Constitutional Facial Acupuncture
As its principal tenet, Constitutional Facial Acupuncture views the face as an extension of the Individual Spirit, or Shen. The body’s Vital Energy, or Qi, flows through the principle meridians of the body from the soles of the feet to the crown of the head. Needling of the face enhances blood flow and the flow of Qi, thereby nourishing the tissues of the face while globally influencing the health of the Mind, Body, and Spirit.
Constitutional Facial Acupuncture offers a healthy alternative to cosmetic surgery, fillers, and Botox injections. It nurtures the health of the facial tissues, resulting in improved integrity of the skin and facial muscles. Thus, the natural glow that is reflective of the inner Shen is brought forth. It further preserves the beautiful nuances of facial expression that make each one of us so very unique.
A typical treatment course involves 12-20 weekly sessions lasting 90 minutes each. The initial series is then followed by a maintenance schedule of once monthly treatments.
