acupunture2Acupuncture in a complete system of health care that has been in use for 2,000 years in China. It is the primary approach to healthcare for more than 1/3 of the world's population today and is extremely safe and effective.

The art and science of acupuncture is based on an energetic understanding of the body. The energy, called qi, seen as the animating force of life and is said to flow along particular pathways, called meridians. Illness on any level, including the level of the body, mind/emotions and spirit is understood to be the result of an obstruction or harmony in the flow of qi through the meridians. In acupuncture we use very fine needles to regulate and harmonize this flow.

In 1980, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a list of 43 types of pathologist which can be effectively treated with acupuncture. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine sterilized needles, disposable and never re-used, into the body surface at strategic points. The doctor will leave the needles in place for about thirty minutes or more. The use of needles is virtually painless.

Acupuncture can help a person to heal their body, mind, spirit and to become more healthy and effective in their lives.

Acupuncture Face Lift

Acupuncture face lifts have been growing in popularity due to their potential nature of bring back a youthful appearance to a person face whilst avoiding all possible risks and pains of a face lift operation through conventional plastic surgery.

Acupuncture face lifts also tend to have no negative side effects unlike the more common face lift operations that can leave your face looking puffy, burned, stretched and banded. A person's facial character will still be present and not effected through acupuncture either. The acupuncture face lift circulation to the individuals face encouraging collagen product for improved muscle tone and elasticity which is what prevents wrinkles from forming on the face.

Some results you should expect to experience from acupuncture face lifts are:

  • Skin will be more fair and delicate
  • A decrease of wrinkles
  • Fine lines will fade and deep lines reduce
  • Shagginess will also reduce
  • Fatigued eyelids will lift up
  • Age spots will clear and reduce
  • A general rejuvenation all over, not on your face

"Having 30 tiny needles inserted into your face is a scary prospect. I wince each time my therapist, Linda, inserts a needle but find the biggest challenge is lying still for 20 minutes with them sticking out of my face. The idea is that the needles 'fake' an incision, which encourages blood to rush to the site to heal it. This brings new blood, nutrients and oxygen to the surrounding area and should eventually stimulate the production of collagen. Since acupuncture is alleged to treat a variety of health problems as well, Linda treated me for tiredness and headaches, too. You need a few treatments (six to 12, depending on the condition of your skin) so one wasn't enough to see a dramatic difference. My skin did look firmer afterwards and if you're scared of botox then an acupuncturist might be worth a go. Just don't expect results overnight."
