(WZZM) - More people are turning to acupuncture for relief from their allergies.

A licensed Acupuncturist says some turn to the practice because nothing has worked.

Others are simply trying to avoid side effects of medicines.

Studies have shown acupuncture can help lessen symptoms like watery eyes, runny nose and sneezing.

The most recent study found a combination of acupuncture with allergy medicine may work best.
