Cosmetic acupuncture (also known as facial rejuvenation acupuncture,) reduces premature aging naturally without surgical interference and with little pain or side effects. By inserting incredibly fine, disposable sterilized needles into specific points on the face, skin is stimulated creating a healing response from the body including the production of collagen.
Every session begins with a discussion about a lifestyle: sleep and stress, emotions and energy - looking at the internal issues that may be manifesting externally. All cosmetic acupuncture treatments have a holistic approach with additional acupuncture points along the body to address and target the root causes of imbalances.
Results are noticeable after several treatments and typically long-lasting after 10 to 15 weekly treatments.
A 1996 research study report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 98% had marked effects with one course of treatment.
Another research in 2016 by China Medical Cosmetology shows that 160 cases of chloasma patients get cosmetic acupuncture treatment for 1 course of 10 times body and facial acupuncture, with the effective rate at 96.25%.and only facial acupuncture was 82.5%. So both have a very high effective rate.
The key is to Find the River and Direction
Meridian line like a river. When you get a massage or acupuncture, you may always feel some radiate pain. That means you already feel the river.
So Chinese Medicine develops all the maps of rivers.
So for example, if you have neck pain, we use the map, know what river you blocked,
And take a pulse or touch the skin layers can know what direction is blocked. upstream or downstream, So we check up or down， maybe the top of your head, or your mid-back fascial adhesion cause your neck pain.
Also if you have pain for a week, is a new block in the river, we can choose to treat it closer to the pain area
If pain for a long time, we will find a trigger point far away from your pain area, even your hands or feet. when you feel a radiate pain, then the neck pain is much better. Means block removed.
So sometimes your pain it hard to release by directly working on the pain area, If you choose this way to target the root, will be great for your chronic problem
You may feel stomach uncomfortable When you eat too much cold food, beer, ice cream, or cold salad,
Then you can put a cupping on your stomach for a few minutes. Then remove the cupping and feel the skin, should be cold or light sweat around the area. Then put cupping again, if you feel the area is nice and warm. Then you probably stomach pain better.
Because of pain from spasms of the muscles around the stomach, or less circulation. Cupping can draw the ” cold” out, release the spasms and increase circulation in your stomach.
If you always have a stomach issue, see a doctor first. Then can look for belly massage or acupuncture for help. If you use cupping yourself make sure read all the instructions
