Eczema & Aesthetics

TCM Eczema

Eczema also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic, inflammatory skin that causes dry, itching and reddened skin. It isn’t just a concern for adults; it can affect children too, and understanding its roots is key to finding effective relief. In TCM, eczema is seen as a result of imbalances in the body, often due to disruptions in the flow of Qi and blood. External factors such as wind, heat, and dampness can also contribute to eczema, making it a complex interplay of internal and external factors.

Effectively Managing Eczema Symptoms

Herbal medications address underlying imbalances within the body, providing relief from itching, inflammation, skin dryness, weeping, and bleeding associated with eczema. When coupled with acupuncture, this approach not only reduces irritation but also accelerates the drying process of new eczema patches, promoting skin recovery.

Balancing Immunity and Fortifying the Spleen

In TCM, a weak Spleen function is closely linked to a weak digestive system. With a compromised Spleen system, the body is unable to get rid of excess Dampness (internal humidity), leading to build up of Dampness and excess heat that shows up as oozing itchy red skin. Chinese herbal remedies play a crucial role in promoting Spleen function, fortifying the skin barrier to control the itchiness.

Enhancing Blood Circulation for Recovery

Optimal blood and Qi circulation play a vital role in the recovery of wounds in individuals with eczema and Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW). TCM herbs aimed to clear heat, eliminate dampness, and relieve itch are used to support the healing process of eczema wounds and mitigates inflammation beneath the skin.

TCM Aesthetics

TCM Aesthetics (Facial Acupuncture & Gua Sha)

Skin health is dependent on the overall health of the body. TCM aesthetics not only target the local points on the skin, it also aims to nourish the body to ensure that adequate nutrients, blood flow and lymphatic drainage nourish your skin from the inside out.

How Does Facial Acupuncture Work?

Similar to traditional TCM acupuncture, needles puncture the skin during facial acupuncture and create tiny wounds also known as positive microtraumas. As your body senses these wounds, it goes into repair mode – which is the same way microneedling treatments work – to improve skin texture and complexion. These punctures also promote the delivery of essential nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells by stimulating the lymphatic and circulatory systems, nourishing your skin from the inside out for longer-lasting results.
