Skin complaints such as psoriasis, eczema and acne are among the most unpleasant chronic health problems today. Not only may the condition be accompanied by severe symptoms such as intolerable itching, the appearance of affected skin can be a major issue in confidence and self esteem. Many sufferers are also concerned about the possible side effects of treatments such as steroid creams.  In understanding skin problems, Chinese Medicine not only offers effective ways of clearing the skin but also addresses these underlying issues in order to bring about a lasting improvement.

Treatments available in Chinese Medicine include:

Chinese Herbs: Herbs have a deserved and proven reputation for clearing chronic skin conditions and are probably the most effective treatment available anywhere for such problems.

Acupuncture helps to move energy in the skin and can have remarkable and rapid effects. It is best combined with Chinese Herbs for a lasting cure.

Dietary Therapy: Chinese dietary principles are an essential support to herbal therapy. A short “fast” on a limited range of healing foods is often the first step to improvement.

Massage can release blocked emotions which contribute to skin problems. Massage with Chinese healing oils is effective to rebuild skin tissue after herbs, diet and acupuncture have cleared inflammation and congestion.
