Constitutional Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a safe, painless and effective treatment for rejuvenating the face as well as the whole body. Acupuncture that focuses on the face is not separate from that which addresses the well-being of the body. If one examines meridian flow, it can be observed that “all Yang channels pass through the head, and that the 365 connecting vessels all rise to the head”. It therefore makes sense that facial rejuvenation acupuncture does benefit the entire system.
This protocol combines treatment for your internal and external body, addressing overall health, while promoting longevity, a vibrant appearance and the increased sense of well-being associated with an acupuncture treatment.
Benefits include, but are not limited to:
tightening pores, brightening eyes, eliminating fine lines and diminishing larger wrinkles, reducing double chin and drooping eyelids, improving collagen production & muscle tone, promoting blood & lymph circulation, improving acne, helping gyn & menopausal issues, helping headaches, edema, puffiness, toothache, benefitting eyes, ear, brain, helping insomnia, depression, self-esteem, reducing stress, and promoting total health and well-being.
How often should I get treatments?

Effects included: improvement in skin texture, increased elasticity, brightening of facial complexion reduction of wrinkles, smoothing of fine lines and an overall feeling of rejuvenation.
