“I WILL DEVOTE MY ENERGY TO A LIFETIME OF HEALING THROUGH ACUPUNCTURE”
Dr. Shan Kong




“THERE WERE FOUR THINGS WHICH THE MASTER TAUGHT—LETTERS, ETHICS, DEVOTION OF SOUL, AND TRUTHFULNESS"
Confucius
(552 B.C.—479 B.C.)








Acupuncture for Dermatitis

Dermatitis, also known as eczema, means skin inflammation, but it embraces a range of ailments. In most people, the early stages of dermatitis are characterized by red, dry, and itchy skin. More serious dermatitis may result in crusty scales, painful cracks, or blisters that ooze fluid. Many things can irritate the skin, but treatment is similar for most types of skin irritation and inflammation.

How does acupuncture work for Dermatitis

Acupuncture can help dermatitis in a few ways.
First, it can improve blood flow to area that are involved and increase delivery of nutrients to help the skin heal.
Second, acupuncture improves the function or balance of immune cells to resolve the inflammation that causes the dermatitis.
Third, acupuncture helps to reduce a person's reactivity to the environment (one of the causes of dermatitis).
Finally, acupuncture helps to strengthen the skin itself, making it less susceptible to dermatitis (or any inflammation) in the first place.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
