Regain Your Natural Glow With Cosmetic Acupuncture
Cosmetic, or, Facial Acupuncture, has been practiced in China since the Sun Dynasty (960AD – 1070AD) with records showing that women of the elite upper classes receiving treatments. Facial acupuncture treatments not only focus on points on the face, but also on points on the arms and legs to help balance any internal disharmonies that may have an effect on the face and complexion.
The Facial Acupuncture treatment is based on the principles of Traditional Oriental Medicine and involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into particular areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk, and legs into specific points that are chosen to have an effect not only in the appearance of the face, but also, on overall health and wellbeing.
“Ageing is a fact of life. Looking your age is not”.
Each course of Cosmetic Acupuncture and advice is formulated for your particular circumstances and following the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine treats you as a whole body, mind and emotions.
A course of treatment generally consists of around 12 – 20 treatments. The effects become most noticeable and lasting on or about sessions 8 – 10. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her condition and lifestyle prior to treatment. Following the initial course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results for five to ten years.
It is often recommended to supplement the Facial Acupuncture programme with Herbal and Nutritional Supplements, a healthy diet along with plenty of fresh air and appropriate exercise.
Many sources suggest that acupuncture has been used for almost 5,000 years to treat a wide range of conditions. Having proven itself with literally billions of people, Acupuncture has survived the test of time. The use of acupuncture in cosmetic treatments, especially in preventing and reducing wrinkles has already attracted great attention in Japan, Hong Kong, and Sweden. The effectiveness of Acupuncture on improving overall health has been well documented over the last 30 years.
A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% noticed marked effects with one course of treatment.
For thousands of years, the Chinese have known that beauty comes from the inside. At least as early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD-1270AD) Acupuncture rejuvenation practices were employed for the Empress and the Emperor’s concubines.
Even for those unfamiliar with the principles of Chinese Medicine, it is known that increased circulation helps the body to look and feel better. Common sense would tell us that treating the underlying cause of why someone is ageing is preferable to masking the outward symptoms and allowing further decline and dysfunction to continue within the body.
