Cosmetic Acupuncture: The Holistic Facelift
by Natasha Kubis, L.Ac and Allison Tray
Cosmetic acupuncture has been practiced in China for centuries, dating back to the Qin and Song Dynasties. It was the beauty treatment available to the Empress, as well as the most powerful and wealthy women of that time. This ancient practice draws on the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine to address health concerns that accelerate the aging process.
Cosmetic acupuncture has been touted as the holistic facelift, rejuvenating your skin and easing the appearance of wrinkles. This healing treatment has also been proven to ease the appearance of “tough to treat” bags and dark circles around the eyes, often caused by a decrease in circulation. Decreased circulation causes skin and muscle to lose moisture, firmness, elasticity and tone. Cosmetic acupuncture enhances your health and radiance by restoring the circulation of blood and lymph to the skin, face, and muscle, leaving you looking and feeling refreshed.
Each collagen building session brings overall health and balance back into your body. Cosmetic acupuncture is a less expensive, non-toxic and gentle alternative to cosmetic surgery, with the benefits of relaxation and overall wellness. Today, the marriage of well-being and anti-aging is a combination being sought after by celebrities, like Madonna, Cher and Gwyneth Paltrow who have the constant pressure of looking their best and keeping their cool all the time. Rachel Ray even gets her pre-show acupuncture sessions backstage.
