Facial Rejuvenation

Facial Rejuvenation is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging and/or to improve the health, quality and glow of one’s skin. Facial Rejuvenation has become one of the most frequently requested services at spas and clinics alike because of its proven effectiveness. The treatment may be comprised of any combination of the following techniques: microneedling, acupuncture/acupressure, cupping, Gua Sha, facial Tuina (refer to the TCM Acupuncture tab for more details on these modalities). These techniques increase circulation to the face and stimulates collagen and elastin production, which fills out lines and gives firmness to the skin to produce a healthy, glowing complexion.  Natural products and herbal applications are applied to nourish the face as part of the treatment. 
For clients who don’t want or need cosmetic surgery, facial rejuvenation therapy is an appealing alternative. These techniques, while very trendy, are actually based on the solid fundamentals of Chinese medicine. Facial rejuvenation is a unique and restorative experience, and one that combines ancient wisdom with modern techniques. 
It is commonly understood amongst professional acupuncturists that a person’s face reflects the health of their internal organs. An TCM acupuncturist will as part of the treatment also provide a basic assessment of the general strengths and weaknesses of the client wellbeing within the context of Traditional Chinese Medicine and provide him or her with an appropriate whole-body balancing treatment as part of the facial rejuvenation service. For this reason, it is vitally important that you seek out a registered TCM acupuncturist with specialized facial rejuvenation training to maximize the benefits and effectiveness of this type of treatment. Facial rejuvenation works equally well for men and women and benefits can be realized in adults of any age.
