Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Having been fully trained with FacialEnhance® UK, I provide Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture works by stimulating the body's own natural healing systems. Treatment incorporates facial points, distal points (points on areas such as the arms and legs) and other techniques such as gua sha (a chinese form of massage) and cupping. The treatments are designed to leave you both looking and feeling good with the added benefit of working on the body's system as a whole, naturally.
What to expect from a Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture appointment
At the first appointment, we will go through a full consultation. This helps me to plan a treatment that is tailored to you and your individual needs. I will take your pulse and have a quick look at your tongue, both of which are key diagnostic tools in Chinese Medicine.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture works by insertion of tiny hair-like needles in points on the face as well as using other points in the body. You are lying down on a treatment couch, fully clothed. It is intricate, delicate work - the needles are tiny - hence the longer appointment time needed. As with traditional acupuncture, the needles are left in for around 20 minutes, during which time you can lie back and relax. After 20 minutes, the needles are carefully removed and any additional treatments, as per your individual diagnosis, are carried out.
