Raleigh Acupuncture Eczema Treatment
Watch the video to learn how we treat eczema with acupuncture.
How It Works
We have developed a powerful eczema treatment to resolve and manage eczema. While every treatment is custom-made for the patient’s condition, we generally focus on the following things. First, we use acupuncture points that clear heat from the skin. Eczema almost always involves heat at the skin level, which damages the skin. Clearing heat from the skin resolves this problem, taking the fire out of eczema and allowing the body to heal itself.
Second, we use points to moisten the skin for people with “dry type” eczema. In acupuncture terms, the acupoints promote the body to generate more moisture for the skin, healing dryness from within. The Raleigh Acupuncture eczema treatment prompts the body to moisturize itself from the inside on an ongoing basis.
Third, some people have a “damp type” of eczema. This condition involves skin that weeps with moisture. For these cases, we address and resolve the internal dampness. Dampness and internal heat always cause trouble for the skin. Managing these issues brings impressive relief.
Recent Eczema Acupuncture Case
We recently treated a woman who had eczema patches on her lower legs that were itchy and unsightly. Cortisone cream helped, but she did not like relying on steroids. Her eczema was dry, red, and itchy, so treatments focused on resolving her internal heat. Locally, we placed tiny needles around the most stubborn eczema patches. This combination of systemic and local therapy cleared up the skin on her legs in six treatments.
The Stress Factor
We know that STRESS makes all health conditions worse. It is no different when dealing with eczema. The Raleigh Acupuncture eczema treatment includes points to help manage your stress. But how?
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 flows, you are much less susceptible to feeling stress. When stress impacts you less, your eczema will flare less.
What To Expect
All needles are sterile, single-use, and hair-thin. Treatments are relaxing – many patients fall asleep during their sessions. Afterward, you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

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.
