Acupuncture 

What is acupuncture 

Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine, filiform needles through the skin at specific points on the body with the intention of manipulating Qi. The filiform needles are solid, as opposed to the hollow hypodermic needles most people are familiar with.

The acupuncurist will insert needles into a person's body with the aim of balancing their energy.

This this calming ,  can help boost wellbeing and may cure some illnesses.

 

How Acupuncture Works

In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), acupuncture has long been used to improve the flow of vital energy (called qi or chi) throughout the body. This vital energy is thought to circulate through invisible energy lines which are known as meridians.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, health problems occur as a result of blockages in the flow of vital energy. By inserting needles into specified points along meridian lines, acupuncturists aim to restore the flow of vital energy and, in turn, improve health.

What Is Facial Rejuvenation and How

Dose it Works 

A Facial Rejuvenation treatment involves using acupuncture to improve skin and fight the aging process. A  non-invasive was to improve skin and act as an anti-aging treatment in part by stimulating the production of collagen (a protein that acts as a major component of your skin).

As you age, your skin's inner layer loses collagen and, as a result, becomes less supple and firm.  By inserting needles into different points on the face, you are creating painless micro-traumas to the tissue, which in turn tricks the brain into stimulating the production of collagen and elastin that smooths the lines and wrinkles in that area.
