Acne has profound effects on people’s lives, effecting social life, education, and even employment. Acne is also one of the most common skin conditions. Traditional Chinese Medicine takes a holistic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of acne by identifying specific imbalances in the body, and then using acupuncture and Chinese herbs to correct them.  Correcting the imbalance does not mean simply treating the symptoms or masking the condition, but rather correcting the root of the problem by encouraging self-healing of the body. The key is to correctly identify the imbalance that is causing the acne.
