Facial revitalisation (Acupuncture)

20 September, 2011

Facial acupuncture, or revitalisation, is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process.  More than just a cosmetic procedure, it is designed to help the whole body look and feel younger.

Acupuncture has been practiced in eastern countries for over 2,500 years.  It is a traditional form of Chinese medicine based on the understanding that our body’s motivating energy force or Qi (chi) moves through a network of channels that run beneath the skin.

What conditions is it used for?

As well as affecting the face, the acupuncture simultaneously treats the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process.

What to expect

Your therapist will use fine, sterile needles at various points on the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk and legs on the meridian lines to balance the energy flow. Seeing a qualified practitioner gives you the opportunity to experience the best available treatment with a professional with years of training and experience.
