Revitalizing Your Skin with Acupuncture
Retaining a youthful glow and radiance in your skin is not a new idea, women especially have been concerned with this for generations. In China, documentation of these traditions can be traced back thousands of years. Most importantly, acupuncture is a very safe practice, and much less invasive than other options such as botox, chemical peels, or surgery.
Chinese medicine approaches skin care from the inside out – our skin health is directly related to organ health and our overall vitality. When you come in for an acupuncture facial, we will ask you questions about your energy, sleep, diet and stress to get a good picture of how your body functions as a whole.
Then, whisker-thin acupuncture needles are placed on the face and in the scalp to smooth wrinkles, brighten skin tone, and gently lift. It’s almost like having a facelift without surgery. The result is a nourishing, relaxing, full-body experience. A full course of treatment is 12 visits, with monthly visits following to help sustain your benefits.
How does it work? By having a clean diet and healthy lifestyle we promote the body’s natural ability to regenerate and to clear out unwanted toxins. The acupuncture needles work in a number of different ways, one such being by stimulating the body’s own ability to repair the skin.
