What About Acupuncture?

Leaf-2gAcupuncture benefits the stress that is often a factor in flare-ups of psoriasis. Many patients find it to be helpful for psoriatic arthritis.

But acupuncture is never the primary treatment for psoriasis. Herbal medicine is the mainstay of treatment for both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis in our clinic.

We work with each patient on a case by case basis to determine the need and potential benefit of acupuncture. Some are treated with acupuncture alongside herbs, but the majority of psoriasis patients we see are treated solely with internal herbs and topical creams and salves.
