Facial rejuvenation through acupuncture begins with an assessment of the condition of the skin and underlying systems. If desired a treatment of fire cupping on your back is applied to release tense upper back muscles encouraging the healing processes of your body to awaken. Constitutional points are applied to the body to ensure the entire system is contributing to improving the skin, removing blockages, reducing stressors, increasing circulation and balancing hormones.Your skin is then prepared with a cleanser followed by massage of the neck, head and face. Gua sha and light facial cupping (when appropriate for your skin) is performed to stimulate collagen production and to further relax the muscles of the face. Needles are placed in key locations in the facial area as well as on the body to maximize results. Number of needles applied varies according to goals, condition of the skin, and contributing constitutional factors. We finish with a cooling mask and serum for optimal nourishment.
Benefits of facial rejuvenation include increased blood flow to the skin, lifting of sagging muscles, stimulation of collagen, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, reduction of pigmentation and scarring, reduction of cortisol and a euphoric state.
After the treatment, rinse in the garden tub and continue relaxing in the steam room and infrared sauna.
