Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
We are excited to announce that facial acupuncture is Back!!
What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?
Facial acupuncture is most commonly known for being the safer alternative to surgery and botox, yet in fact works to internally optimize your health as traditional Acupuncture does while simultaneously enhancing the appearance of your skin and face. It is a powerful Acupuncture treatment option that goes beyond simply maintaining a youthful and clear complexion but also addressing mental, emotional, physical and spiritual balance.
How does it work?
There are many powerful acupuncture points on the face along the energy lines or meridians that connect the body as a whole. From deep within to the external layers and from head to toe there is a matrix of pathways flowing into and communicating with one another. Many of these meridians originate or flow through the head and face directly.
What are the benefits of facial acupuncture with a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner?
The more obvious health benefits are:
- reducing redness and inflammation
- breaking down and reducing the appearance of scar tissue
- minimizing fine lines and wrinkles
- aiding in healing and preventing acne breakouts
- assisting the skin in aging gracefully by nourishing it from the inside out
- stimulating lymphatic drainage
- stimulating the circulatory system
- producing collagen which improves skin’s elasticity.
Less obviously acupuncture or acupressure points on the face have specific energetic qualities that balance the whole being as well as improving the quality and vitality of the skin – creating a facial experience that feels extra luxurious.
Not only will you leave with a youthful glow and appearance from within but whole body effects like mood regulation, overall tension and stress relief, insomnia, nausea and digestive support, menstrual pain reduction – to name a few, may be addressed at the same time!
Who is it for?
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a treatment option that is suited to anyone who has a desire to take care of themselves in a holistic way and cosmetically looking for an alternative to harsh or invasive medical options.
What can I expect?
This is a 60 minute treatment that is tailored to your cosmetic and overall health concerns or needs. As in any session with a Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist we will begin with an assessment, where I determine how I will redirect your internal environment to create the results and shifts you are seeking. We then move on to the treatment which consists of a few body acupuncture needles specific to your needs, many ultra fine facial needles, guasha and or gentle facial cupping, finishing with acupressure massage on your head and or feet.
What if I don’t want needles put in my face or body at all?
No problem, this treatment can be offered without needles altogether and with a focus on acupressure points as well as using guasha and facial cups to obtain many of the benefits listed above.
Will my benefits cover Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?
This is a holistic whole body treatment and your medical benefits will cover it just as it does for regular whole body acupuncture treatments.
