Dermatology/Skin

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:

  • Eczema

  • Nummular

  • Dermatitis

  • Hand eczema

  • Contact dermatitis

  • Seborrheic dermatitis

  • Dyshidrotic eczema

  • Ear eczema

  • Scalp eczema

  • Psoriasis

  • Hives/Urticaria

  • Acne

  • Chronic itching

  • Cradle cap

  • Shingles

  • Pityriasis rosea

  • Steroid induced dermatitis

  • Dermatitis herpetiformis

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.

 
“I had never had acupuncture before, but when my skin disease Pityriasis rosea lasted longer than 8 weeks, I decided to give it a try. I went in with red, itchy, swollen skin patches all over my body, and left three weeks later with my skin looking almost back to perfect. As a 22 year old female, in the summer time, this skin virus was a real downer and [the treatment] helped me gain my skin, and confidence back. Acupuncture works, and I will definitely be back.”
