Acupuncture and Herbs for Skin Care
Skin Conditions

Many skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and
urticaria reactions, may be managed by acupuncture
and Chinese herbal medicine as alternative therapies.
Eczema is characterized by redness of the skin, itching,
crusting and scaling, and blisters filled with liquid. It can
be difficult to treat, depending on the severity and
underlying causes. Eczema associated with asthma is
one of the most difficult to treat and may need long-term
treatment. Acupuncture is potentially helpful in
decreasing eczema, chronic urticaria reaction, psoriasis
conditions, and pains of herpes infection.

the art of acupuncture.

With seasonal allergies torturing one-third of Americans,
ancient acupuncture can provide a new kind of relief.
While over-the-counter medications often come with
unwanted side-effects, acupuncture does not. This
makes it a welcome alternative for people looking for a
new way to combat allergies this season. seasonal allergies
