How Acupuncture Works

The ancient Chinese art of healing has become popular throughout the world, particularly during the past few decades. It is simple, safe, free from the side effects of Western drug therapy, effective and cost-effective.Acupuncture treats and prevents disease by affecting certain key points on the body through needles. More than 300 of these points have been identified, with more being discovered over time.The most widely known and understood aspect of acupuncture by Western medical thinking is its pain killing or analgesic effects. This aspect has been studied by the Cadillac of scientific research methods – the double blind randomized control trial. ​Physiologists have discovered that certain points when stimulated by needles cause the brain to release endorphins.A more traditional explanation of acupuncture is that the body contains vital energy or qi (pronounced Chee) which, when flowing smoothly over channels or meridians that run throughout the body, is expressed overtly as health. 

​Tiny, sterile,disposable needles are inserted along meridian lines and acupuncture points to increase blood circulation. The face receives an increase of blood to nourish, oxygenate, and moisturize the skin from the inside out. Cosmetic acupuncture also stimulates the production of collagen, which give skin a tight, firm look. It is suitable for anyone who wants to be healthier and look younger. Clients who have had botox or injectables can also benefit as the results will be enhanced as circulation, muscle tone and skin clarity increase and stress is decreased.Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a safe and painless method of reducing the signs of ageing. It may erase as many as 5 – 10 years from the face, dependent on lifestyle and state of health. There are two aspects to the benefits of facial rejuvenation acupuncture. One is the benefit of “local” treatment and the other is the benefit of “root” treatment. Local treatment focuses on the underlying cause of facial symptoms such as hormone balance, digestive problems or emotional stress. Both local and root treatments should be perfomed on each visit in order to provide the best and longest lasting benefits.
