cosmetic acupuncture treatments (90 minutes)
I am trained in the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture™ protocol, a natural holistic and comprehensive program designed to rejuvenate your face, creating a more youthful appearance while addressing your overall health to bring balance to the entire body.
Facial rejuvenation treatments consist of a consultation, facial massage and insertion of facial and body acupuncture needles. Traditional Chinese medicine recognizes that proper function of the internal systems directly impacts facial beauty and the aging process. Accordingly, an individualized facial treatment plan includes a corresponding treatment of the internal systems. Each facial rejuvenation appointment lasts approximately 90 minutes. To achieve maximum results, facial rejuvenation treatments are recommended two times a week for a period of 5 weeks.
