FACIAL REVITALISATION For thousands of years, the people of the Orient have known that beauty comes from the inside out. In order for a person to look their best, they must radiate health. Early Chinese acupuncture practitioners knew that meridians either began or ended on the face and some have internal branches that go to the face. As early as the Sung dynasty (960AD to 1270 AD), Acupuncture rejuvenation were employed for the Empress and the Emperor’s concubines. Chinese Medicine famous axiom, “ Where qi goes, blood flow.” This concept may seem strange, however, we all know that increase circulation helps the body look & feel younger. As we know if we are healthy, happy and feel energised this reflect on our face, skin, and eyes. Likewise, if we are feeling below par and energetically deficient this will also reflect on our face, skin & eyes. Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture Treatment involves the insertion of hair thin needles into particular areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk and legs at specific acupuncture points along the meridians. These specific points are chosen to manipulate the movement of the energy in the body (Qi) in the body according to the needs of the individual. As the aim of Acupuncture is to treat the whole person, body, mind & spirit, a full comprehensive case history will be taken in order to identify any patterns that need to be addressed.
