Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine that has been utilized for thousands of years to help bring our bodies back into balance, promote healing and optimal functioning. Acupuncture uses a system of energetic channels that run throughout the body that have specific points where very fine acupuncture needles are inserted, stimulating biochemical and physiological changes in the body. Acupuncture treats the body as a whole and has the ability to treat both the branch and root cause of disease.
Initial treatment includes a detailed intake to access any health concerns and imbalances in the body. Your tongue and pulse will be examined, followed by an acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture needles are inserted and remain in the body for 15-30 mins. After treatment we will talk about a treatment plan and lifestyle recommendations.
Before treatment: eat a snack, avoid caffeine/alcohol, comfortable clothes
After treatment suggestions: be gentle with yourself, go for a small walk, avoid alcohol, hydrate with warm fluids, sleep early.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is an ancient beauty secret. Initial treatment includes an intake to determine any concerns and goals for the treatment. A combination of body and facial acupuncture is done to balance the skin from the inside out, increase collagen production (due to micro-trauma caused by the needles which triggers the body to heal itself with cell regeneration) which will cause a “plumping” effect to soften and erase fine lines/wrinkles. Gua-Sha and Jade Rolling are used to sculpt facial muscles, increase circulation, drain lymph nodes, reduce puffiness and relax facial tension. A course of cosmetic acupuncture consists of 10 treatments (twice a week) for best results. Contraindicated for pregnancy and cancer, it is also contraindicated for areas treated with Botox within the last 3 months.
Before: eat a snack, hydrate, arrive with no makeup on skin.
During the sessions: reduce alcohol, reduce excessive sugars and fats, the recommended diet consists of vegetables, smaller amounts of fruits, grains and proteins. Plenty of fluids and light exercise are also recommended.
Following health inspection regulations, your acupuncturist will be wearing two masks, and goggles, and eventually will have a face shield, as this session will require access to your full face.
