In the season of Metal which governs the Lungs, this is also the time of year when sneezing and stuffy noses return for those who suffer from seasonal allergies.

In fact, allergies were one of the main reasons I sought out acupuncture for the first time as a patient nearly 20 years ago. I suffered from all of the classic symptoms: scratchy throat, itchy eyes and congestion that kept me up at night. When my life-long allergy symptoms virtually disappeared in under six visits, I knew acupuncture was a game changer. So much so, I ended up quitting my corporate job and devoting the next 12 years to studying the art of Chinese Medicine!

To help you this season, here are a couple of my favorite quick-relief acupuncture points as well as essential oils I have personally used on myself and in my practice:

1.) Governing Vessel 24 | Shen Ting | “Spirit Court”

This point is located at the midline and 1/2 finger-breadth above your hairline. In line with the nose, this point works wonders for helping to clear stuffiness, sometimes within just a few minutes of applying pressure on the point.
