Graceful Aging

Acupuncture, herbology, diet, and manual therapies have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to increase beauty and longevity for thousands of years.

Microneedling is a modern update to an ancient method, used for returning a youthful appearance to aging skin.  This technique induces collagen production, firming the skin, creating a more youthful appearance.  Instead of spending time trying to cover effects of aging, microneedling addresses these issues at their source, bringing a natural glow stemming directly from improved skin health.

Microneedling is done with a sophisticated mechanized device that pulses an array of sterile miniature needles just to a depth of one-half to four millimeters. 


For thousands of years the "Plum Blossom" or "7-star" needle, has been used to return skin to a healthy state.  The Plum Blossom is a little hammer with tiny needles embedded in its face.  The little hammer is tapped against the skin.

Like its ancient counterpart microneedling is ideal for addressing:

age spots          scars          thinning hair          skin firmness          acne

Microneedling addresses skin health while facial acupuncture targets the underlying facial muscles, making a combination of the two ideal.

Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation

While facial acupuncturists target facial muscle and skin health we also focus on your underlying health and well being.  This is the philosophy of "Root and Branch."  For example, you may initially enter the door simply to increase the muscle tone of your cheeks, reduce the furrow between your brows, or diminish other wrinkles. You may wish to smooth your neck or reduce age spots. That chief complaint is one "branch" created by a "root" that may be dietary, environmental, emotional, or likely a combination.  Supporting your health supports your appearance, from the inside.  

A facial acupuncture rejuvenation session may include cupping, gua sha, dietary advice, red and infrared light therapy, Chinese face reading, microcurrent, exfoliation and facial products consultation.

The needles used in acupuncture facial rejuvenation are very fine, sterile, high quality, one time use.  Often, patients are not even aware a needle has been inserted.

Smooth appearance of Cellulite 

With the use of red light, manual therapy and topical application, the appearance of thigh and buttock cellulite reduction is accomplished through a series of sessions. 

Facial Pain

Facial pain occurs for a variety of reasons. Clenching the jaw, inflammation of nerves, even viral infections may be a catalyst. Acupuncture can calm the facial nerves as well as relax the facial muscles.
