Acupuncture is based on the ancient Chinese theory
that there is a vital energy called Qi (pronounced chee) inherent in all living things. Qi circulates throughout the
body along specific pathways called meridians. Each meridian is associated
with a particular physiological system and internal organ. When energy flows
freely through these pathways, health is maintained. Illness or pain result
when the flow of energy in the
pathways becomes obstructed, deficient, excessive, or imbalanced.
Acupuncture needles are inserted to stimulate appropriate points along these meridians,
regulating Qi and helping to restore the body’s natural healing ability. Fine, sterilized, single-use needles are used.They bear no resemblance
to the needles used when receiving an injection. Most patients
find acupuncture to be very relaxing and many fall asleep during the treatment.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Before you consider toxic injections or invasive cosmetic procedures, explore the benefit of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. It is a chemical free, non-invasive way to reduce wrinkles, firm skin, and conceal signs of aging. This refined technique can diminish bags, lift drooping eyelids, eliminate puffiness, clear acne, enhance definition of the jaw
line, and brighten the complexion. It is much more then a cosmetic procedure, it is a whole
body rejuvenation and a revitalization process. It helps the whole body
look and feel younger by addressing the physical, mental and emotional
patterns that cause disease and contribute to the aging process.
Generally, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture consists of 10-12 treatments. The
effects become most noticeable and lasting on or about the seventh
session. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her
condition and lifestyle prior to treatment. Following the initial
course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results for
five to ten years. Studies show that among 300 cases treated with facial acupuncture, 90%
had beneficial results with only one course of treatment. (International
Journal of Clinical Acupuncture, 1996).
