Dermatological conditions such as Acne, eczema, psoriasis, fungal infections, or rosacea may prove difficult to treat with conventional methods alone. Many of these conditions originate from autoimmune issues, which are deeply rooted in our immune system and manifest on the skin as lesions.
Chinese herbal medicine gently helps the body restore its natural balance, treating the root of the disorder whilst simultaneously addressing the symptoms unique to each individual (i.e. inflammation, dryness, lesions, oozing, itching, bleeding, etc).
Acupuncture and herbal medicine are particularly renowned for their use in pain relief, regulating underlying disharmony, managing diverse symptoms, and improving the overall quality of life.
Our diagnosis will be based upon careful inspection of the exterior skin condition, including the skin colour and type of eruption. Information will be sought on your diet and digestion, the factors which affect the symptoms, and the onset and duration of the condition, along with information about your energy levels, emotions, sleep patterns, and immune system.
To achieve the best results, our treatments may combine herbal preparations for drinking as well as our herbal cosmetics.*
Our herbal formulas improve blood circulation, oxygenate the skin and remove excess toxins from the body, whilst our cosmetics easily penetrate the epidermis to provide full nourishment to deeper layers of the skin.
*All cosmetics are produced using organic materials where possible, and Chinese medicinal herbs are known for their skin healing properties. All products are made in small batches in our clinic, based on traditional Chinese herbal medicine recipes for skin conditions. Our herbal formulations do not contain artificial colours, preservatives, petrochemical substances, steroids, or animal products.
