Cosmetic & Anti-Aging Acupuncture
Natural Alternatives To Beauty
What truly makes cosmetic acupuncture unique is that, cosmetic acupuncture is the only anti-aging procedure that will improve your overall health. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a non-surgical treatment which involves the insertion of hair-thin disposable needles into the groups of designated acupuncture points on the face and body. Due to its anti-aging effect, cosmetic acupuncture has gained popularity in the last few years especially on the East coast and Hollywood. It was previously a beauty secret for the rich and famous.
Now, everyone can benefit. The effects of cosmetic acupuncture can vary, but may include a more even, glowing complexion, a decrease in fine lines and softening of wrinkles, diminished puffiness around the eyes, and a general lifting of the face, including jowls.
In fact, in a 1996 study reported by the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture, 90% of the 300 participants reported improvements, such as better complexion, diminished lines and wrinkles, and feeling rejuvenated overall.
In addition, many people report other health benefits from cosmetic acupuncture, such as improved digestion, decreased stress, less menstrual discomfort, fewer hot flashes, decreased acne breakouts, and less TMJ symptoms, such as teeth grinding.

Diet and digestion are one of the most important, and most frequently overlooked components of skincare. According to Chinese Medicine, what you eat nourishes the face, and without adequate nutrients and good digestion, your skin can’t look its best.The link between digestion and our appearance is almost direct. Energy and blood, which is brought up to the face during cosmetic acupuncture, is produced by the food we eat. If our diet or digestion is poor, then there is not as much energy and blood to work with. Cosmetic Acupuncture works holistically, both on one’s physical appearance and on the underlying factors that affect a healthy and glowing complexion.
A typical course of treatment consists of a sequence of 10-12 sessions twice every week. Your skin will feel rejuvenated from the first treatment; visible results appear within the first few treatment sessions. One-off treatments are often used by clients to achieve that bright, healthy glow for special occasions.

Facial cupping is a safe, relaxing and remarkably effective treatment for health and beauty and is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine. Women in China have been utilizing these remarkable facial cupping techniques for rejuvenation and maintenance for thousands of years.
During a facial cupping treatment, small suction cups are used to create a gentle vacuum to lift the skin and other facial tissue. Lifting the facial tissue activates the lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins, cellular waste and excess fluid in the face and neck. Rigid muscle tissue in the face and neck is easily massaged with facial cupping. Lines and wrinkles will plump and any scar tissue will soften after the treatment. The drainage of stagnant fluids from reservoir areas will reduce edema and chronic puffiness. The muscles of the face benefit greatly from the reduction of tension and tightness, releasing expression lines and loosening rigid muscle tissue. In addition to its beautifying effects, facial cupping can provide significant therapeutic results for symptoms related to sinus infections, inflammation, edema and those suffering with TMJ disorders.
Combinations of pure Chinese herb powder blended with organic essential oil are applied to your face to hydrate and nourish the skin, encourage lymphatic flow, and stimulate collagen production. The ingredients in this mixture include may oyster shell, mulberry, ginseng roots and pearl powder. Each formulation is created specific for your skin type.
