More and more people are suffering from allergies. This can be any adverse reaction to food, pets, plants, or the man-made environment. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs help allergy sufferers by building you up from the inside, so that reactions to the environment do not occur. When your immune system is hyper-sensitive and on “high alert” it treats things as invaders that don’t necessarily need to be. Acupuncture can calm the immune system and encourage it to restrict its “high alert” status for situations that truly require it.

Acupuncture & Addiction
Studies suggest that acupuncture may effectively reduce alcohol intake, attenuate alcohol withdrawal syndrome, and rebalance AUD-induced maladaptation in neurotransmitters and hormones in related brain areas. Acupuncture may effectively reduce intake of additional highly addictive substances, reduce stress-induced relapse, exert a therapeutic effect, and improving immune dysfunction. The NADA protocol advises that 5-point auricular acupuncture relieves withdrawal symptoms, prevents symptoms of craving, and increases patient participation rates in long-term treatment programs.

Petechiae are pinpoint, round brown-purple spots due to bleeding under the skin, may be in a small area due to minor trauma or widespread due to blood-clotting disorder.
