Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes.
The aim of Acupuncture is to help restore the body’s energy balance and vitality, it achieves this by working on stimulating specific areas of the body, bringing it into better alignment.
What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture (or facial acupuncture) is a very effective non-surgical cosmetic therapy that can successfully reduce or retard the signs of ageing by encouraging the smooth flow blood and nutrients to and around the face, a process that can also significantly benefit skin conditions (acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis).
Your Initial Consultation
During your initial consultation, you will be asked questions about your general health and the issues you would like to have addressed.
This involves asking questions about your current symptoms and your medical history, as well as such things as your sleeping pattern, your appetite and digestion, and your emotional wellbeing. Women are also asked about their menstrual cycle and any past pregnancies and childbirth.
You might feel that some questions appear unrelated to your condition but the information you give helps your practitioner to form a more complete picture of your health and lifestyle. We will also take your pulse on both wrists and may examine your tongue and feel for areas of muscular tension or pain.
We will then select the most suitable acupuncture points for your condition.
Relax & Enjoy Your Treatment…
You then can completely relax for about 30mins whilst the treatment is under way. This is when most patients fall asleep and say they feel refreshed when they wake up. When your treatment is complete, you will be asked how you are feeling and from there your acupuncturist can decide if you need to have another appointment or not.
