Acupuncture for Skin Conditions
There are a wide range of common skin conditions that Acupuncture has been shown to help. From Acne, a chronic inflammatory skin disease often on the face or chest to excema, psoriasis, roscea and hives.
Conventional treatments include topical products, oral antibiotics or hormonal pills.
Reviews have shown that acupuncture is safe and effective for the treatment of skin issues, and possibly better than routine western medicine.(Li 2009). It is believed to reduce inflammation, modulate immunity and increasing local microcirculation. It can also be helpful in the case of allergic reactions by regulating mediators of the reaction.
"I have suffered with a rare and stubborn skin condition on my face and body that was exacerbated by monthly hormones and later pregnancy. Jo really helped improve the condition giving me back my self esteem and comfort!." Helen, Brighton
Jo has successfully treated many patients with skin issues from excema to hormonal imbalances and rarer conditions too.
