What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a modern approach to an age old concept of ‘healthy ageing’. The concept of cosmetic acupuncture is part of a recorded history which dates back to over 2000 years. It was used as one of the key beauty secrets of the wealthy and powerful women in ancient China but it only received formal recognition in the 1970’s from modern China. Today the effectiveness and benefits of acupuncture facial rejuvenation is becoming more widespread and many celebrities depend on it for their health and vitality. Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna and Cher are among the celebrities who have come forward to proclaim the benefits of this age old treatment.
Cosmetic acupuncture is a specialty field of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which advocates a holistic approach to health and well being. Cosmetic Acupuncture aims to treat the person as a whole and draws upon a system of diagnosis and treatment which balances and restores health from the inside out. Treatment is individualized and based on a persons TCM diagnosis which is derived from a combination of specialized questions and facial, pulse and tongue diagnostic techniques. Treatment involves acupuncture, Tui -na( acupressure massage), cupping, gua-sha, jade roller and herbal mask applications.
