    What is Yin Yang Dermatology?

    The name Yin Yang Dermatology refers to the Chinese herbs that lay the foundation of our practice, and also refers to our overarching philosophy of holistic dermatology. In Chinese medicine, “Yin” and “Yang” describe opposites that together form a whole.

  • Chinese herbs, in raw and packaged form.

    In our practice, we combine the rich and historic teachings of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with modern botanical research on plants, extracts, and healing oils from around the world to optimize results for many different skin conditions.
