Facial Acupuncture: How does it work?

Facial Acupuncture

Facial Acupuncture (also know as Cosmetic Acupuncture) has been said to be one of 2016's Top Beauty Trends. Many modern women are looking for more natural ways of maintaining healthy looking skin and staying away from the toxic botox injections and fillers so present in many female beauty regimes. 

How Does It Work?

Facial Acupuncture works by stimulating blood and nutrients to the skin of the face. The needles also help muscles to relax and tighten the skin, collagen is also boosted by making micro-wounds in the skin, which the body then heals, thus stimulating the collagen to be produced. You can get some minor bleeding at the site of the needles and occasionally a small bruise. As Facial Acupuncture is a whole body treatment other conditions such as headaches, sleep disorders, weight loss and many other conditions may also be treated.

As a Physiotherapist and Health Coach, a large portion of my are already taking either painkillers or NSAIDS before they walk through my door, either OTC or prescription. I also have a significant number of clients who say to me 'I can't take anti-inflammatories because they upset my stomach' or 'I don't take any medications, they are not good for you'. But its my next question that often baffles my clients, 'So what natural anti-inflammatories have you tried or are taking?'I just get blank stares and awkward silences. I'm always surprised at the number of people that seem proud of themselves for deciding to not take conventional medication, but have absolutely no idea what foods or natural products could help them instead.
