We practice multiple disciplines of Traditional Chinese Medicine to ensure each patient receives a complete and holistic treatment. Acupuncture involves pricking the skin or tissues with small surgical grade stainless steel needles. Acupuncture needles range is size but approximately 40 (40- gauge) acupuncture needles fit into one 18- gauge hypodermic needle. The insertion of the needles in specific points on the body can stimulate the nervous, immune and endocrine systems to help alleviate pain and to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions. Originating in ancient China, acupuncture is now widely practiced in the West.
Electro-Acupuncture is a form of acupuncture where a small electric current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. This practice is said to augment the use of regular acupuncture. This modality is particularly effective for treating musculoskeletal pain and tension.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Looking for a way to fight father time with out the use of surgery or synthetic injectables?
Facial acupuncture is a safe, gentle and effective way to combat signs of aging. As we age the muscles in our face begin to lose tone and mass, this can cause sagging and wrinkling. Facial acupuncture can stimulate the facial muscles, giving the face a more refreshed, youthful appearance. The needles stimulate blood flow and also stimulate the natural production of collagen via the micro traumas caused by the insertion of the needles into the facial skin. The needles are hair thin and inserted gently around the face, neck and scalp.
In your series of facial rejuvenation treatments we also address full body wellness. During your treatment you should feel deeply relaxed before the needles are inserted into the face. During your series of treatments you may also feel added benefits like improved sleep, mood, digestion and overall wellbeing.
A series of 12 treatments is recommended weekly or bi-weekly. This gives the allotted time for collagen production, and is shown to yield the best results. Maintenance is then recommended to maintain the results of the treatment. Frequency of maintenance is unique to each patient. Each treatment is 90 minutes in duration. Including facial cupping and gua sha. You may see results just after your first treatment, but the results are cumulative. Each treatment building on the last.
