We’re pleased to offer Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, which is becoming a popular non-surgical way of maintaining facial health and radiance, as well as reducing signs of aging.
What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a spa-like treatment that includes facial acupuncture as well as the application of pampering herbal masks and facial massage. In addition, the patient’s overall health is assessed, and a full body acupuncture treatment is performed in order to address the underlying imbalances that contribute to aging and skin imperfections. Since beauty is not simply skin-deep, and is a reflection of many aspects of health, we can also recommend dietary modifications as well as lifestyle changes, and herbal supplements to create an inside-out program for health and beauty.
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is offered as a single treatment or as a course of therapy with 10 sessions. A course of therapy is recommended for lasting results.
We also offer Lymphatic Drainage Massage by trained specialists to further enhance the treatments for facial rejuvenation.
What are the Benefits?
The benefits of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture are many, and include an increased flow of blood and nutrients to the face. This may promote the production of collagen and elastin, while improving skin elasticity and muscle tone and reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also help define the cheek bones, lift a sagging jaw line and treat the neck. After a course of facial rejuvenation acupuncture skin begins to look smoother and more radiant. On a deeper level, the treatment addresses physical, mental and emotional health that underlies the aging process. Treatments also reduce stress and promote general health and well-being.
As we age various lines, wrinkles, puffiness, bags, or lack of firmness may develop on the face and neck. Often times an emotion that we are unable to fully process, such as worry, sadness, grief, anger, or fear may begin to show itself on the face and cause these signs of aging. Acupuncture facial rejuvenation actually helps us process these stuck emotions and thus free up our vital qi for living our life. On the other hand, techniques like Botox, laser treatment or surgery simply freeze the face so we can’t possibly express and release these pent-up emotions. The Chinese medical approach is truly healing from the inside out to restore youth and vitality. In fact Chinese medicine has a long history of restorative treatments to reestablish and maintain health. We call it ‘nourishing life’ (養生) and it is an important part of Chinese medicine.
