Constitutional Facial Acupuncture

Beautiful skin begins with good circulation and healthy blood and Qi flow. Your face is a road map of energy and emotions, and according to oriental medicine, skin issues are caused by internal organ imbalances that manifest as dark circles under the eyes, pale skin, acne and excessive wrinkles. According to Chinese medicine, ”Where Qi goes blood flows”. In examining meridian flow, all the yang meridians rise up to the head. Because of this meridian connection, the face remains warm on a cold day when the rest of your body requires bundling in a thick coat. Therefore, the face reflects the body’s vital Qi, and the stimulation of the face, via treatment modalities such as acupuncture, tuning forks, micro current and tui-na, affect the meridians. Because the majority of the channels pass through the face it is justly regarded as the seat of emotions and spirit. In addressing emotion and spirit, a sense of self worth can be achieved, along with joy and radiance. Cleansing herbs are used to clear the skin; their properties include diuretics, laxative, anti- inflammatory, antibiotic, and blood and lymph cleansing.

In our daily life we come across with several sources of toxic waste such as the polluted air we breathe, toxic chemicals found in food and drinks, environmental waste in our neighborhood, as well as toxins from mental stress, anger, anxiety and depression. As a result, these toxins lead to blood stasis (stagnated or congested blood) which slows down or blocks the supply of oxygen and nutrients to our cells. This treatment will help release heat and toxins and regenerate new blood flow by applying cupping to certain acupuncture points, the use of essential oils according to the 5 elements, and needling to bring balance to the body.
