Skin Conditions

In diagnosing skin conditions the Acupuncturist will consider physical, emotional and environmental factors. By taking the pulse, asking some in depth questions and observing the manifestations on the skin a diagnosis will be made according to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).

Acupuncture and herbs treat the skin in a unique manner first addressing symptoms and then treating the root cause to prevent reoccurrence. Depending on the presentation Acupuncture, herbs or both may be used to treat. The amount of treatments required will depend on how long the condition has been problematic.

Conditions treated:

  • Acne

  • Pruritis (Itching)
  • Psoriasis
  • Urticaria (Rash with itchy hives)
