Acupuncture stimulates the body's natural healing response, reduces muscle tension, alleviates pain, reduces stress, promotes relaxation, modulates the immune response, and balances hormones.
Facial acupuncture increases blood circulation and stimulates collagen and elastin production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten, lift, and give your face that healthy youthful glow!
In addition to its cosmetic benefits, facial acupuncture can also be used to treat Bell's Palsy & sinus & jaw conditions.
Cupping therapy is a traditional technique. Glass or silicone cups are applied to the skin and create a gentle suction which lifts the skin and soft tissue layers to reduce muscle tension, increase circulation, and promote detoxification.
It promotes lymphatic drainage and can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Traditional herbal medicine can be used on its own or in conjugation with your acupuncture treatments. Herbal formulas consist of combinations of herbs that work to restore balance, boost vitality, and can help with pain, sleep, fertility, mental health, stress management, and more!
Microneedling increases cell turnover and the production of collagen in order to reduce wrinkles, and make the skin smoother, firmer and more toned. It may also be used to treat scarring and areas of hyperpigmentation. Microneedling can also be used on the scalp to promote hair growth.
