Facial Rejuvenation: The “Acupuncture Face-Lift”

facial rejuvenationIn Oriental medicine there is a saying, “Where Qi goes, Blood follows.” While this concept may sound mysterious to those unfamiliar with Oriental Medical theory, everyone knows that increased circulation helps the body to look and feel younger.

Common sense would tell us that treating the underlying cause of aging is preferable to masking the symptoms and allowing further decay and dysfunction to continue within the body. How a person looks and feels about themselves can influence both professional and personal prosperity.

Reasons for seeking this treatment may vary but everyone wants to and can look their best with this relaxing treatment.
