Facial acupuncture Treatments

Cosmetic acupuncture, also known as facial acupuncture or facial rejuvenation acupuncture, is an ancient practice rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It offers anti-aging benefits by stimulating collagen production, improving blood circulation, and tightening facial muscles to enhance skin tone, texture, and elasticity, so you can look and feel your best.

Feeling our best means putting our best face forward by resolving any underlying imbalances that may lead to a dull, sagging or blemished complexion. Our signature acupuncture treatments will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, with an undeniably healthy glow.

Cupping Therapy

“Where there’s stagnation, there will be pain. Remove the stagnation, and you remove the pain”. The old Chinese maxim holds that pain results from the congestion, stagnation and blockage of Qi, or vital energy, vital fluids, lymph, phlegm, and blood. If pain is the essence of disease, then suffering is a result of obstructed or irregular flow in the body.

Experience this incredible modality for yourself! Safe for most people, even during pregnancy when performed by a qualified practitioner with advanced training in pregnancy support. It is most commonly used to provide relief from neck, shoulder, back and hip pain and tension, common cold, strenuous exercise recovery and improve general circulation and detoxification.
