Skin Disorders

Before receiving his license as an acupuncturist, Dr. Min Choi has practiced as a dermatologist in Beijing Tongrentang Hospital for a decade, treating numerous patients with some of the most challenging skin conditions.

This reaction manifests in the form of coughing, wheezing and sneezing, and sometimes asthma.

Acupuncture points stimulate the nervous system to activate bioactive chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system. Some of the physiological effects observed throughout the body include increased circulation, decreased inflammation, relief from pain and muscle spasms, and increased blood cell production, which stimulates the immune system.
