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. Based on Dr. Choi's experience, 80% of patients with skin disorders also suffer from depression, anxiety, insomnia, digestive and respiratory problems as well. Acupuncture & herbal therapy provide a natural alternative to alleviate the symptoms of dermatological issues by treating the root cause of the problem.

Taking a non-steroidal, chemical-free approach to treat skin conditions, we offer a customized treatment varying according to each person’s condition. Traditional Herbal Medicine is recommended as the primary treatment for skin problems; however, acupuncture may also be used as needed. Our non-steroidal treatment approach helps to maximize your immune system's ability to fight the disease and regain optimum health through a safe, natural healing process. Herbal medicine helps to resolve not only the skin condition but ultimately balance the whole body's function promoting healthy digestion, stable emotions and renewed vitality.
