Welcome to Integrated Acupuncture
CURRENT – A good time to treat your seasonal allergy (hay fever) with acupuncture
Acupuncture is an effective way to treat both chronic and acute allergies, including a seasonal allergy to pollen commonly known as “hay fever”. This involves a course of acupuncture treatments over a period of two to three weeks, aiming to rebalance an overactive immune system. A 2013 Korean study published in the European Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology looked into the efficacy of acupuncture in the treatment of hay fever. This study demonstrated a significant reduction in symptoms within the acupuncture group, compared to placebo: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23253122
Traditional acupuncture is a holistic, natural and safe healing system suitable for all ages that works to maintain the body’s equilibrium by focusing on all aspects of wellbeing – physical, mental and emotional. It aims to stimulate the body to “rebalance” itself by activating our self-healing powers and can be very effective on its own or in combination with conventional medicine.
Trained in England and Switzerland, I offer a full range of acupuncture services and practise a gentle integrated style of treatment, combining a contemporary symptom-oriented TCM approach, Five Elements Constitutional Acupuncture & Dr Tan’s Balance Method (Tan Wu Bian > Si Yuan), a modern advanced system of acupuncture.
I am happy to talk about any aspects of your health and treatment, so contact me if you would like to learn more about acupuncture and how it can help you.
