Injuries hurt. What makes this treatment system doubly beneficial is that it is paired with a wholistic diagnostic system that outlines how the isolated injury is affecting the whole body and is employed in part to manage those effects. By assisting the proper flow of Blood and Qi, reducing inflammatory damage, and promoting regenerative activities within the body; these treatments can help the healing process occur much faster and in a way that can offer a more complete and vital recovery.

Facial Rejuvination

 

There are many acupuncture related facial rejuvenation protocols, the one I practice is called Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture::

What is Mei Zen?

“Mei Zen” is literally translated as “beautiful person”.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the state of the physical health, emotions, and spirit is reflected on the skin of the face.  You look your best because your internal health is reflected on your face. Cosmetic Acupuncture is an exciting alternative to plastic surgery and potentially unhealthy ‘non-invasive’ techniques, because it not only focuses on the face but on the whole body as well.

What cosmetic results might people expect from the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System for the Face?

 
  • Improvement in the fine lines of the face and a diminishing effect on deeper wrinkles
  • Moisturized, softer skin and a more even skin tone
  • Improved muscle tone and firmer jaw line, as well as reduction in the beginning of jowls
  • Reduction or elimination of rosacea and acne
 

General health benefits include improvement for:


  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes
  • Depression
  • Mild Anxiety
  • Digestive Symptoms
 

How does it work?

 
The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System utilizes an ancient needling technique that is very superficial. The needling brings increased Qi and blood to the face and can improve or increase the production of collagen and elastin.  Since this system is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine, I use acupuncture point selections on the body to complete the balancing of energy.  This results in an overall rejuvenating effect of body, mind, and spirit.  Diet, lifestyle, and skincare are also evaluated and addressed.
