What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a medical practice that utilizes the insertion of tiny sterilized stainless steel needles into specific points on the body to promote bodily function. The stimulation of these acupoints creates a biochemical, physiological, and psycho-emotional response that has the ability to treat a wide variety of conditions.
The practice of acupuncture is rooted in Taoist philosophy, dating back to over 2,000 years ago. It is an ancient form of healing that centers around the concept of balancing Yin and Yang for health and vitality. The Chinese views the body as having Yin organs (lungs, heart, spleen, pericardium, kidney, and liver) that are mutually supported by their paired Yang organs (large intestine, stomach, triple energizer, gallbladder, and urinary bladder). Each of these organs have a meridian pathway that travels throughout the body, carrying vital substances: blood, lymphatic substances, body fluids, and Qi. Disease arises when the free flow of vital substances become stagnant. Acupuncture can help free the stagnation and restore health.
From a biomedical perspective, recent studies have shown that acupuncture affects the nervous system and boosts the immune system. It stimulates the release of endorphins, decreases inflammation and increases T-cell count.

Facial acupuncture offers a natural, non-invasive method for anti-aging skin care. The insertion of tiny sterilized stainless steel needles causes microtrauma to the skin, which has the affect of stimulating collagen and elastin formation and increases blood flow to nourish the facial tissue. The treatment reduces wrinkle formation, improves skin tone, and brightens the skin's glow.
Mild suction applied to the face gently lifts the skin, resulting in increase of blood circulation and stimulation of collagen formation to the surrounding facial tissue. Movement with the facial cups also promotes fluid metabolism by draining excess fluid into the cervical lymph nodes. This can reduce puffiness of the face and under the eye. By the end of the treatment, you may notice your skin feeling tighter and more toned.
