Stop Excessive Sweating with Acupuncture

Although it is summer and sweating is inevitable, excessive sweating can be annoying, embarrassing and it is also an indication of an imbalance. A normal amount of sweating is healthy and it is the natural way our body keeps us from overheating but three percent of the population has a condition of excessive sweating called hyperhidrosis. As in all conditions, when a patient comes to see their acupuncturist for hyperhidrosis, each individual will have a different TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) diagnosis. The acupuncture points and herbal formula chosen depend on what time of day or night the sweating occurs, what part of the body sweats, and the overall condition of the patient. Acupuncture is very effective for excessive sweating and a great alternative to more invasive, possibly dangerous Western treatments.
