Acupuncture as an add-on therapy increases the effectiveness of sublingual allergen-specific immunotherapy (SASIT) for patients with allergic rhinitis (AR). In a retrospective study carried out in China, 120 patients with AR were included. Half received acupuncture plus SASIT (treatment group), while the other half receieved SASIT only (control group). After eight weeks of treatment, patients in the treatment group reported greater symptom relief and quality of life improvement, compared with patients in the control group. Although patients in the treatment group reported mild pain at the needling sites, no patients stopped their treatment.
