After seeing little results from standard Western treatments, many psoriasis sufferers are trying acupuncture—and finding themselves amazed at the results.


Psoriasis can be uncomfortable, stressful, and often painful, and yet Western medicine often does not have a solution for it. Frustrated with the lack of progress, many psoriasis patients have started looking for alternative remedies, and found success in the time-tested methods of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine.
For those who follow the world of acupuncture, it’s no surprise that psoriasis patients have found results in acupuncture treatments. Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition often triggered by stress, and acupuncture has been shown to be highly effective in treating a number of different autoimmune conditions and to be an excellent way to reduce stress.
Acupuncture has also shown its effectiveness in the treatment of psoriatic arthritis, a chronic pain condition. On top of its success rates with autoimmune conditions and stress reduction, acupuncture is also a known powerhouse in the treatment of chronic pain. Psoriatic arthritis patients treated with acupuncture frequently report a reduction in pain and anti-inflammatory effect following treatments.
When performed by a licensed acupuncturist, acupuncture is a promising low-risk option for psoriasis sufferers to try. The holistic approach of traditional Chinese medicine offers an alternative to pain medication and could well be the key to relief for those with psoriasis.

If you’re struggling with psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, or other chronic pain conditions, start your journey to a pain-free life by making an appointment with a licensed acupuncturist.
