Cosmetic acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) it involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into particular areas of the face and body along the Meridians and also the use of Plum Blossom Tapping, Cupping, Gua Sha and Tui Na Massage techniques.

Cosmetic Acupuncture substantially increases the circulation of blood, lymph and Qi, and promotes the production of collagen. Stress and expression lines are transformed, resulting in a fresh looking face with smoother skin. Even deep wrinkles are reduced and the face lifted.

The TCM approach balances the organ system and treats the underlying causes of ageing and disease at the root. Cosmetic Acupuncture can also treat Cellulite, Sagging Skin, Alopecia and many Dermatological conditions using various techniques.

It is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic surgery, chemical peels, synthetic fillers and Botox injections. Furthermore, the effects look completely natural, just a younger, fresher, firmer looking YOU!

In 1996 a study in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment.
