Cosmetic Acupuncture

This is your chance to train and offer this very popular and rewarding therapy

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture / Acupuncture face-lift is becoming a more popular, non-surgical method for those who want not only to maintain beauty, radiance and vitality in the face, but also improve their overall health and well being. Acupuncture face-lifts have even been featured in the mainstream media. Studies show that among 300 cases treated with facial acupuncture, 90 % had marked beneficial results with only one course of treatment (International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture, 1996).

Acupuncture for facial rejuvenation is a wonderful, holistic, alternative approach to fighting the aging process.

Increasing the flow of energy, blood and lymph circulation improves the face’s natural, healthy colour, diminishes wrinkles and eliminates fine lines.

Promoting collagen production increases muscle tone and elasticity helping to firm the skin, fill out wrinkles, and reduce bags and sagging.

Stimulating the formation of body fluids nourishes the skin and encourages it to be moister, softer, smoother, and more lustrous. Chinese herbs work excellently in replenishing Yin energy (body fluid), which is extremely beneficial in the prevention and/or improvement of wrinkles resulting from menopause or cigarette smoking.

Healing physical, emotional and spiritual issues to reduce stress and improve overall health and well being. Since the body/mind/spirit are all connected, negative emotions reflect in the face and change the appearance of skin texture, colour, and tension. Acupuncture can eliminate stress and bring out the innate strength, vitality and health. In addition to enhancing skin appearance, most people are pleased to find that their sinus problems, headaches, toothache, TMJ, PMS and menopause have either disappeared or their symptoms are distinctly improved! You will not only look younger but also most certainly feel younger.

Excellent alternative approach without surgery and injection. Acupuncture is far less expensive, more natural, non-invasive and safer than plastic surgery or botox injection’s, and has no side effects, toxicity, inflammation, or recovery time.
