Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing in the world. Originating in China some 5,000 years ago, in the last three decades has it become popular in the whole world. Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles, (sometimes in conjunction with electrical stimulus ), on the body’s surface, in order to influence physiological functioning of the body. Traditional oriental medicine holds that there are as many 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body, which are connected by 20 pathway ( 14 main, 6 secondary ) called meridians. It is influenced by the opposite forces of yin and yang, which represent positive and negative energy and forces in the universe and human body. Acupuncture is believed to keep the balance between yin and yang, thus allowing for the normal flow of qi throughout the body which promotes a natural restoration of the mind and body.
Facial Acupuncture or Acupuncture Facelift is a gentle technique that uses hair-thin painless needles for skin and wrinkle improvement and to reduce the signs of the aging process. Although it is known as a cosmetic procedure, Facial Acupuncture helps the whole body look and feel younger. Unlike other techniques that use heavy chemical and expensive medical equipment, Acupuncture is a natural method that uses the stimulation of needles to bring brightness to one’s complexion and relaxes the stiff muscles while also reducing wrinkles.
Facial Acupuncture is based on the centuries old principles of Oriental Medicine and involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into particular areas of the face, ears, neck, and sometimes hands, trunk, and legs along channels or meridians of energy called Qi.

Acupuncture has numerous approaches around the world, including virtually every Asian nation. However, approximately 600 years ago, the Koreans developed one of the most significant techniques of balancing the meridians. The procedure is virtually unknown to most acupuncturists except in Korea, extreme northern China and in the northern islands of Japan. The technique requires the use of four to eight specific acupuncture points for each meridian that is shown to be either too high or too low. In Chinese acupuncture, the utilization of the single “tonification” or “sedation” point is all that is classically used. Even though simple tonification and sedation will suffice in most cases, for those stubborn conditions that are having great difficulty in establishing a balance, this system is ideal. This technique will balance meridians when other procedures will not.
