Your first session will involve an overall Traditional Chinese Medicine health assessment to determine any areas of imbalance. Once the treatment begins many needles will be inserted into the face and body, however, these needles are extremely fine and inserted in such a gentle manner that clients find it incredibly relaxing, often falling asleep during the treatment. This protocol requires 10-15 sessions and treatments should be twice a week for the first three weeks, then weekly treatments for the following sessions. It is important to complete all sessions to achieve the full effect and long-lasting results. While many people notice some results after their first treatment, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has a cumulative effect with the best improvement usually noticed around the seventh treatment. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 4-6 weeks to maintain best results, with the entire protocol being repeated every 3-5 years.

As with any acupuncture treatment performed by a qualified and registered practitioner, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is extremely safe. Since the face is a highly vascular area very slight bleeding and mild bruising may occur, however, we take several precautions to reduce or eliminate these effects. Caution must be used with certain potentially serious health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, migraines and others, so please advise us if you have any health conditions before booking. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture cannot be performed during pregnancy, however, traditional acupuncture can be very beneficial.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM is a healing art based primarily on philosophy as well as 5,000 years of historical clinical practice. The elemental philosophy is based on the theory of yin and yang, which represents balance. Yin represents qualities such as cold and dampness, internal, rest, fluids, darkness and night. Yang represents qualities of heat and dryness, external, movement, fire, brightness and daytime.

For example, an individual with a yin condition might be quiet and shy with a soft voice. They often have a pale complexion and feel cold. An individual with a yang constitution might be energetic and constantly on the go. They are likely to be extroverted, often with a loud voice, and tend to be talkative. They will usually feel hot, sweat easily and have a reddish complexion. Yin and yang are constantly interacting. For example, a fever (yang) may suddenly develop into chills (yin). The intention is not to be primarily yin or yang, but to have balance of the two.

Another philosophy of TCM is that disease is a direct result of a blockage or deficiency of the body’s vital energy, known as “qi” (pronounced “chee”). Qi is the source of all movement and energy within the body. It governs all movements such as running, talking, breathing, your heart beating, and more. There are various types of qi. For example, your wei qi works in a similar manner to your immune system, protecting your body against disease, while your gu qi controls digestive activities.

Qi flows along pathways in the body known as meridians, similar to the concept of blood vessels. There are twelve primary meridians, each corresponding to the major organs of the body. Examples include the lung meridian, the liver meridian, and the kidney meridian. A disturbance or blockage of the flow of qi or blood along these meridians will result in a diseased state.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Chinese Acupuncture:

Chinese acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely fine needles at specific points along these meridians to alleviate blockages, revitalize the vital energy (qi) of the body, and stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. Acupuncture is effective because it addresses the root cause of an illness in addition to alleviating the symptoms of the disease. Since it treats the root of disease, effects are not always immediate. It can often take 3-4 sessions before results are noticeable, and can take 8-12 sessions to achieve long-term results in some chronic ailments. Treatments should be on a weekly basis for best results.

What to expect at your first visit:

The first visit with a Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist is approximately 60-75 minutes in length. It is best to have all the intake forms filled out prior to the appointment.
During the first visit the Acupuncturist will try to get as complete a picture of your health as possible, through extensive discussion of your past and current health, as well as your family health history, and your current lifestyle factors.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture treats the whole person through individualized treatment, therefore it is very important for them to understand not only physical aspects of one’s health status, but also the mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors that contribute to illness.
Based on a Traditional Chinese Medicine Diagnosis, you will receive a treatment of Acupuncture, which involves the insertion of surgical steel, sterilized, one time use fine needles at points located on various points of the body. Based on the pattern of disease you may benefit from additional therapies such as cupping therapy, heat therapy, Chinese medical diet therapy, lifestyle counselling and Chinese Herbal therapy. You will be asked to monitor your symptoms between visits and report to the Acupuncturist any changes on the next visit.
It is suggested to wear loose fitting clothing to your appointment to allow for access to certain points on the body.

What to expect at subsequent visits with your Acupuncturist:

Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture treatments are individualized and customized to the patient’s health concerns and goals. Frequency and number of visits will be suggested and may change depending on the response to treatment. The aim of Acupuncture is to treat the root cause of disease, by identifying and removing the cause of the illness, rather than suppressing its symptoms. Acupuncture stimulates the natural healing process of the body with minimal side effects; however, any concerns should be discussed with the Acupuncturists.
Throughout subsequent visits, which will be approx. 45 minutes in length, your Acupuncturist will follow-up with your treatment plan and adjust and alter it where necessary.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the insertion of fine sterile needles on points located on the body. These points activate a healing process within the body. Acupuncture treatments performed by a Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner are designed to treat the body holistically addressing the root cause of the health issue. The combinations of these points are as a result of a diagnosis intended to treat a pattern of disharmony.

Does Acupuncture hurt?

The feeling you may experience upon insertion of the Acupuncture needle is similar to that of a mosquito bite. Once the needle is tapped into the skin most people don’t feel anything.

Will I feel anything after the treatment?

You may experience a euphoric or calm feeling and be very relaxed. Sometimes you may feel tired in which it is recommended you rest, otherwise you can resume regular activity after a treatment.

What do I wear to treatment?

It is suggested you wear loose fitting clothing, shorts or athletic wear to feel comfortable during your treatment. In order to access some points on the body you may need to remove or adjust your clothing. You will be given a gown or sheet to drape across you in these cases. At all times you should feel comfortable with your treatment and any concerns should be discussed with your practitioner.

How many Acupuncture treatments will I need?

This is individualized to each person. Some health issues take fewer treatments to resolve and others take several treatments to resolve. Your Acupuncturist can offer guidelines on your treatment frequency. Acupuncture treatments are cumulative and weekly visits may be suggested in the beginning. As symptoms become lessened a longer duration would be suggested between visits.
