Whole Systems Traditional Chinese Medicine (WS-TCM) offers safe and effective treatment for skin disorders. Many conventional dermatological treatments cause unwanted side effects—steroid creams can cause withdrawal rashes, and internal steroids can damage the immune system. WS-TCM treatment—including Cosmetic Acupuncture and Facial Rejuvenation—strengthens the immune system and addresses the root causes of skin disorders to help patients heal.
Unlike conventional dermatologists, WS-TCM practitioners customize treatments for each patient, adjusting formulas as the skin changes and heals. We also specialize in pediatric skin care, providing needle-free treatments for children as well as non-toxic topical treatments. Adult and pediatric skin disorders that respond well to Chinese medicine include:
Steroid induced dermatitis
Patients commonly experience significant relief from itching and discomfort within two weeks, while a full course of treatment for root disorders takes six months or, in rare cases, longer. The first three months of treatment focus on clearing itching, pain, redness, dryness, heat, oozing, plaques, and bumps. The second three months repair and nourish the skin, preventing flare-ups and reducing the likelihood of recurrence. The entire 6-month program consists of:
Individualized Attention and Instruction
24 Acupuncture Treatments
16 Chinese Herbal Formulas
Natural, Non-Toxic Topical Ointments, Lotions & Washes
Natural and Effective Vitamins and Supplements
Nutritional Support, Information & Education
We recommend that you see your medical doctor for any unresolved rash of concern, a rash associated with a fever, a changing or new mole, or skin cancer.
