Your Fabulous Face: Cosmetic Acupuncture A Cosmetic Acupuncture “Face Lift” is an effective way to remove fine lines and wrinkles from the face. It stimulates and tones sagging and aging skin, while removing toxins and encouraging cell reproduction. It can eliminate dark circles under the eyes and reduce sagging or puffy eyelids and double chins. It will help rejuvenate facial tissue by increasing circulation to the area and stimulate collagen production, thereby moisturizing the face, resulting in a healthy glowing complexion. The signs of aging are reduced by revitalizing the skin and providing a more youthful look to the face. As an added benefit, Cosmetic Acupuncture can also increase your own natural energy, or “Chi” force, providing you with a complete sense of relaxation and rejuvenation. Results may be noticeable after the first treatment and can last 3-5 years with monthly maintenance.
Your Fabulous Face: Non-surgical Face Lifting Non-surgical face lifting involves the use of a TENS machine to deliver a mild electrical stimulus to the muscles of the face and neck, tonifying them, causing them to firm up and lift the sagging skin. It is very relaxing and patients feel radiant after just one treatment!! The technique also improves circulation to the skin and underlying tissue and triggers several acupuncture points that promote overall health. This is one of the techniques demonstrated on the Oprah show.
Your Fabulous Face: Alpha Hydroxy Fruit Peels The professional strength alpha hydroxy fruit peel dissolves pore clogging material on the skin, allowing the skin to drain better which results in a number of benefits. By removing the dead layer of cells on the skin surface, the complexion has a smoother texture, more uniform colour, decreased blemishes and diminished fine lines and wrinkles. Continued use can actually cause the top layer of living cells to become plumper and softer, creating a more youthful, tightening of the skin.

NAET: Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique is a revolutionary treatment system based on the principles of chiropractic, acupuncture and applied kinesiology (muscle response testing). NAET uses muscle response testing to indicate imbalances in the body caused by allergens. The NAET treatment stimulates acupuncture points along the spine while the patient is holding an allergen. Acupuncture is then performed to stabilize the treatment. The substance must then be completely avoided for 25 hours following the treatment for best results. Allergens are treated and cleared one at a time in a specific sequence. Individuals who are highly sensitive may sometimes require many treatments.
