Skin conditions affect both children and adults and can be chronic, acute or both.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the skin is a reflection of what is going on inside the body as well. Dermatologists and today’s science increasingly support an autoimmune aspect involved with many chronic dermatologic conditions.

At Urban Wellness Acupuncture, herbal remedies are the key method of treatment including acupuncture and other complementary modalities.  Carla is one of only 50 Certified Diplomates of Dr. Mazin Al-Khafagi’s Dermatology Herbal Medicine studies from the U.K., a worldwide leading authority and author for Dermatology in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Auto-Immune and Allergic conditions.
