Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation
Beauty cannot be attained simply by slapping colors and textures onto the skin. This is because the skin reflects and reacts to your entire being – physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual. To keep your skin looking beautiful, wrinkle-free, youthful and smooth on the outside, you must work on the inside of your body. Specific areas of the face indicate internal health because the face is connected to your internal organs. As Chi (vital energy) moves and circulates, it strengthens the functioning of organs connected to that area. Beautiful skin begins with good Chi and blood circulation. Chi is the invisible envelope that revitalizes/lifts your energy. You can lift your face by lifting Chi. This can be done through acupuncture, as well as good herbal medicine. We recommend the following:
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture / The acupuncture facelift is becoming a popular non-surgical option for those who want to not only maintain beauty, radiance and vitality in the face, but also improve their overall health and wellbeing. Acupuncture facelifts have even been featured in the mainstream media, such as on ABC Television’s “Good Morning America” and the Public Broadcasting System’s “Healthweek.” Studies show that among 300 cases treated with facial acupuncture, 90 percent experienced marked beneficial results with only one course of treatment (International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture, 1996).
Acupuncture for facial beauty is a wonderful, holistic alternative to fighting the aging process:
Increasing the flow of energy, blood and lymph circulation improves the face’s natural, healthy color, diminishes wrinkles and eliminates fine lines. Promoting collagen production increases muscle tone and elasticity, helping firm the skin, fill out wrinkles, and reduce bags and sagging.
Stimulating the formation of body fluids nourishes the skin and encourages it to be moister, softer, smoother and more lustrous. Chinese herbs work well in replenishing Yin energy (body fluid), which is extremely beneficial in the prevention and/or improvement of wrinkles resulting from menopause or cigarette smoking.
Healing physical, emotional and spiritual issues will reduce stress and improve overall health and wellbeing. Because the body/mind/spirit are all connected, negative emotions reflect themselves in the face and change the appearance of skin texture, color and tension. Acupuncture can eliminate stress and bring out innate strength, vitality and health. In addition to enhanced skin appearance, most people are pleased to find that their sinus problems, headaches, toothaches, TMJ, PMS and menopause either disappear or distinctly improve! You will not only look younger but also most certainly feel younger.
Acupuncture is an excellent alternative approach without surgery or injections. It is far less expensive, more natural, less invasive and safer than plastic surgery or Botox injection(s). Acupunctures has no side effects, toxicity, inflammation or recovery time.

If you feel emotional stress, anxiety, anger or nervousness, as well as experience PMS, you may disrupt or block the flow of Chi, and/or your blood circulation. We suggest Jia Wei Xiao Yao Pian to cultivate an inner calm that leads to inner and outer beauty.
Smokers, as well as women experiencing menopause, often have dry, dull, thick skin. In Chinese Medicine, anything that irritates the lungs also dries the skin. Women in menopause also have Yin (body fluid) deficiency. Da Bu Yin Pian works wonderfully to provide moisture to body tissue, clean away toxins and improve skin quality.
Sleep is vital for the body to regenerate and rejuvenate. Without proper sleep, your body will deteriorate and age much faster, and no miracle food or cosmetic solution can bring back the beauty.
