Acupuncture and Skin Disorder

In many skin disorders, such as neurodermatitis, acne, herpes zoster, psoriasis, and eczema, acupuncture treatment is effective. According to traditional ideas, the skin is related to the lung and the large intestine, and skin disorders are therefore treated with points on these channels. Both excess- and deficiency-type conditions should be considered for needle stimulation. Principles of treatment:

– Points surrounding the disorder:

The diseased skin area should not be needled, especailly ulcerated regions

– Points on the lung channel because the skin is related to the lung

-. Sp.10 Xuehai because of its anti-allergic properties

-. Du 14 Dazhui and Sp.6 Sanjinjiao because of their anti-inflammatory and immune-enhancing effects.

-. LI.11 Quchi as a homeostatic point and immune-enhancing properties

-. Lu.9 Taiyuan is the influential point for the vascular system and is needled in disturbances of blood supply

Besides needling, laser treatment has a major role in the therapy of skin disorders. The laser light can be used to  radiate skin lesions, for example in herpes simplex and in deficient wound healing. Local and specific distal acupuncture points are also radiated.

Acne Vulgaris

In the treatment of acne, acupuncture points in the affected area are selected, for example on the face and back. In addition, the specific distal points on those channels passing through the affected region are treated.

Having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility I went for treatment with Daian. She made me feel at ease straight away and gave me support and advice alongside the weekly acupuncture sessions. Three months later I discovered I was pregnant (without any other interventions). We welcomed our baby into the world almost 11 months to the day after my first visit to Daian. I really believe it would not have been possible without her!I remain a regular client and I can’t recommend Daian highly enough.

Daian is an extremely talented and caring professional and I cannot say enough about how helpful and effective her treatments have been. I highly recommend a visit here if you are thinking about acupuncture. The atmosphere is peaceful and calming and Daian’s highly effective skills and treatment provides welcome relief from chronic pain in a calm in a restful environment.

It was an incredible experience and I would like to call it “magic”! I had not been able to sleep well for several months, and my whole body felt hard when I lied in bed, especially the neck and shoulders. Daian found a little lump on the back of my neck at the consultation . 30 minutes of acupuncture after, I immediately felt my neck relaxed. I did it again two days later, and the lump just disappeared! I went to sleep easily for the first time in months! Thank you, Daian! Thank you, the wonderful Chinese medical treatment!!

I have been going to Daian for treatment for many years now. She is a kind and compassionate lady who is also very accomplished in Acupuncture. I have suffered with severe Vertigo for many years, having had medication, exercises etc to no avail. Having treatment with Daian has completely changed my life - I very seldom have symptoms now, thanks to acupuncture but, if it flares up, a visit to the clinic soon settles it down again. My husband has also recently started to attend her clinic to have treatment for migraines and this, also, has been very successful. I would recommend Dr Daian Zou highly.
