Constitutional Facial Acupuncture
Experience Constitutional Facial Acupuncture™ - a safe, painless and effective treatment for renewing the face and whole body. Constitutional Facial Acupuncture™ treatment incorporates Chinese herbal masks, poultices and moisturizers to the face, as well as acupuncture to points on the body to make the most of treatment.
Fine needles are placed at a variety of acupuncture points on the face, neck and around the eyes to stimulate the body’s natural energies, or Qi. Acupuncture treats the muscle “motor points,” which causes muscle to tighten so the face literally lifts itself. Acupuncture also stimulates blood circulation, improving facial color and tone.
How Long is the Treatment?
Constitutional Facial Acupuncture™ involves the patient in an organic process, in which a series of treatments is necessary to achieve maximal effect. After an initial evaluation, and taking into consideration other variables such as stress, diet, lifestyle, genetic inheritance, proper digestion and elimination, sleep, emotional balance, and age, the following durations of treatment are customarily recommended:
After the first treatment, one usually observes an increased glow to the complexion, the result of increased Qi and blood flow to the face. The person’s face appears more “open”, there is a clarity in the eyes, and the patient appears to be more rested; wrinkles start to lessen and the skin appears more toned.
“Thinking Outside The Botox”

By the end of a series, the patient may look and feel years younger. These results vary 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.
Constitutional Facial Acupuncture™ is non-invasive, less costly than surgical procedures, and draws upon the ancient Chinese wisdom related to longevity, beauty and balance.
Since the face mirrors a person's physical, emotional, and spiritual being, Constitutional Facial Acupuncture™ treats the whole body not just the face as a separate entity. These treatments do not intend to obliterate facial wrinkles to produce a tight, immobile "mask-like" effect. The practitioner of Constitutional Facial Acupuncture™ seeks to honor the dignity of an individual's years and accumulated wisdom, addressing the total person and their constitutional issues. Herbal formulas, TCM dietary therapy, and regular exercise are emphasized in order to capitalize on Constitutional Facial Acupuncture treatment.
