Cosmetic acupuncture or Chinese Facial Rejuvenation dates back to 770BC. In China, health and beauty treatments are closely related as in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners treat the whole body – not just isolated parts .
Cosmetic acupuncture is a wonderful holistic, natural alternative to surgical interventions and of course, the fashionable botox injections. This extremely relaxing approach to beauty aims not only to reduce the visible signs of aging but to also improve the overall functioning of the body.
Very fine needles are paced around and near your wrinkles to encourage the microcirculation to you skin to improve.
Are you scared by the thought of having needles placed in your face? Do you pass out when someone comes at you with a hypodermic needle? Are you the one not in the line to get a tattoo? Well, Laser Acupuncture may be the answer.
Laser Acupuncture allows us to do all the things we would do with the Acupuncture needles, without you feeling like you want to faint. There are some situations (such as deep pain) where I much prefer to use needles, but for the face, the Laser works beautifully.
Tuina massage is a form of Chinese massage which everyone simply adores. It involves stimulation of the acupuncture channels as well as certain pressure points on the face. This form of massage is very light but prepares the face for further stimulation of the local circulation and lymphatic system.
The Jade Roller is one of the most enjoyable experiences for you and your face. Jade is revered in China where it is considered to be the Imperial Gem.
The relaxing quality of the Jade Roller ensures good circulation of ‘qi’(energy) and blood to the face and neck.
