I’m about to share with you the best kept secret for over 1,000 years. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has been around as early as the Sung Dynasty (960 AD), when Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation techniques were first used on the Chinese Empress. The results of facial rejuvenation acupuncture are: more evenly toned, healthy, youthful looking skin, a clearer complexion, and a more relaxed state of mind. There are no scars, no down time and no side effects (other than feeling more serene).
The ancient Chinese described symptoms and healing as being on the level of the “Body, Mind, and Spirit” and that one is never separate from the other. For example, during my 3 year long intense study of acupuncture, my instructors often said, “treat the spirit and the body and mind will follow.” When looking at a person’s face, we see an imprint of the life they have lived. If a person has worried a lot, they have worry lines on the forehead; if they had a lot of frustration, they have anger lines between the eyebrows; if they laughed a lot, they have laugh lines. Lifestyle, diet, and stress also play a large role in our wrinkles and fine lines. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatment administered at Cloud 9 Acupuncture is administered with the whole patient in mind.
Some of your skin health concerns that can be addressed with Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture are: wrinkle reduction, discolorations, eye bags, dark circles, facial sagging, eyelid drooping, age spots, acne, as well as dry, oily or sensitive skin conditions, healthier hair, and weight loss. At Cloud 9 Acupuncture, you can tailor your Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatment to also focus on body aches and pains, chronic conditions, and weight loss while you are addressing your skin issues.
In 1996 the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that “in 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had (significant) effects with one course of treatment. The documented effects included: improvement of the elasticity of facial muscles, leveling of wrinkles, and overall rejuvenation not confined to face.”
Each Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatment is 90 minutes long and is part of a 12 treatment series (1-2 times per week). Your first session is 90 minutes. The cost of each session is $150.
Maintenance sessions are scheduled according to the individual’s needs after the initial series, with most patients enjoying a facial tune-up session once every 4 weeks. Since the skin completely renews itself every 30 days, a once per month session is recommended for maintenance & optimal results. You may see changes as soon as the first treatment is completed, but each succeeding treatment builds on the last.
Your acupuncturist will use the highest quality, pre-sterilized, one-time use (disposable) acupuncture needles which are gently inserted around the face, neck and scalp. Body points are also used to address underlying causes contributing to the aging process. While your skin is reacting to the subtle stimulation, the treatment is also adjusting the energy throughout your entire body. The treatment finishes with a gentle massage of the face, along with facial exercises designed to further enhance your treatment.
Acupuncture is the ideal natural alternative for addressing health concerns due to its ability to treat the underlying root causes of health symptoms. Using Chinese medicine, which dates back over 5,000 years and is the oldest form of medicine currently practiced in the world, an acupuncturist looks at your symptoms in a very different way than western medicine.
When you go to your medical doctor with a health concern, your doctor may order medical tests such as blood work, an MRI or CAT Scan, or an X-Ray to determine the exact diagnosis in order to give you proper medical treatment. Similarly, during your acupuncture session, your acupuncturist will use Chinese medical diagnostic techniques such as feeling your twelve different acupuncture pulses (on your wrists) and looking at your tongue. Your acupuncturist will then evaluate whether your skin condition (or any other symptom you seek acupuncture treatment for) is caused by what Chinese medicine refers to as stagnation, deficiency or excess in the Lung, Kidney, Liver, Heart, or Spleen Qi (pronounced ‘chee’). Acupuncture treatment plans use acupuncture points to balance the hormones, and treat any excesses or deficiencies. During your session, your acupuncturist will also provide wellness coaching while discussing how your diet, lifestyle and proper use of antioxidants can improve your overall condition and improve your skin.
