Portland Holistic Dermatology | Traditional Chinese herbal medicine for skin conditions

In addition to medical and cosmetic acupuncture I specialize in the treatment of skin conditions with holistic, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) dermatology. My approach integrates principles of functional medicine and current research in the pharmacology of herbs and botanical extracts. 


There is an internal, systemic process underlying many common skin conditions. Western dermatological approaches are strong but ineffective or unsafe for many individuals. By finding and treating the root cause, we can clear the skin and improve overall health. Holistic dermatology treatment is safe with minimal or no side effects.

Some conditions can be completely cured with TCM dermatology while others can be managed effectively or brought to remission. It’s helpful if you’ve been diagnosed by a dermatologist, but it’s not always necessary for holistic treatment. 


If you or someone you know is suffering with a skin condition and would like to discuss treatment options, I encourage you to schedule a free consultation. I will happily share my experience and discuss what you can expect if we work together.
