FACIAL REJUVENATION / COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE
A Non-Surgical Facelift!
What is cosmetic acupuncture?
Facial rejuvenation is one of the best anti-aging treatments to fine lines and wrinkles, saggy skin, droopey eyelids and acne. Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face. This superficial insertion will increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.
How often do you have to get treatments?
10-12 sessions. Ideally 2-3 times a week. Once a month for maintenance. It will actually improve your skin, not just maintain it.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
