Here’s how Wikipedia defines itching. Itch (Latin: pruritus) is a sensation that causes the desire or reflex to scratch. Itch has resisted many attempts to classify it as any one type of sensory experience. Modern science has shown that itch has many similarities to pain, and while both are unpleasant sensory experiences, their behavioral response patterns are different. Pain creates a withdrawal reflex, while itch leads to a scratch reflex.
How Acupuncture Treats Itching
Our itching treatment addresses the root issue responsible for itching. If it is caused by heat, the itching treatment resolves the underlying heat. When itching is caused by a skin condition like ECZEMA or hives, the treatment focuses on resolving the underlying skin condition. If it is triggered by an allergic reaction, the itching treatment focuses on relieving the allergic reaction and boosting the patient’s immune system to resist future responses.
When there is no obvious cause, the acupuncture itching treatment taps into the amazing diagnostic ability of Chinese medicine the identify the primary internal imbalances responsible for the itching. By asking specific questions, feeling the pulse and looking at the tongue, we are able to identify internal imbalances that are the trigger for the itching.
So much of modern medicine acts like a band aid, managing symptoms. Acupuncture is unique in that it seeks the root cause of a problem and addresses it as a way to resolve symptoms. This is our strategy with the Raleigh Acupuncture itching treatment – to root it out at the source.
What To Expect
When you come to our office, we will sit down with you and take your history. Then we will review all aspects of your itching condition – how long you have had it, what you have tried in the past to help relieve it, what makes it worse and better. We will then make a Chinese medicine diagnosis as to the root problem responsible for the itching.
Once we understand, from a Chinese medicine perspective, what it causing your itching, we will treat you to resolve that underlying imbalance. And in the process of correcting that imbalance, your itching will be resolved. Unlike topical applications, which last only briefly, the acupuncture itching treatment brings long lasting relief.

What our Clients are Saying
For the past three years I have suffered from whole body itching. I had every type of test imaginable, but doctors found nothing wrong. They put me on antidepressants, but that did not help. I found raleigh acupuncture on the web. I can not describe exactly what they did, but I can tell you that it helped. My itching is so much better. I am very grateful for their work. I feel it’s saved my life.
When I get stressed my arms start to itch. It gets so bad that I can bleed from the scratching. It’s embarrassing and very painful. My cousin told me about acupuncture and I went to Raleigh Acupuncture. They totally helped my itching problem. I can’t believe it. They said in order to help the itching they also had to make me less stressed. Well, they were right. Now I feel less stressed. But even when I do get stressed, my arms don’t itch. This treatment is fantastic. I told my whole family about it. Now they go there for their problems too. Thank you!!
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.
