Psoriasis in Oriental medicine is considered a Blood Heat disorder. This is a metaphor indicating that an inflammatory process is taking place in the bloodstream, manifesting as red, itchy, scaly patches on the skin. Thus, acupuncture points that have cooling properties and that work at the level of blood are prescribed. Ask your acupuncturist about the cooling and blood clearing points, especially if you frequently feel hot, or prefer cold weather, or the psoriasis gets worse with hot weather or spicy food.
