Acupuncture

Acupuncture originates from China and has been practiced for thousands of years before becaming popular during the second half of the twentieth century in the United States. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles, to various depths through the patient's skin, at specific points on the body. These points are located along 14 main paths, called channels or meridians, which cover the body. Based on the concept that a vital energy called Qi (“chee”) travels along these pathways, illness or pain occurs when this energy flow is blocked or weakened. Stimulating acupuncture points along the meridian restores the balance in the body, helping to relieve symptoms and promote wellness.

 

Cosmetic Acupuncture & Facial Rejuvenation 

Facial Acupuncture is an organic process of healing and nourishment for the face that builds over a series of sessions. The treatments are based on Chinese Medicine Principles, so in addition to the acupuncture, you should expect some coaching about at-home techniques and dietary changes. Facial Rejuvenation and Cosmetic Acupuncture provides a substantial boost to the appearance of the face while also building a better foundation for facial youthfulness and that ‘feel great’ glow. It is suitable for men and women who either want to work with an ‘Age Defence’ principle to aging.

 

The range of treatments work on different levels some of which helps to

- create collagen naturally

- bring nourishment back to the face

- clear wrinkles, fine lines, crows’ feet

- lift sagging skin

 

 

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine, also called botanical medicine or phytomedicine, refers to using a plant's seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for medicinal purposes. Herbal medicine is used to treat many conditions, that a patient might seek out treatment from their primary care, and it is becoming more mainstream. For example, one study found that 90% of arthritic patients use alternative therapies, such as herbal medicine. Although herbal medicine is well received by patients due to minimal side effects with positive outcomes, Herbal supplements are best taken under the guidance of a trained health care provider.

 

Cupping

Cupping is a technique used in Traditional Chinese Medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin to mobilize blood flow in order to promote healing.

 

Gua Sha

Gua sha is a traditional Chinese medical treatment in which the skin is scraped to produce light bruising. Gua sha releases unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow to promote healing. Gua sha is sometimes referred to as "spooning" or "coining" by English speakers.
