How Can Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Help Skin Conditions?
When consulting someone with a skin condition, it is important that we get a bigger picture and try to understand the root cause of the issue. Often skin conditions are influenced by the health of the gut and digestion, the body’s immune response and reactions to stress. We take all this into account and develop a treatment plan based on each person’s unique presentation.
We use both Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture with the goal of relieving symptoms and helping to restore the body to a more optimal state of health. If your body is functioning better as a whole, there is less likelihood of excessive inflammation and flare ups of skin conditions.
