Facial Acupuncutre and Facial Cupping

We are pleased to be able to offer Facial Acupuncture and Facial Cupping. The cost of each are noted in the descriptions, below.

Facial Acupuncture ($110 per session of 60 minutes each):

Facial Acupuncture is a safe, gentle, non-surgical option to reduce signs of aging, acne, and rosacea. Facial Acupuncture supports overall health
with the focus on revitalizing the face. Each facial acupuncture treatment also includes a custom body acupuncture treatment to
strengthen underlying imbalances specific to your body that contribute to aging and problem skin.  Placing needles in body points will help harmonize hormones, stress, digestion, sleep, and your immune system. When your entire body is in balance, this is reflected in healthy glowing skin and bright vibrancy in the eyes. 

As we age, collagen in our bodies naturally declines, reducing the structural integrity of our skin and causing sagging and wrinkles.
Exposure to UV light, smoking, and high sugar consumption all lead to diminished collagen production. Facial acupuncture works by
stimulating our body's production of collagen to lift and plump the skin. Patients can expect to see lifting of sagging areas, disappearance
of fine lines and softening of deeper set wrinkles, evening of skin tone, drainage of puffiness, and an overall brightening of the skin and
eyes. Facial acupuncture works by nourishing the skin from the inside out. The treatment involves inserting disposable hair thin acupuncture needles into the face and body to increase the microcirculation of the face resulting in a healthy glow.

Patients are also given advice of foods to eat that correspond to their specific body to help strengthen the body and organ systems.
Contraindications include patients who are taking blood thinning medication and anyone who has had Botox or other cosmetic facial injections in the past 6
months.

Facial Acupuncture treatments are covered under insurance plans that provide coverage for Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Facial Cupping ($85 per session of 60 minutes each):

Glass suction tubes designed for the face are used to rhythmically and gently vacuum tissues of the face, neck and upper chest. The suction
created, lifts, tones, and plumps muscles. It relaxes facial muscles and plumps the lines that time has etched on your face. It moves toxins and
stagnant blood out, and ushers new nutrient-enriched blood and fluids in, to detoxify your face; thereby repairing and nourishing your face.
Its deep invigorating action increases elastin and collagen; preserving our youthfulness. It reverses gravity’s effects on your face, like
hanging upside would; giving a youthful glow. It gives your face a lymphatic drainage and increases circulation, resulting in a clearer,
cleaner, more even complexion. It’s completely painless and leaves no marks.

Benefits of Facial Cupping:

Lines and wrinkles will plump, whereas scar tissue will soften, yielding lasting results and a deep relaxing treatment. The muscles of the face benefit greatly from the reduction of tension and tightness, releasing expression lines and loosening rigid TMJ muscles.

following schedule of treatments is recommended:
First 3 weeks: a treatment twice a week (each session 60 minutes)
Following 6 weeks: a treatment once a week (each 60 minutes)
