Facial rejuvenation is an example of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine used for modern purposes. Since the design of the slim needle, as opposed to the ones used thousands of years ago, the face can be acupunctured and have amazing results. By stimulating blood flow to the face, collagen and elastin are activated leading to a more youthful appearance.
Also, the face is a microsystem of the body. This means many organ systems can be regulated and benefited through the use of facial points.
When people come in for the Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation treatments, the body is treated as well. This improves circulation while reminding the body how to nourish itself from within, leading to healthier skin.
Digestion, for example, is often improved with a facial rejuvenation session. Many of the points used are located in our "problem areas" (crows feet, smile lines, forehead crease, etc.). These problem areas tend to be related to the digestive system organs: Stomach, Spleen, Colon, Gall Bladder. So while you receive a relaxing treatment for beauty, your body actually takes advantage and thrives during this session as well. Happy gut = happy skin = beauty and health inside and out.
