Hi guys,

Its been a while since i have posted on here. Mainly cos well, i just got bored and depressed with myself. WEll thats what you get when you have acne for almost 8 years now! bloody hell.

My derm is crap...just thought i get that out, for no reason.

Ok so my cousin has just whats the word, finished a accupuncture course, so she is all professionally qualified and i thought i'd try accupuncture. Im goin for about 10 sessions in the new year, and ill report back here when ive had them done.

So has anyone tried it? Its a completely new way of treating your face guys, no harsh abrasive chemicals and drugs just some painless stimulation of your chi... and the research indicates its very successful after about 8 sessions!!! so by march im hoping big changes

If anyone has any comments please use this to discuss new therapies or alternative therapies!!!

cheers steve.

I think i might try it anyway as its relatively cheap about £25 a session, and i went for laser appraisal and they asked me 400 quid for one session then 200 there after so if i can get like 15 acupuncture treatments and the evidence indicates it should take around 8 session before any improvement i think its worth it.

Plus ive tried all western medication and OTCs now so i think i might try the eastern ones. You never know, and in my experience and knowledge of acne (which is vast given my medical education and specialisation) i know that the 'cure' is different for everyone.

I might as well give it a go, ive spent enough on other things i might as well spend some on this!

I had the kind of accupuncture done where they stick needles close to your spine in the neck, to release energy; they said it might clear acne. no...

I had accupuncture. It did help quite a lot, but it didn't clear me. I had very bad acne at the time, and it reduced it to moderate/mild. I've been pretty much clear since using Dan's BP regimen.

I have been looking into Acupuncture lately.

Acupuncture is not for everyone.

IF you are not paying for the sessions then its worth a try.

But if you are planning on spending money on the sessions then I would first get consulted by someone who really knows their shit cause Acupuncture can be a great form of therapy and can help with active acne but not everyone is a candidate.

It has a lot to do with cleansing out your system.

Sometimes Acne can be related to what’s going on inside ya system, and if blood isnt getting cleansed or your insides are infested from foods which can makes a lot of sense seeing that acne comes from bacteria and bacteria is a form of infestation. Or it could be genes or just inheritance or skin type.

Well if it is just a phase due to a diet change or hormones or something along hose lines acupuncture can help but you must do things to help increase its chances of working.
