What is it?
Dating back as far as the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD), Facial Rejuvenation
Acupuncture has helped restore the natural beauty from within. This time
honored technique has gained more popularity in recent years in light of the
increasing demand for natural, holistic alternatives. In comparison with often
dangerous surgical procedures, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a
non-evasive, safe and effective way to reduce the signs of aging.
How does it work?
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture addresses the underlying imbalances that
may be contributing to your aging process. According to the holistic
approach of Chinese Medicine, wrinkles begin internally from a weakness
and imbalance of energy, or qi. Qi circulates through the body within
pathways called meridians. As it flows through these meridians, qi provides
nourishment, support, warmth and energy to every cell, tissue and muscle,
thereby enhancing the “lift” of the face.
Tiny acupuncture needles are placed just beneath the skin of the face,
encouraging qi and blood to flow upward and rise to the surface. The result
is a reduction of fine lines and a healthy glow. Additional acupuncture
needles are also placed strategically in other areas of the body that may
include the arms, legs, abdomen, ears, hands and feet in order to improve
your overall health and bring out your inner radiance.

What are the benefits?

How many sessions are needed?
A typical series consists of 10 sessions, over a course of five weeks. While
effects are often evident as soon as the first or second session, they
become more noticeable and lasting on or about the sixth session. After the
initial series, maintenance sessions can prolong your results.
Does it really work?
Yes. However, in dealing with weight loss and control, we first have to deal
with the key factors that lead to the problem. Factors such as diet,
metabolism, exercise, genetic disposition and your attitude must be
addressed. To clear the misconception, acupuncture is not a wonder cure in
the treatment of weight control. However, acupuncture is effective in making
it easier to lose and maintain that loss if the
patient is willing to change.
How does it work?
Acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points on the body and in the
ear to release endorphins. It has a calming and relaxing effect that makes it
easier to deal with stress, frustration and anxiety which often trigger
overeating and binging behaviors. The acupuncturist may use
to increase the endorphin release and stimulate the
metabolism. The needles would be kept in place for around twenty to thirty
minutes and after the needles are removed,
ear tacks with adhesive on
them are often placed to continue the stimulation between treatments. When
the patient feels an urge to eat, s/he applies mild pressure to the point or
rubs it back and forth for about 20 seconds. This type of acupressure
stimulates the point, causing a mild endorphin release, helping them to
regain their willpower. And depending on the patients, certain herbs may
also be prescribed. Acupuncture is a
safe and effective method in
controlling and losing weight. However, the patient must be willing to
incorporate proper diet and exercise in combination with the acupuncture
treatments to be successful.
