Many people are interested in anti-aging treatments, and why not? While I have always believed that it’s what’s inside that really counts, it’s also wise to stay healthy and stay in shape for as long as possible. This includes taking care of our teeth, our skin, staying fit and toned, and keeping the body in balance.
Did you know that organ imbalances reveal themselves on the skin? Click here to see an example of a map of the face that indicates the regions and which organs they correspond to.
Any blemishes, discolourations, lack of tone, lines or swelling in these regions can point to underlying stresses in certain organs. This is why I recommend cosmetic acupuncture as an ideal anti-aging treatment. While the customized treatment addresses lines, sagging, puffiness and blemishes, it also simultaneously supports the restoration of these underlying imbalances so you’re getting a facial treatment and full-body treatment all in one!
Many people are becoming aware of the potential dangers of plastic surgery, botox and other injection-based interventions as well as the risk of permanently changing the appearance of the face in an undesirable way.
Using the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a well-established model of health and healing developed over 2000 years ago, we assess your unique organ imbalances and choose acupuncture points to address the underlying imbalances which impact the face as well as the rest of the body.
Acupuncture offers a safe and effective alternative that benefits the entire body, and allows you to look like you, only more youthful and vibrant!
Benefits of cosmetic acupuncture:
Safe & Effective:
There are no undesirable side-effects or longterm health risks associated with the acupuncture treatments. No toxins, infectious agents or foreign materials are involved.
- tones the muscles, creating tighter contours
- circulates blood and lymph, improving puffiness and discolouration
- makes lines or wrinkles more shallow, reducing and potentially eliminating their appearance
- addresses underlying organ imbalances which contribute to the appearance of discolouration and blemishes
Retain your natural appearance:
No risk of permanently changing your face in an undesirable way.
A treatment for the entire body:
Underlying organ imbalances are also treated, so clients will often report, for example, that their digestion, anxiety and/or sleep has improved while undergoing cosmetic acupuncture treatment. BONUS: As an N.D., I can also offer diet or lifestyle recommendations which can help address the underlying imbalances contributing to the aging process.
My typical 75 minute cosmetic acupuncture treatment session includes:
-customized body-acupuncture treatment
-cleansing, exfoliation and moisturizing of the face
-facial acupressure massage
-customized facial-acupuncture treatment
-take-home self-care recommendations to maximize treatment effects
We typically recommend a series of weekly sessions for a minimum of 6-10 treatments to achieve full benefits which will last up to a year, followed by single “tune-up” sessions once every 3-6 months to maintain the effects.
If you are new to my practice, the first visit will include an initial health intake and physical exam as well as the first treatment session.
Love what nature gave you, first! And if you would like a little boost along the way, I’m here for you!
