In the quest to maintain a youthful, beautiful appearance, we go on diets, apply creams, buy books, join groups, and work out at gyms. For some people, this is enough. Many of us, though, still struggle with our appearance. Some people turn to radical measures like face lifts, liposuction, and tummy tucks to get the appearance they desire. These procedures are painful, expensive and risky, and do nothing to address the underlying causes of an aging or flabby appearance, such as poor circulation, poor digestion, and poor muscle tone.
We all long for transformation. We all want to feel rejuvenated and regenerated and renewed. Many of us have made resolutions, pledges, or even vows to finally get fit, lose weight, or improve our health and appearance. Help in keeping our promises can come from what is, for many, an unexpected source: acupuncture and Oriental medicine.
For many people who would like to improve their appearance but who don’t want to undergo surgery, acupuncture can provide a pain-free, less invasive alternative to surgery that can simultaneously reduce the signs of aging, curb your appetite, and improve muscle tone, digestion, and overall your health.
In fact, a traditional acupuncture physician may just be the best friend that we could have in our quest to become fit and firm. Far from being limited to treating the sports-related injuries and pain that often happen as we take up an new exercise program, acupuncturist can help reduce stress, manage weight, support metabolism, increase energy, and even dramatically reduce the signs of aging, rapidly, painlessly, and without surgery or drugs.
A Western Facelift involves local anesthetic, incisions, and a lengthy recovery process. Acupuncture face lifts promise the same results with much less trauma, but it comes with a catch: you may feel better all over instead of just your face!
The needles may not even be inserted in your face. If you have a problem that is causing an overall lack of skin tone, your OMD may work on that and you will discover your tone is better all over your body, not just your face. What you show is up to you!
With each successive acupuncture therapy, patients typically notice gradual improvement of their energy levels and skin tone.
