Facial Acupuncture - a fusion of beauty and health
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (FRA)is a relatively painless and effective non-surgical method to reducing the signs of the aging process and helps your body look and feel younger. It treats the constitutional conditions that contribute to the aging process while addressing their manifestation in the outward appearance. FRA uses the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and involves the insertion of hair-fine sterilized needles in to particular areas of the head, face, neck, hands, torso and legs along meridian (channel) energy flow to stimulate Qi and blood.
FRA can eliminate the appearance of fine lines and diminish deeper wrinkles; reduce bags under the eyes, firm up sagging jowls, lift droopy eyelids and minimize double chins. Needling improves the circulation of Qi and blood to the face to help bring moisture the skin, increase collagen production, tighten pores and improve hormonal balance to help acne. It also brightens the eyes and reduce evidence of stress in the face. Using the Virginia Doran's FRA method, treatments bring out your innate beauty and radiance and make you feel years younger naturally.
Course of treatment
Generally, a course of treatment consist of 10 sessions. Effects of treatment become more visible and lasting after the 7th session. However, results will vary depending on each individual's unique health condition and/or lifestyle. A signed informed consent form must be completed prior to treatment.
FRA is not a replacement therapy but a constitutional health therapy
FRA is not a replacement of but an alternative to surgery. It is much more affordable than most cosmetic surgery or botox. It is safer, with no side effects or risk of disfigurement when applied correctly by a qualified practitioner.
FRA is based on the precepts of TCM that the appearance of the face reflects the overall balance of health of the entire body. Changes are gradual and results may vary depending on each person's constitutional profile.
FRA is contra-indicated for anyone with pituitary disorders, heart disorders, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, those with a tendency for excessive bleeding or bruising or currently suffering from migraines. FRA should not be administered when an individual has a flu, cold, during episodes of acute allergy, herpes outbreak or undergoing botox injections, etc.
