Facial Acupuncture is a safe, painless and effective treatment for renewing the face as well as the whole body. Fine lines may entirely be removed, deeper lines reduced and bags around neck and eyes firmed.
Fine needles are placed at a variety of acupuncture points on the face, neck and around the eyes to stimulate the body’s natural healing properties (Qi). Muscle groups are addressed as well as the acupuncture points. The face tones itself, via the acupuncture muscular motor points, stimulating the muscles’ toning and tightening ability. Facial Acupuncture also stimulates blood and circulation (energy “Qi” & Blood “Xue”), which improves facial color.

The Facial Acupuncture treatment protocol incorporates Chinese herbal masks, poultices and moisturizers. Jade rollers, which enhance blood circulation, remove fine lines and age spots, and prevent premature aging, are used to massage moisturizer into the skin. The ancient empresses of China used jade as a precious stone to be worn, not only around their necks, but also to attract yin and nourishment into their skin. The stone served a double purpose of promoting beauty and for mystical protection.
After the first treatment, one usually observes an increased glow to the complexion, the result of reduced stress and increased Qi and blood flow to the face. The face appears more “open”, there is a clarity in the eyes (“clear spirit” also known as SHEN), and the patient appears and feels more rested; wrinkles start to lessen and the skin appears more toned.
