Multidisciplinary Care for
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)

Hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating, occurs when the nerve that controls sweating—the sympathetic nerve—is oversensitive and causes the overproduction of sweat.

We provide a holistic approach to treating hyperhidrosis and other dysautonomia conditions, disorders in the autonomic nervous system (ANS), through innovative genetic research and multiple treatment options for patients to restore their confidence.
