Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. As part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), acupuncture aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body. Very thin needles are inserted into these specific points and used to increase or decrease the flow of "chi" or energy in the body bringing it toward optimal balance. Once the needles are placed there is often a feeling of deep relaxation. Acupuncture can be used to treat a multitude of symptoms and conditions such as chronic or acute pain, hormonal imbalance, anxiety, depression, back, neck, shoulder or sciatic pain, fibromyalgia, insomnia and infertility. Acupuncture can be used as a preventative treatment against colds, flus and viruses by boosting the immune system. Many Doctors strongly recommend Acupuncture, such as Dr. Oz.
What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?
Described by THE TIMES as a "viable alternative to cosmetic surgery", the "acupuncture facelift" is the most recent non-invasive procedure designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improving the overall appearance of the skin. Based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, it helps the whole body to look and feel younger by addressing the physical, mental and emotional patterns that cause disease and contribute to the aging process. The use of Acupuncture to slow the visible effects of aging began in China in the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD). In traditional Chinese medicine, it is known as 'Chinese Medical Cosmetology'. Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture showed that of 300 test cases who received facial rejuvenation, 90% showed results after one course of treatments.Fine needles are placed at a variety of acupuncture points on the face, neck and around the eyes to stimulate the body's natural energies, or Qi.
Since muscle groups are addressed as well the acupuncture points, the face lifts itself, via the acupuncture points, through the muscles' toning and tightening action. The needles also stimulate blood and circulation, which improves facial colour.
What is Cupping Therapy?
This traditional, time -honoured treatment remains favoured by millions of people worldwide because it is safe, comfortable and remarkably effective for many health disorders. Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, increase blood circulation, lighten stretch marks and improve varicose veins. Cupping is the best deep tissue massage available as well as lymphatic drainage due to its "negative pressure" effects.Benefits to Clients:
