Facial acupuncture can be used for cosmetic or rejuvenating purposes as well! With cosmetic acupuncture as part of your beauty regimen, you can kiss fine lines goodbye! Facial acupuncture needles create microtraumas in the skin which tells the skin to go into repair mode, aiding in the production of collagen. Our bodies natural production of collagen decreases about 1% every year after the age of 25. Facial acupuncture can relax facial muscles, reduce fine lines and calm inflammation. Don't freeze your face with Botox, try an acu-facial!
Another reason why facial acupuncture is amazing is because it improves facial blood circulation and relaxes muscles that may be too tight causing lines and wrinkles. Increased blood circulation can dramatically improve the look of your skin by improving your complexion and giving you a natural glow! Gua sha, facial massages, jade rolling are also applications that you can experience during an acu-facial session! Book an appointment here
Acupuncture & Cupping
This an ancient system of complementary medicine that has been keeping people healthy for over 2,500 years.
It involves gentle insertion of very thin filiform needles at key points in the body. These points are part of the body's fascial "map" that connects our organs and acts like a messenger system. It can alter brain chemistry and stimulate internal responses and hormone regulations.
Cupping involves myofascial decompression and suction by using heat to apply glas cups to the skin. This creates negative pressure on tissue and muscles. Blood flow is the body’s way of naturally healing. Cupping helps the body increase blood flow. Both acupuncture and cupping increase circulation to reduce inflammation and more.
