Acupuncture Skin Treatments
Oriental Medicine teaches that every system in the body is connected. By affecting energy meridians, the flow or qi– or life energy – can be changed, restoring balance or promoting health. In Western Medicine, it is similarly understood that the human body is complex, and your systems work together in complex ways.
The complexity and interconnectivity of the body is the foundation of acupuncture. By manipulating the flow of energy in the body, an acupuncturist can modify hormone levels, reducing stress and boosting circulation and regeneration. This is why Acupuncture Associates of America is able to provide so many acupuncture treatments to our clients in the Albuquerque area!
Can Acupuncture Treat Skin Conditions?
Many people are familiar with acupuncture for pain management. However, this is just one potential benefit of treatment. Acupuncture can also be an effective skin treatment, providing relief from a variety of problems including acne and eczema.
Most skin problems are inflammatory responses, and acupuncture is excellent for reducing inflammation. Additionally, acupuncture can improve circulation and boost the production of collagen, making it an effective skin care treatment to prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Natural Skin Treatments
For many patients, the appeal of acupuncture is that it is more natural than other skin treatments. Acupuncture uses your body’s own energy and regenerative power. You do not introduce foreign chemicals to your body. When coupled with a healthy diet and overall wellness, acupuncture can be powerfully effective in boosting the health of your skin.
