dermatological disorders

  • Acne
  • Allergic Reactions
  • Dermatitis
  • Dry Skin
  • Eczema
  • Itching
  • Psoriasis
  • Rashes

Many skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, vittilego and eczema do not have a high success rate of being treated with modern Western medicines. The skin disorders Uticaria and Hives do respond to drugs however only symptomatically. The actual causes of these skin disorders remain a bit of a mystery. As a result treatments are normally topical creams which do not treat the cause just the surface problem. As with many Western medicines the drugs used which are used to treat these disorders can cause a host of unwanted side effects which then makes treatment far more complex.

Traditional Chinese medicine also has difficulty in treating dermatological disorders or skin diseases; however, there is a big difference. Within TCM treatment is more holistic and all-inclusive and we are able identify etiologies or causes for these disorders. A rapid 40% improvement after treating eczema and psoriasis is what our clinic would expect to see along with further improvement over the long-term. The benefits of our treatment are the patient will see and feel an improvement in their health and energy overall. We offer custom Chinese Herbal formulas and Acupuncture as side-by-side treatments.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

"People will ask me about my experience with acupuncture and I love telling them about it. For regular shots I have to look away, but for the acupuncture needles I come in here with total trust. Acupuncture is working great, but more importantly I ‘m learning so many things about food, what to eat and really how to be healthy."

- M.J.N.

"I started acupuncture in August and have had 25% improvement since the initial intake. Because of my injuries, I missed 8 months of karate with my kids, but now I am going back to classes at nearly full capacity. I was willing to try anything for pain, and this has helped immensely, and I’m thankful for that."

- J.R.R.

"You are making a difference in my life- in the comfort levels I’m achieving and things I’m able to do. I don’t understand the “hows and whys” of acupuncture, but I’m grateful each day for your knowledge, skills, care, and compassion. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! You’re making my life much easier!"
