Atopic eczema  is a very common inflammatory skin condition.

Robina 7 Day Doctors and Acupuncture recommends this video.

Psoriasis (chronic plaque psoriasis, or psoriasis vulgaris) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. It is characterised by well-defined red, scaly plaques on the extensor surfaces of the body (e.g. knees, elbows, hands sacrum) and scalp.

In general, acupuncture is believed to stimulate the nervous system and cause the release of neurochemical messenger molecules.

Acupuncture may help to relieve symptoms in people with atopic eczema and psoriasis by:

  • reducing inflammation, by promoting release of vascular and immunomodulatory factors
  • regulating mediators of the allergic reaction to extrinsic allergens, for example Ig-E
  • enhancing natural killer cell activities and modulating the number and ratio of immune cell types
  • increasing local microcirculation

Acupuncture is a tried and tested system which has been used in China and other eastern cultures for thousands of years.   It can  restore, promote and maintain good health. Its benefits are now widely acknowledged all over the world.  In the past decade  acupuncture has begun to feature more prominently in mainstream healthcare.

Acupuncture works on different pathways

The pathways which acupuncture uses are myriad, and in any 1 person or medical condition the pathways will be different.  So we urge people to try treatment at least 6 times for their condition before evaluating.  The outcomes for different conditions and different people makes it impossible to predict how any one person will respond.
