Facial rejuvenation is also known as the acupuncture facelift. It is a great alternative for people who don’t want the side effects associated with surgical facelift but who want younger looking skin.
Using acupuncture to stimulate collagen, facial rejuvenation:
- Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
- Increases collagen production
- Tightens pores
- Restores youthful looking skin and radiance
Electrical stimulation also known as Electro-Acupuncture was developed around 1934 as an extension of hand manipulation of acupuncture needles. It involves applying electrical current to acupuncture needles to stimulate acupuncture points. Needles are inserted in the skin and electrodes are then attached to the handle of the needles.
This therapy is used for conditions that require continuous stimulation like neurological conditions such as muscle spasms, paralysis, and chronic pain. In patients with serious cardiac conditions or who have a pacemaker, it is best to be avoided.
Tui Na is an ancient healing that has been used for thousands of years. It is a very safe therapy that uses that uses Chinese taoist and martial arts principles and is often used in conjunction with acupuncture. It is commonly used to treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
Tui Na methods involve brushing, kneading, rolling, pressing, and rubbing areas between each of the joints to get the energy moving in the meridians and the muscles. It not only works on muscles and joints but also at a deeper level, affecting energy (Qi) in the body.
The name comes from two of the actions: tui means “to push” and na means “to lift and squeeze.” The practitioner can then use range of motion, traction, with the stimulation of acupressure points.
