Q. How treat for Eczema. What points apply?
A. Eczema, as sufferers know to their cost, can be very difficult to treat, even in western medicine. It is not unusual for someone to have tried a wide range of medications and more complex interventions. Whlle there is no clinical evidence accepted in the west according to the exacting standards required by bodies such as PCTs and NICE, there have been thousands of slightly less rigorous trials in China which seem to show that acupuncture many help to relieve some of the discomfort and symptoms associated with the condition.
As we say in all the answers. there are no specific points for named conditions. Each person is given a unique diagnosis which determines where needles may be applied. In some cases the practitioner might use local points, i.e. near where the problem is located, if they feel that this may be of direct benefit to an acute patch of inflammation.
