Are You Ready to Get Well and Stay Well? Want to Lose Weight?

If you’ve tried losing weight without success, it may be worth your while to investigate Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine solutions.

Acupuncture is the insertion of ultra-thin, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points on the body which reside on channels or meridians; these are pathways in both the exterior and interior of the body. These points, when needled, can regulate the way in which the body functions.

Can acupuncture be used to treat infertility?

Acupuncture helps by addressing problems that affect fertility such as an under-functioning thyroid (hypothyroidism) or over-functioning thyroid (hyperthyroidism).

pregnant-womanAcupuncture, frequently combined with herbal medicine, has been used for centuries to treat some but not all causes of infertility. For example, acupuncture and herbs will not work to address tubal adhesions which can occur as a result of pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis. However, in this situation, an individual could still benefit from acupuncture and herbs because of the potential effect of improved ovarian and follicular function. Additionally, acupuncture can increase blood flow to the endometrium, helping to facilitate a thick, rich lining.

When should acupuncture treatment begin?

Acupuncture is similar to physical therapy in that it is a process-oriented method of medical intervention. It is better to do more than less. Patients are commonly treated for three to four months before progressing to insemination, in vitro fertilization (IVF), or donor-egg transfer. This pacing of treatment seems to have a therapeutic effect.

Constitutional Facial Acupuncture

Constitutional Facial Acupuncture is non-invasive, less costly than surgical procedures, and draws upon the ancient Chinese wisdom related to longevity, beauty and balance.

Constitutional Facial Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for renewing the face as well as the whole body.

Fine lines may be erased, deeper lines reduced and bags around the neck and eyes firmed while improving a persons overall constitution by regulating their internal balance.

Fine needles are placed at various acupuncture points on the face, neck and around the eyes to stimulate the body’s natural energy, or Qi. Since muscle groups are addressed, the face lifts itself, via the acupuncture points, through the muscles’ toning and tightening action.

The dual action of needles and the topical application of Chinese herbs help stimulate blood circulation, improve facial color and even out skin irregularities while providing a sense of well being.

The Use of Chinese Herbs

The Constitutional Facial Acupuncture™ treatment protocol incorporates Chinese herbal masks, poultices and moisturizers. Jade rollers, which enhance blood circulation, remove fine lines and age spots, and prevent premature aging, are used to massage moisturizer into the skin. The ancient empresses of China used jade as a precious stone to be worn, not only around their necks, but also to attract yin and nourishment into their skin. The stone served a double purpose of promoting beauty and for mystical protection.

Short and Long – Term Effects of Facial Acupuncture

After the first treatment, one usually observes an increased glow to the complexion, the result of reduced stress and increased Qi and blood flow to the face. The face appears more “open”, there is a clarity in the eyes (“clear spirit” also known as SHEN), and the patient appears and feels more rested; wrinkles start to lessen and the skin appears more toned.

A significant difference in appearance can be ascertained following the 5th to 7th treatments; even more marked changes in wrinkles, skin tone, and ones spirit. The resonance of relaxation and calmness is more pronounced; appearing as if one has returned from vacation. Lifting of the jowls, neck and the eyes has begun and is usually noticeable. With continuing treatment, constitutional issues like digestive complaints have been ameliorated or subsided.

By the end of a series, the patient should look and feel years younger. These results may vary slightly, depending upon how well the patient has taken care of themselves during the process, and afterward. At this stage, booster treatments provide ongoing support within a normal process of aging.
