A Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Clinic
Natural Therapies - Acupuncture & Herbal Remedies
Traditional Chinese medicine treatments for skin disorders have been in use for over thousands years. Acupuncture
and Chinese herbal therapy are the most common methods in TCM used to treat skin conditions and can provide
longer-lasting relief than Western methods. Numerous clinical studies have been conducted that prove Chinese
medicine's efficacy in the treatment of skin conditions
Chinese medicine, the skin belongs to the organ of lung. The strong incidence of eczema accompanied by
respiratory ailments confirms this connection. Chinese medicine practitioners are often able to help more than one
illness at a time. Acupuncture can yield miraculous results for eczema, and modified versions of the treatment have
been created for children with eczema, and are known to also alleviate asthma.
In Chinese medicine, the two main sources behind skin problems are believed to be 'heat' and 'dampness.' The
term 'heat' refers to distress in the body which can be caused by overwork, emotional stress and/or over-activated
hormones. The insufficient flushing of waste and toxins from the body, as well as water retention, and a humid or
moist environment can cause 'dampness' in a person.
The power of Chinese medicine is in a personalized treatment. For example, you and I might both suffer from skin
conditions but the treatments with Chinese medicine will differ due to ones individual underlying patterns. Therefore
a comprehensive consultation and assessment is a must in order to find what your individual under pattern condition
is and then decide what acu-points to select for stimulation and which herbs to use to create a customized
acupuncture treatment and herbal remedies. In our clinic we made husbands of special formulas including herbal
pills, tablets, capsules, tea, herbal creams and lotions, etc with pure natural herbs in order to conveniently be taken
and use for the patients and also it is convenient for our practitioners to modify according to the progress.
