Allergic Rhinitis or Hay Fever affects 1 in 5 people in Australia. Oriental Medicine understands allergies as a deficiency of energy in the body. The lymphatic system plays a major role in the proper functioning of the elimination of wastes and of the immune system. If the energy of the body is low the powerful disease-fighting elements of the immune system are unable to be carried by the blood to the areas of the body where they are needed.
The deficiency is often an imbalance in the Kidney, Liver, Lung or Stomach energy systems. If your eyes are itchy and watery most likely your liver is not in harmony, if you have a stuffy or runny nose then the lungs are out of balance. If you’ve had a busy winter with a few colds and not a lot of rest your kidney energy may be weakened and overall health compromised.
Shiatsu is a non-invasive TCM therapy that supports whole-body wellness. The pressure applied during a treatment stimulates lymph glands to release cells and chemicals which fight allergens. It also improves blood circulation around the body increasing the number of immune agents. Through a series of treatments, Shiatsu can alleviate the symptoms of Hay Fever and work with the underlying cause. This spring relieve hay fever with Shiatsu and specially formulated Chinese herbs.
