Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Qi is the core of Chinese Medicine. Qi, when translated, is energy, or the circulating life force within the body. In Chinese Medicine it is this Qi that we want to make sure is able to flow freely within the body. When it is allowed to flow, there is harmony, balance and good health within the body. When something is blocking the Qi or there is too much or not enough Qi, there is an imbalance that can lead to disharmony and disease. Imbalances can affect the mind, body and spirit and show up as pain and illness.
In order to keep the Qi in balance, Naturopathic Doctors use herbs, acupuncture and other lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise to restore the energetic balance within the body.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture, also known as cosmetic acupuncture, is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging. It also creates balance and harmony within the entire body. When the body is balanced the aging process is slowed. Insertion of sterilized, disposable needles into points on the face and body stimulates the body’s energy and flow of blood to the face. This helps to relax and tonify the facial muscles, increase circulation, even skin tone and increase collagen production. The result is a brighter more even complexion, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and lifting of unwanted sagging skin.
