Suffering From Skin Conditions? Try Acupuncture!

Acupuncture Treatment for Acne, Psoriasis, and Other Skin Conditions

For thousands of years, acupuncture has been practiced in various societies and cultures in Asia. It has been practiced in Europe for hundreds of years and has been found to be effective in treating psoriasis and acne when other methods have failed.

The use of acupuncture for the treatment of skin conditions and skin allergies began in China. The patients involved in the first experimental treatments turned to acupuncture when their conditions were impervious to conventional treatment protocols. The research teams gave controlled acupuncture treatments to all the subjects instead of their usual conventional treatments.  The researchers claim that acupuncture treatments led to the remission of conditions in 50 percent of the initial test group and in some instances even led to the complete cure of the conditions. All in all, the results show that acupuncture led to a significant improvement and a better quality of life for the majority of patients. To the Western medical community, this outcome was astonishing, to say the least.

According to Chinese medicine, the human body has special sections that are referred to as meridians. These meridians are believed to help rectify energy excess, or deficiency, and bring back balance throughout the body. Acupuncturists and other practitioners of Chinese medicine believe that by stimulating specific meridians with acupuncture needles, they are able to eliminate blockages leading to the improvement of different types of skin allergies. Acupuncture has shown to bring about substantial results and a growing number of medical doctors now recommend it as a non-invasive alternative form of therapy. After a few rounds of acupuncture treatment, some sufferers of psoriasis and acne have experienced marked improvements in their symptoms.

Acupuncture’s usefulness as valid treatment for psoriatic arthritis is one the more important uses of this therapy. Psoriatic arthritis is a skin disease that inflames the joints of the body and causes severe pain for the unfortunate sufferer. Acupuncture has shown to work to help control the pain of psoriatic arthritis by stimulating the production of the body’s own natural endorphins.

A growing number of doctors are now turning to acupuncture as a form of complementary treatment for other standard modalities. So, if you are bothered by frequent skin irritations and allergies, you should visit your local Encino Acupuncturist about possibly combining your standard medical treatment with acupuncture to get better and long lasting results.
