Did you manage to go outside during the bank holiday weekend and see spring shine?

According to Traditional Chinese medicine, we have now moved from the Water element of winter to the Wood element of spring. But what does that mean to you? Our Wood energy allows for a lot of movement and progress, both internally and externally. In spring we might have more energy to get going on a new project or tackle that spring clean.

Spring, the season of growth, regeneration and new beginnings, is a great time to make a fresh start with your health. However, the warmer and sunnier weather also means an increase in itchy eyes, runny noses, blocked sinuses and sneezing for many.

Studies have shown that the regular use of acupuncture compared to just using anti-histamines can show greater and longer-lasting results for allergy symptoms. Needles placed at certain points in the face can help to open up a blocked nose, reduce inflammation and stop the itch.

Now is a good time to start treatment and balance your immune response.
