Benefits of facial acupuncture

Applying the ancient technique of acupuncture to the face improves blood circulation, rejuvenates and nourishes the skin, and stimulates the natural collagen production in order to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging or dull skin. This modern use of acupuncture enhances both your physical appearance as well as your overall health, giving you a natural glow that radiates from deep within.

The needles I use for the face are even smaller than those used for the body, thus creating a virtually pain-free experience. Points are chosen based on individual concerns in addition to a few body points in order to further encourage the flow of blood and energy. Sure beats botox and fillers!

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture begins with gently cleansing the face to remove dirt, oil, and makeup while opening the pores with a warm towel. I then apply castor and frankincense oil to hydrate the skin, eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, reduce any swelling or inflammation, increase circulation, and cleanse the face to treat acne or blemishes. Using a jade gua sha tool to gently massage the face, we bring any heat or tension that may be trapped in the facial muscles to the surface where it then can be expelled out of the body. This generates a clear, bright complexion. Cupping techniques are applied to gently plump the skin and awaken the collagen production, reducing fine lines or wrinkles. Next, acupuncture needles are carefully placed where needed to continue the benefits while allowing you to slip into a deep relaxed state. Once the needles are pulled, a light serum and eye cream consisting of natural ingredients are lightly applied and followed by a cooling jade roller, waking up the skin and ultimately sending you out into your day with radiance and rejuvenation.
