Acupuncture has its origins dating back thousands of years. Acupuncture balances the energy flow (Qi) throughout the body which is essential for health. During the past decade, the medical community has begun to embrace alternative treatments as many studies have shown acupuncture to be effective in treating pain, allergies, palliative care with cancer patients for nausea and weakness, and many types of chronic illnesses.
Rejuvenate your skin with cosmetic acupuncture.
Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment that involves using acupuncture to improve fine lines and wrinkles and fight the aging process. It can increase collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to help reduce fine lines and improve texture and tone. This treatment also includes facial gua sha or facial cupping, whichever the acupuncturist finds more appropriate.
New patient acupuncture appointments are scheduled for 90 minutes. Your acupuncturist will go over your medical history, lifestyle, chief complaints and reason for your visit. Your session may also include cupping, gua sha, or even ear seeds. Supplements or herbs may also be suggested by your acupuncturist depending on your needs.
Returning patient acupuncture appointments are scheduled for 45 minutes. Visits may also include cupping, gua sha, or ear seeds along with acupuncture.
