Is the ancient Chinese healing therapy that aims to re-establish the Qi (pronounced “chee”) energy balance, and is predominantly used for the relief of muscle stiffness and muscle pain.
Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes.
It is based on scientific evidence that shows the treatment can stimulate nerves under the skin and in muscle tissue.
This results in the body producing pain-relieving substances, such as endorphins. It is likely these substances are responsible for any beneficial effects seen with this form of acupuncture.
Traditional acupuncture is based on the belief that an energy, or “life force”, flows through the body in channels called meridians. This life force is known as Qi.
Practitioners who adhere to traditional beliefs about acupuncture believe that when Qi does not flow freely through the body, this can cause illness. They also believe acupuncture can restore the flow of Qi, and so restore health.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
For facial beauty is a wonderful alternative approach to ‘fighting’ the ageing process.
It can help to increase the blood and lymph circulation to stimulate the face’s natural colour and tone the skin.
For the process of acupuncture we only use the highest quality surgical grade sterile needles, that are disposed of in a controlled way.
Acupuncture, though it can look quite traumatic, is completely safe and usually painless.
