Toning Facial Muscles

Facial acupuncture is a full constitutional treatment that views the face as an extension of meridians and channels of the body which flows from the feet to the head.

When the face is treated, the blood flow and circulation increases, carrying nutrients to the cells. The body interprets the insertion of the needle as a “positive” injury which can then stimulate collagen and elastin production.

The Constitutional Facial Acupuncture Renewal protocol is more than just acupuncture. It is deeply relaxing and is designed to treat both, the body and the face itself. This means that as the appearance of the face is treated, so is the overall health of the body. We treat the body as a whole with variations of acupuncture as well as facial acupuncture. This in turn benefits the whole body and the facial muscles.
