Often dismissed as an insignificant problem that will go away with time, severe acne can result not only in tissue scarring, but may contribute to lower self-esteem, anxiety and depression.
Oily skin, painful cysts, and other symptoms may resist mainstream treatments (such as topical medications, oral medications, and steroid injection), which do not address the root causes of acne.
At Well Being Dublin the aim of treatments with Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine and Naturopathy is to calm and clear the skin and address the root cause of Acne with a personalized treatment plan to bring the body back into balance.
The cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is what we call “pattern differentiation.” As informed by this diagnostic framework, Anne don’t simply treat named diseases, she treats patterns. Patterns are groups of signs and symptoms, and the patterns identified in Chinese medicine have been used to help billions of people for thousands of years.
Compared to conventional approaches to mental health, Traditional Chinese Medicine has a unique approach to Acne.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, conditions such as acne could reflect as both physical and mental disharmony within the individual and are reflective of an individual “Pattern of Disharmony”.
No matter if a client is attending for acupuncture, herbal medicine or naturopathy, a treatment plan will be based on a personalised in-depth consultation to first evaluate causality and identity this “Pattern”.
The initial consultation takes account of all possible contributions or influences with regards to Acne (e.g. hormonal status, stressors, environmental factors, diet and lifestyle factors family history, etc.).
A personalized treatment plan will be put in place then to reducing acute symptoms and restore equilibrium to the body; to improve overall mental health and overall wellness.
That’s considering the principle that T.C.M and holistic medicine in general is a mind/body medicine which aims to optimise the health and wellbeing of the whole person.
