Acupuncture for hay fever

Seasonal allergic rhinitis, perineal allergic rhinitis, and other allergies.
Acupuncture has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of hay fever (allergic rhinitis) and in reducing dependence on rescue medications. 6-8 treatment sessions are advised ideally before the onset of symptoms but also shown to help after the onset of symptoms.

Studies have also shown acupuncture to be effective in perennial allergic rhinitis.
Although the exact mechanism of acupuncture treatment for these conditions is not utterly clear at present, results of clinical studies indicate that acupuncture therapy has a comparable effect to the medication treatment on patients with moderate to severe allergic rhinitis, It is safe with no severe adverse effects.

Acupuncture was a solution to my hay fever!

After suffering from hay fever/allergies for 3-4 years which made
everyday activities and sleep uncomfortable, I thought I would try
acupuncture. After some research, I decided to try medical acupuncture with Dr Hans Mathew. At the first consultation, he explained everything in detail and made me feel at ease, as I was a bit apprehensive of needles. I could feel slight improvement with the first treatment itself! And this improved further with additional sessions. I started breathing more through the nose and the eye-watering and itching reduced. My sinuses are no longer congested which has markedly improved my breathing, and in turn, my sleep appears to be much better, and could really enjoy the summer. This year I have been Ok so far but relaxed as I know that I can contact
him if needed.
