Can acupuncture help with eczema? How long does it take to see results?

Aram Akopyan (Glendale, CA) on Jan 30, 2012
Skin conditions are often caused by a complex combination of underlying causes. In my practice, I successfully treat such conditions with a combination approach, using topical and internal herbal medicines, acupuncture, dietary cleanses and even mind-body solutions. Keep in mind that the skin is the outward expression of several internal organs, such as the lungs, liver and intestines, and the associated emotions that go with these organs. Often once we identify and resolve the underlying emotion the problem becomes much easier to deal with.

Acupuncture can help with eczema. Results vary based on the severity of the eczema. Steroid creams are effective, but are only a temporary fix. Acupuncture treats the eczema from the inside out. It would require some time to see results. Start treatment a few months before the beginning of winter.

Yes, we have treated several skin disorders such as eczema. The body will become balanced and eventually heal itself over time. There is no way to predict exactly how long it will take for the results to become visible. Every individual varies. We suggest starting with a course of 10 treatments in order to see how the body responds to acupuncture and going from there.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine can definitely help eczema. This skin condition is a reflection of an internal imbalance. Once this internal imbalance is addressed the skin will heal and respond. Most patients see results within the first 4 to 6 weeks of treatment, depending on the severity of the eczema.
