Acu-lifting- the new face of anti-aging
I was skeptical when I signed up for a post graduate training in Facial Rejuvenation- until the instructor picked ME as the guinea pig. Having just finished 3 grueling years of acupuncture study, I felt exhausted and I guess it was obvious I needed a lift!
This acupuncture treatment is an alternative to facelift surgery and injectable fillers. It is used by models and actors ( Cher, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna), to maintain a more youthful looking appearance with virtually none of the risks of other cosmetic procedures.
Others realize that an acupuncture face lift works deeper to correct underlying conditions that contribute to aging such as hormonal imbalances, digestive problems and stress while treating the external signs of sagging and wrinkles - potentially erasing 5-10 years from the face. It is also a very relaxing way to spend an hour of your time.
I only had 2 treatments that week but I felt and observed that my skin became firmer, my eyelids less puffy and I felt a surge of energy for the days following the treatment. My daughter noticed that my skin tone was once again pink and glowing- a nice change from the ashen pallor I had before the treatment.
As a practitioner, I can say I LOVE helping someone return to their youthful looks with acupuncture. It is exciting and the effects can be noticed by others after the 6th or 7th treatment. For more information please visit my site
