The Facts About Eczema
The Raleigh Acupuncture eczema treatment works best to control eczema and other chronic skin conditions. Here are the basic facts about eczema. First, the battle is not about a permanent cure, but about control. Second, dermatologists can offer steroid creams to reduce the itching, which are essential at times, but they are not something you want to use all the time. Third, scratching is the worst thing you can do, as it damages the skin and makes the eczema flare. Fourth, stress triggers eczema flares.
- Acupuncture resolves eczema flares and helps bring you into remission and keep you there.
- Acupuncture controls eczema so you can dramatically reduce the use of corticosteroids.
- Acupuncture’s eczema treatment is an essential tool for you in managing your condition.

How It Works
In our practice we have developed a powerful eczema treatment to resolve and manage eczema. While every treatment is custom made to the particular patient’s condition, in general we focus on the following things. First, we use acupuncture points that clear heat from the skin. Eczema most always involves heat at the skin level which damages the skin. Clearing heat from the skin resolves this problem, taking the fire out of the eczema and allowing the body to heal itself.
For people with “dry type” eczema, we use points to moisten the skin. In acupuncture terms this means the points stimulated actually promote the body to generate more moisture for the skin, healing dryness from within. You all know the importance for using moisturizer on damaged skin. Acupuncture’s eczema treatment prompts the body to moisturize itself from the inside on an ongoing basis.
Some people have a “damp type” of eczema. This involves skin that weeps with moisture. In these cases we must address and resolve the internal dampness. Dampness and internal heat always cause trouble for the skin. Addressing these issues brings amazing relief.
What To Expect
After you have begun the Raleigh Acupuncture eczema treatment, you will see your current flares resolve. You will need less corticosteroids and you will have less new flares. You will be very pleased with how your skin feels and looks.
We use sterile, single-use, hair thin needles. You will hardly feel them. The treatments are very relaxing. Many of our patients fall asleep during their sessions. Afterwards you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
The Stress Factor
We know that STRESS makes all health conditions worse. It is no different with eczema. Our eczema treatment includes points to help manage your stress better.
In Chinese medicine terms, we boost your “Chinese” Liver function. The Liver, in Chinese medicine, is responsible for moving Qi (energy) through the body. When the Qi is flowing, you are much less susceptible to feeling stress. When stress impacts you less, your eczema will flare less.

What our Clients are Saying
I developed eczema as a child and have managed the condition for years with steroid creams. Recently my stress level went up from a work situation, and the itching became intolerable. The creams didn’t help and I was desperate. Research online led me to Raleigh Acupuncture. They treated the itching by reducing my eczema. It worked better than the cream ever did. I wish I had done this 15 years ago, as my skin and itching is 90% better.
I’ve had eczema all my adult life and had resigned myself to managing it with steroid creams. I would have done this forever had my father-in-law not suggested that acupuncture could help. I was quite skeptical, knowing how stubborn this skin condition was. I have seen close to a dozen dermatologists over the years, and none of them have ever been able to do anything more than prescribe steroids. Over the counter creams never worked for me.
Pardon the long introduction, but I wanted you to know my situation. That’s why I was surprised and more than pleased to see my eczema improve substantially after receiving acupuncture treatment. After two treatments my then current flare settled down. With continued treatment my chronic patches started to recede. Itching was substantially reduced as well. I now receive what they call maintenance treatment for my eczema, which I will happily do each month.
I researched all of the top acupuncture practices in Raleigh before selecting Raleigh Acupuncture. The doctors there were thoughtful, knowledgeable, and well versed in treating eczema. They delivered on what they promised, to control and substantially resolve my eczema. I highly recommend them.
