“I wanted to take a proactive, wholistic approach to anti-aging; something that was gentle, natural looking, and non invasive, yet effective. I had heard about cosmetic accupuncture, and was very pleasantly surprised with the process, not to mention the affordability! A whole series costs less than one Botox treatment, and the results are much more natural and long lasting.
I was impressed with how warmly Kristen welcomed me into her beautiful and peaceful studio, and spent time getting to know me and discuss my treatment goals. She is extremely thorough and knowledgeable about Eastern Medicine and really takes time to listen to people to come up with a personalized treatment plan that includes not only treating cosmetic concerns, but also things like anxiety, poor sleep, and painful periods; I’ve learned how removing stressors like these can hugely impact how we look! After just one treatment, my normally nightmarish-period, was pretty mild; these treatments are SO much more than cosmetic. And relatively painless as well, with only brief and mild discomfort upon insertion of the needles in certain sensitive areas like my feet and ears. So far, after six treatments, I haven’t had a single bruise., and it hasn’t aggravated my melasma/ hyperpigmentation. Kristen plays relaxing music and makes the experience very enjoyable and spa-like. Each treatment is very comprehensive, and a little different depending on what is going on with me that particular day.
Since beginning treatments, I have noticed that my skin is clearer and plumper, and my period is MUCH less painful. I am also very relaxed each time I have a treatment and just feel better overall. I really look forward to treatments to destress and unwind, and always leave looking and feeling noticeably better than when I came. 🙂”     – Logan N.

If you want to rejuvenate your skin and improve your overall health at the same time, without the use of toxic chemicals and risky surgery; then the Cosmetic Acupuncture series is the treatment of choice for you.  It has even been featured in Oprah Winfrey’s magazine.

The Treatment
Over a 10 week period, you will have 12 sessions (twice a week for two weeks, once a week for eight weeks) to receive acupuncture treatments that promote both cosmetic anti-aging, as well as improvement of your overall health.

During each treatment, tiny, hair-thin needles will be inserted into your body, head and face; in order to unlock your body’s natural collagen repair mechanism.  In Chinese medicine, we call this “cultivating Qi”.  From a biomedical standpoint, each needle is creating a “micro-trauma”, which your body then naturally repairs using your own innate skin firming biochemicals.

Top of the line, natural cleansing and moisturizing products will be applied along with a facial massage, to pamper and relax you. This treatment is completely natural, without the use of toxic substances, harmful injectables, or risky surgery.

How It Works
Cosmetic acupuncture treatments are typical whole-body-energy-balancing acupuncture treatments, with the addition of facial needles. And, like all acupuncture treatments, they gain efficacy cumulatively; i.e. – the results are temporary if you don’t follow  the prescribed treatment protocol (see Pricing below).

The Science Behind the Efficacy of Cosmetic Acupuncture ❤️

Acupuncture, whether cosmetic or otherwise, works to balance your body’s energies. Through that process, your physical, mental and emotional body, and by extension, your face, skin, muscles etc., can be restored to a state of health and wellbeing. The feeling of wellbeing that goes along with balanced energy; appears on one’s face; real and lasting change begins on the inside.

However, your body has a memory; muscular, as well as at a cellular level. When you start receiving acupuncture treatments we are working to remove blocks and imbalances in the flow of energy, which have been build up over your lifetime. It’s kind of like working against a very strong current or digging up an old tree with very long roots. It’s a non-linear process where the treatments create balance and then your body’s memory slowly shifts the flow of energy back to it’s “comfort zone” (imbalance). With regular treatments which occur closer together (i.e. before your body’s memory is able to shift your energy back out of balance); we are able to strengthen the balanced flow of energy from one treatment to the next.  Ultimately, it’s a process of trying to deprogram / reprogram that memory to create a lasting effect; where the flow of balanced energy is strong enough to be maintained over longer periods of time.
As with life, nothing is permanent and change is inevitable. Life creates stagnation; physical, mental and emotional, but with continued “maintenance” treatments (once a month is often adequate) it’s possible to maintain a relatively balanced state of energy ((i.e. a feeling of health and wellbeing).  Just as the first few treatments are more effective when they occur closer together, maintenance treatments can occur less frequently while still achieving the same effect.
All of this, essentially means that it’s impossible to create lasting change in one session (of pretty much anything I suspect) and exponentially less effective with sporadic treatments. Just like you couldn’t do yoga once and expect to get or stay flexible. Although, you could have one treatment or yoga class and feel fantastic, that is likely … but not lasting.
Whatever you choose is entirely up to you. What is important to me, is that you understand how it works so that you are equipped with the right information to make the best choice, and so that you will get the best results … and not waste your money.
