This topic came up twice today so it is a good indication that I need to talk about it.
What is an allergy correction technique and how does it work? There are several different techniques out there all using very different names but the concept is the same. You can desensitize the body's response to allergens by stimulating the meridian system and acupressure points. According to Eastern medical theory when your body energy is in balance you will not suffer from most health disorders resulting from an energy imbalance. Allergies cause imbalances in the energetic pathways of the body (the meridians). By stimulating these energy pathways in a noninvasive and gentle manner we can remove the blockage causing the person to no longer be reactive when exposed to that allergen.
Allergy correction is a very controversial technique in the West and although many have reported great success, one should use extreme caution if they have serious allergies with a history of anaphylaxis. I have had one form of this technique performed on me and I can report great success. It nearly eliminated my cat allergy. However, it is important to continue treatment for as long as your practitioner suggests to prevent re-occurence.
Although I focus a lot more with balancing the integrity of the gut wall to reduce allergy symptoms, I have been trained in the allergy correction technique as well and find it to be a nice compliment to an overall program. For more information feel free to conta
