Chinese medicine treats acne holistically. Hormonal imbalances are the cause of acne but a poor diet, stress and alcohol can trigger even more internal imbalance and worsen the condition.


At Acuhealth clinic our qualified Chinese practitioner treats acne with acupuncture in Manchester. A good Chinese practitioner uses acupuncture for acne but also cupping, Chinese herbs as well as gives nutritional advice based on Chinese Medicine’s 8 principles.

Chinese Medicine perceives the acne as a damp-heat toxin in the body. The aim of acupuncture treatment is to clear the heat, drain the dampness and soothe energy flow caused by stress in order to justify the hormone dysfunction to reduce redness and clear the oily skin.


At Acuhealth clinic we also offer acupuncture for hormonal acne. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help with hormonal imbalance which is the trigger of hormonal acne. When a hormonal shift occurs there is an overproduction of cells and oil and bacteria appears under the skin. This will result into inflammation and in the end acne will appear.

Hormonal imbalance can be the result of a poor diet, stress, sleep deprivation, etc. and it can affect your kidney, heart, liver and other organs. With our acupuncture treatment in Manchester we can re-establish your body energy and blood flow lessening the symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
