Acupuncture to look and feel your best!
Cosmetic acupuncture utilises ancient Chinese Medicine techniques such as acupuncture, guasha, and jade rolling to provide you with the youthful glow of healthy skin. Throughout the ages these techniques have been used to smooth fine lines, promote circulation, boost collagen production, drain toxins, eliminate acne, tone facial muscles and brighten the skin. Cosmetic acupuncture, unlike Botox and fillers, allows you to experience the joy of reverse ageing without having to freeze your face or fill it up with chemicals that don’t really belong there. This then allows your natural beauty to shine through and for the gorgeous you to remain YOU, inside and out.
So what’s involved in Cosmetic Acupuncture?
The treatment usually begins with a guasha facial, where we wash the face and apply a serum. We then perform a facial using either a jade or rose quartz guasha tool – this is usually where you fall asleep and enter bliss land! We may then use gentle, super-fine acupuncture needles that are specifically designed to be used on the face. These needles generally stay in for about 15-30 minutes. At the conclusion of the treatment we may use a jade roller to cool and soothe the skin and close the pores. Each and every treatment is individualised and targeted to meet your specific wants and needs, and to match your constitutional Chinese Medicine Pattern. You may also receive herbs or diet & lifestyle advice to fit your pattern and keep you feeling great, both inside and out.
How does it work?
Acupuncture promotes the circulation of Qi and Blood in the face, promotes muscle tone, and is very relaxing.
Guasha drains toxins that may accumulate under the skin (like in acne), activates circulation, and is very relaxing.
Jade Rolling cools the skin, closes the pores , and is very relaxing.
(You may notice some similarities between the three…. 😴)
