Relieve Spring & Summer Allergies with Acupuncture

During spring and summer, allergies are generally induced by wind-born tree, grass, or weed pollen, and can cause such symptoms as: sneezing; nasal congestion; runny nose; watery, itchy, or red eyes; headaches; fatigue; and sometimes coughing and wheezing.

Conventional treatment of allergies by Western medicine will have one using antihistamine agents daily. Unfortunately, these only treat the manifestations of the disease, not the root. They cause a number of side-effects like suchh as dizziness, fatigue, insomnia, nervousness, dryness, and gastro-intestinal disturbances.

Acupuncture offers allergy sufferers a way to strengthen their bodies and significantly reduce their symptoms, without unpleasant side effects. There is often a quick sense of relief for the allergy sufferer, many of whom are able to reduce or eliminate their dependency on allergy medications.

Acupuncture focuses on restoring balance to the body, improving immune system functioning, helping to relieve pain, reducing stress, enhancing blood circulation, and promoting overall health and well-being. It’s a natural therapy that is safe for both adults and children, and one that is highly effective when performed by an experienced practitioner.

Acupuncture, Stress Relief and Wellness

Acupuncture promotes the smooth flow of qi, of energy, in the body. When the energy channels become blocked, we tend to feel stressed. The feeling is like having anxiety, or a feeling of sluggishness, or feeling there’s not enough time. By unblocking the channels, the energy in your system becomes abundant, giving a sense of well being, confidence and vitality. This also promotes circulation of blood and vital fluids. This promotes health because the nutrients get distributed in the body via the blood, and toxins get removed. Physical health improves. Also, the mind becomes calmer and more relaxed as the the energy harmonizes and flows smoothly. We all love a peaceful mind.

Acupuncture, Emotions and Stress

Acupuncture will balance your energy. When your energy is balanced you’ll find that the emotional ups and downs you were experiencing will harmonize. You will feel more balanced, stress free, joyful and at peace.  Not only will your body relax, but you will also have more energy available to do the things you love.  The activities of daily life will become a breeze, not so much a chore.

Acupuncture and Diabetes

Acupuncture is very effective treating Diabetes.  How?  By stimulating the appropriate energy meridians, the pancreas will produce more insulin and keep blood sugar levels more normal.   Acupuncture relieves stress.  This takes the pressure off the Spleen and Pancreas, allowing for better insulin production.  Acupuncture in itself is very relaxing.  When you are more relaxed, all of your body systems will work better.  Plus, you’ll feel great!



Acupuncture and Headaches

Our goal here at the Acupuncture & Awareness Center of Knoxville is to help people achieve optimum levels of health – physically, mentally, energetically and emotionally – as all are related.  With a headache, energy gets stuck in the head.  This happens for many reasons. A few are:

1. Energy does drain when it rises.

2. Too much energy rises at once.

3. The body is overheated.

4. Excess Anger.

5. The inability to release tension and negative emotions.

6. Stress.

There are hundreds more reasons.  Acupuncture will balance your system and the headaches, even migraine headaches, will go away.

Natural Relief for Chronic Health Issues

Acupuncture provides healing benefits for those dealing with acute issues. Regular treatment supports patients with serious health conditions that also require regular medical treatment.

Cancer treatment. Acupuncture helps relieve the side effects of conventional cancer care. Reduce chemotherapy side effects such as nausea, fatigue and peripheral neuropathy or ease the side effects of radiation therapy, including dry mouth, colitis, and pain.

Chronic pain. Pain issues, including spinal, pelvic and abdominal pain, arthritis, and fibromyalgia, are all responsive to acupuncture treatment. Chronic daily headaches, tension headache, and migraines are often very responsive to acupuncture.

Neurological problems such as stroke rehabilitation, carpal tunnel syndrome, Bell’s palsy, and peripheral neuropathy can benefit from acupuncture treatment.

Clear Up Skin Issues with Acupuncture

In diagnosing skin conditions, acupuncturists consider physical, emotional, and environmental factors. By taking the pulse, asking in-depth questions, and observing the tongue and skin, your acupuncturist will diagnose the condition according to its internal and external factors.

Skin diseases are generally caused by internal disharmonies, such as lack of Qi and blood, or environmental influences, such as wind, dryness, dampness, and heat. Stress, diet, and the individual’s constitution also contribute to these patterns.

Two common problems often treated are acne and eczema.

  • Acne: Acne is generally associated with reactions to hormones, bacteria, and oils in the skin. It is most often associated with dampness, heat, and in severe cases blood stagnation. Once the dampness and heat are cleared from the system, the skin will also clear.
  • Eczema, also called atopic dermatitis, is a chronic allergic reaction which causes the skin to become red, inflamed, intensely itchy, and in some cases to blister. People who have eczema often also have asthma and allergies. All of these conditions are caused by heat, wind, and dampness, and can be treated effectively with acupuncture.

Likewise, acupuncture can also be effective in treating other skin conditions, such as, psoriasis, shingles, vitiligo, hives, warts, rosacea, and dermatitis.
