What are Sinus Allergies?

Allergic sinusitis, more commonly known as sinus allergies, is an allergic reaction to airborne allergens like pollen, mold spores, dust mites, or pet dander. This reaction causes inflammation of the mucus membranes that line the interior of the sinuses, resulting in blockage, pressure, pain, and other symptoms.

Sinus allergies are a common condition that affects more than three million people a year. Some people are affected by sinus allergies all year round, while others only experience symptoms during certain times of the year.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient healing practice that originated in China centuries ago. In Western countries, the technique is used to treat sinus allergies as well as muscle pain, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, gynecological problems, infertility, emotional/mental problems, and digestion problems. For those concerned by the potentially dangerous side effects of pain drugs, acupuncture provides a safe, effective alternative to manage pain symptoms.

During an acupuncture treatment, fine, hair-thin needles are inserted just under the skin at specific points on the body. These points are connected by a network of energy lines called meridians. Meridians serve as the pathway along which our qi (pronounced “chee”), or vital life energy, flows.  This energy helps your body maintain balance and promotes its natural ability to heal itself.

The acupuncture needles stimulate the surrounding tissues, improving the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the muscles, tissues, and surrounding organs. This provides several benefits, including reduced pain and improved healing.

How Does Acupuncture Relieve the Symptoms of Sinus Allergies?

Acupuncture treatments for sinus allergies usually involve placing needles in your sphenopalatine ganglion acupoint. The sphenopalatine ganglion is a group of nerve cells located behind your nose. These nerves carry sensory information from your nose, mouth, and throat to your brain. Stimulating these nerves can help control nasal congestion and other symptoms.
