Skin Disorders and Skin Diseases are the most complex conditions to address with both Western and Chinese Medicine. This is because the Skin can be affected by both Internal and External factors of the body – such as Food (Internally) and Exposure to Irritants (Externally).
Acupuncture can be effective in reducing the severity of Skin problems by clearing up any underlying imbalances allowing for them to occur.
Chinese Medicine may help reduce the severity of the following Skin Disorders and Skin Diseases
- Acne – Hormonal and Environmental
- Acute and Chronic Eczema
- Allergic Rashes
- Psoriatic Arthritis
Experience has showed that quiet often there is an emotional or food related link to chronic Skin conditions (such as Psoriasis) – a marriage breakdown, stressful events, binges on certain types of foods….If a strong emotional link is found, in addition to Acupuncture, Counselling is also strongly advised.
