It seems like the spa has a cure or enhancement for almost everything these days: stress, wrinkles, joint pain, acne, cellulite, even less-than-desirable eyelashes. Now, according to this New York Times article, it looks like we may even be able to add one more to the list: spa time may help reduce allergy symptoms!

A recent study tested over 400 people with grass and pollen allergies. They were divided into three groups: group one received regular acupuncture treatments over the eight week trial period, group two received placebo needles, and group three had no treatment. At the end of the trial period, the group who was receiving true acupuncture felt the most relief from allergy symptoms.  However, once the treatment stopped, the effects started to fade.

Essentially, acupuncture DOES help with allergy relief, especially with consistent treatment. The problem with this? Acupuncture is an EXPENSIVE procedure! Luckily, from April 15-21, spa and wellness locations all over the nation have acupuncture treatments on the menu for just $50 each! Book one now for some relief from runny nose and watery eyes:
