Acupuncture for Allergy Relief

As we start to close in on ragweed season in central Virginia, it’s almost time to reach for the netipot and buy some kleenex in bulk. If you find yourself sneezing, and sniffling your way through the end of August, consider trying acupuncture as a way to manage your symptons. In this study from 2014 it was found that  receiving regular acupuncture was just as effective as loratadine (the active ingredient in Claritin) at managing allergic rhinitis.

Community acupuncture sessions are available on our sliding scale, and wherever you are on the sliding scale you can always purchase a package of 5 sessions for the price of 4 sessions.
