This report describes the case of a patient with essential tremors of the mouth and hands, which were improved by Yeokhan-san treatment.

To relieve the symptoms, Korean medicine treatments, including Yeokhan-san, Ohaeng-Hwa acupuncture, and electronic moxibustion, were performed. To evaluate the effects of the treatments, the visual analog scale and Fahn-Tolosa-Marin clinical rating scale for tremor were used.

After the treatment, the patient's clinical symptoms were improved. The visual analog scale score decreased from 10 to 2 for the hand tremor and from 10 to 1 for the mouth tremor. The Fahn-Tolosa-Marin tremor scores decreased from 3 to 1 for both the hand and mouth tremors.

The present case suggests that Yeokhan-san and Ohaeng-Hwa acupuncture are effective for the treatment of essential tremor.
Key words: essential tremor, herbal medicine, Yeokhan-san, case report
