Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can provide a safe, effective, natural and drug-free approach to reduce the signs of aging. Using the ancient technique of acupuncture, you can improve the muscle tone of the face and neck while also addressing underlying imbalances that may be contributing to the aging process.
According to Traditional Chinese medicine, wrinkles begin internally from an imbalance and weakness of Qi, or energy. Qi circulates throughout the body along a series of pathways called meridians. Flowing through these meridians, Qi provides nutrients, nourishment, support and energy to every cell, tissue, muscle and organ in the body. As we get older, it becomes more difficult for Qi to flow upward to "lift" the face. This leads to inadequate muscle tone, and over time can cause sagging of the skin and wrinkles. A variety of factors can contribute to this, such as poor diet, lack of enough water, poor digestion and circulation, and enviromental and emotional stresses.
Facial rejuvenation treatments using acupuncture can improve overall skin elasticity and muscle tone. They can help reduce the signs of aging by strengthening and stimulating the flow of Qi within the meridian pathways, especially those of the face. Acupuncture treatments may also be combined with herbal supplements and dietary and lifestyle recommendations. You will look and feel more vibrant, energetic and healthy.
