About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is over 2,500 years old and is among the oldest healing practices in the world. As part of Chinese Medicine, acupuncture aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body, called acupuncture points. By inserting sterile, hair thin, disposable needles the acupuncture points are stimulated. This restores the natural balance and smooth flow of Qi (energy) through the body, setting the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health. Our bodies are constantly seeking homeostasis or a state of balance. Acupuncture and herbal therapy can assist the body in its ongoing journey towards achieving this state of harmony and optimum health.

Auricular Therapy, or ear acupuncture, is a form of alternative medicine based on the idea that the ear is a microsystem of the entire body represented on the auricle, the outer portion of the ear. Ailments of the entire body are assumed to be treatable by stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively.

This type of treatment is helpful for a variety of conditions:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • addictions
  • pain anywhere in the body
  • stress
  • insomnia
  • lowering blood pressure
  • helps organ function
  • regulates hormones
  • weight loss

Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses the gentle but firm pressure of hands (and even feet).

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture / Acupuncture facelift 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 facelifts have even been featured in the mainstream media, such as on ABC Television’s “Good Morning America” and Public Broadcasting System’s “Healthweek.” 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 beauty 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 color, 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 fluidsnourishes 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, color, 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.
