Acupuncture & TCM

What is therapeutic acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a holistic & therapeutic approach that affects several of the human body’s systems simultaneously. Treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterilized, disposable needles into acupuncture points along the body’s energy channels, known as Meridians, which allow for the promotion of circulation where blockage occurs. The purpose of acupuncture practice is to alleviate the body of stress, pain or discomfort that may be stemming from a blockage of or deficiency in its energy.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, which involve the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face. This superficial insertion increases the circulation to the face and stimulates collagen production, which fills out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

Cellulite Acupuncture

Cellulite is the name given to lumpy, irregular fatty deposits that appear as dimpled skin around women’s hips, buttocks, and thighs.

Acupuncture is a safe, natural way to help eliminate cellulite. Even though cellulite affects your outward appearance, it appears in the deeper layer of your skin. That is why external treatments like topical creams cannot effectively deal with the problem.

Acupuncture deals with cellulite at its source, by nourishing connective skin tissues from within. This is an intensive treatment designed to cleanse and improve circulation, as well as firm and improve skin tone focusing on problem areas. With the help of acupuncture you will notice smoother feeling legs and a firmer looking appearance in your skin.
