WHAT IS  ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture involves the use of very fine, sterile, single use needles into points on the body with the intention of initiating the healing process. Acupuncture points are located at areas of the body where there may be too much or to little energy or where there may be a blockage. Treatment is focused on correcting underlying imbalances and alleviating the symptoms of disease. Generally, acupuncture is painless; you may feel some warmth and tingling at the site. A feeling of deep relaxation is often reported after an acupuncture session.

Acupuncture is used for a wide variety of conditions and symptoms such as:

  • Chronic & acute pain
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia 
  • Hay fever
  • Digestion
  • Neurological conditions
  • Fertility & IVF
  • Pregnancy 
  • Women’s health
  • Cosmetic and dermatology

DERMATOLOGY & COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE 
How it works

Acupuncture is a safe and natural way to promote healthy, smooth, glowing skin. Acupuncture facilitates the activation of collagen and elastin producing cells under the skin surface to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and smooth out fine lines. Collagen contributes to skin firmness while elastin keeps the skin taut. Face needling can also help hydrate the skin by stimulating blood flow to the face, which helps to retain moisture for glowing skin.

Dermatology & Cosmetic acupuncture can be used for: 

  • Anti-ageing
  • Acne
  • Pigmentation
  • Scars 
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis

What to expect
At your initial appointment you will have a consultation with your practitioner to discuss your cosmetic concerns.

Often cosmetic treatments begin with a light facial massage using a rose quartz Gua Sha tool to enhance blood flow and lymphatic drainage. Facial acupuncture involves insertion of very fine needles of the highest standard to either activate or relax motor units in the muscles of the face. Acupuncture may be given to other areas of the body that may assist in improving your general health and wellbeing.

Greatest results are usually expected after 8-12 weekly sessions however differences can usually be noticed after 6 consecutive weeks of treatment. Lines will begin to soften, and facial tissue will feel and look plumper and softer. However, each client is different and therefore length of treatment can vary depending on age, skin type, lifestyle and the state of your health. After this time, maintenance sessions every 6 weeks are recommended.

WHAT IS CHINESE MEDICINE?
Chinese medicine is a holistic medical system meaning that each person is viewed as constitutionally different and various aspects of a patient’s health and lifestyle are taken into consideration. According to Chinese medicine it is understood that the body has the ability to heal itself and treatment is intended to relieve symptoms whilst supporting the body to restore its own vitality. Many chronic symptoms can be alleviated when the root cause is discovered and treated accordingly. 

FERTILITY ACUPUNCTURE

In particular, an acupuncturist may assist with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, ovarian cysts, hormonal imbalances etc. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the quality of the menstrual bleed reflects the health of the uterine lining, which is crucial for implantation; Treatment aims are to increase the thickness and quality of the uterine lining to promote successful implantation. In addition, during treatment, blood flow to the ovaries may be increased, to supply nutrition to the developing follicles and increase the likelihood of ovulation.
