Alleviating Child’s Severe Allergies with Acupressure
My 9-year-old son has been coming to the weMED Clinic since August of 2013. When my son was very young, he started exhibiting seasonal allergy symptoms. By the time he was eight years old, however, his symptoms had worsened to the point where he had allergy symptoms almost daily and caught colds very easily. I didn’t know what to do, and I didn’t want to give him antihistamines because of the possible side effects. While searching for an acupuncturist who would treat children, I finally found Dr. You and Dr. Ma at the weMED Clinic.
Initially, I spoke with Dr. Ma, who was knowledgeable and possessed a well-rounded approach to treating illnesses. I brought my son in for treatment. However, my son was extremely afraid of the needles. Dr. You and Dr. Ma were flexible and decided to use herbs, acupressure, and cupping to treat his allergies instead of acupuncture.
My son has responded very well to the treatment. He still visits the clinic once a month for some minor symptoms, but his immune system has become much stronger. I have also noticed that his overall health (not just his allergy symptoms) has improved.
