From the YinoOva Center blog:

How do you tell when spring has arrived? For some it’s when the birds start singing, or the trees start budding. For others it’s when the crocuses emerge from hibernation and peek through the ground.

In New York City we can tell spring is in the air when our patients come in with red eyes and stuffy noses, says acupuncturist Jill Blakeway, director of the YinOva Center.

Seasonal allergies affect one third of Americans and, according to a study published in the September 2004 issue of Allergy Magazine, a combination of Chinese herbs and weekly acupuncture sessions is a useful way of alleviating the symptoms and may help prevent allergies all together.

How does acupuncture help allergies and what can you do at home to minimize symptoms? Read more on the YinOva Center blog.
