Specialization in TCM Dermatology

Skin conditions had been treated successfully in China for thousands of years with the use of Chinese herbs both internally and externally. This method reaps excellent results even to this day.

Renee is a certified TCM Dermatology specialist.

She has learnt herbs and formulas that are especially effective for different types of skin conditions. In addition, she also learnt the art of making Chinese herbal ointment, tinctures, compresses, solutions, paste, etc., to treat different kinds of skin conditions. Skin conditions often start internally, therefore, it is important to look at one's constitution and determine how to treat accordingly. Lifestyle and diet are also important considerations.

If you have a skin condition and are looking for a more holistic and natural approach to resolve it, Chinese medicine could be your solution. In our clinic, we will discuss extensively about your skin condition and overall health, thereafter, you will receive a customized treatment, which includes acupuncture, an herbal formula to take orally, plus an herbal ointment or tincture. Depending on the condition, compresses and other forms of topical treatment may also be prescribed. You will also be given lifestyle and diet recommendations.

We offer a free 15 minute consultation. Call us at 415.695.4835 to see how we can be of service.
