Facial Rejuvanation Acupuncture
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture is a form of cosmetic acupuncture that improves the appearance and health of your skin. It relaxes the body and mind, and counters the effects of aging both from the inside and out. Don't let the word cosmetic confuse you, this treatment is therapeutic and provides health benefits.
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture naturally induces the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins that tone and lift the skin and smooth out wrinkles. It improves circulation, nutrient delivery and toxin removal to restore the skin's healthy glow.
Facial rejuvenation is performed under the care of our Naturopathic Doctor with extended certification. An initial assessment is done in order to assess the 'whole body' then followed with facial acupuncture. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is part of the scope of practice for Naturopathic Doctors who have undertaken additional training.
WHAT IS AURICULAR ACUPUNCTURE?
Known as German Auricular Acupuncture, it is a complete modality of diagnosis and treatment. Unlike body acupuncture, auricular acupuncture is treating the central nervous system rather than meridians. The ear represents a map of the whole body, including the musculoskeletal system, the organs, and the brain. The practitioner inspects the ear for changes in shape, color, tenderness, and electrical conductance that signify pain, illness or any other pathological change. The points are then treated with a needle, ear seed, laser or electrical stimulation.
WHAT CAN EAR ACUPUNCTURE TREAT?
The list of applications for auricular treatments is quite extensive so here are just very few of the conditions that can be treated: Allergies, Anxiety, Arthritis, Chronic pain, Constipation, Infertility, Depression, Fibromyalgia, Headache, Insomnia, Irritable bowel syndrome, Low back pain, Migraine, Thyroid issues, Smoking cessation, Chronic pain, Stress, Weight issues, Vertigo.
Auricular Acupuncture was developed by Dr. Paul Nogier, French neurologist, in the 1950s and then further researched and developed into a complete medical theory by Dr. Frank Bahr et.al. in Germany. They discovered that the Ear tells the story of what is happening in the whole human system at any point in time! As a microsystem projection of the brain, the ear provides a precise map that is visible, accessible and diagnostic! Even conditions related to internal scars, or the central nervous system, conditions that would otherwise demand invasive procedures, are available here for assessment and treatment.
