Here, she shares with us how acupuncture can slow down the aging process:
Most of us perceive aging as a Beast: ugly, invasive and haunting. Wrinkles, sagging skin and brown liver spots inhibiting your true beauty? Have you been afraid to go under the knife for fear of a disastrous, irreversible, new you? Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments can reverse aging, minimize the appearance of wrinkles and strengthens muscles to improve tone and lift sagging skin. Hollywood has taken hold and many celebrities are embracing the natural, youthful solution for anti-aging.
Treatments include: acupuncture, electrical stimulation, personalized herbal medicine and Vitamin C anti-aging serum applied topically to your skin. The treatment is deeply relaxing and costs between $135 – $200 per session. Ten sessions are recommended annually.
Why is this method of anti-aging treatment so effective? Acupuncture facilitates blood circulation, builds collagen and strengthens muscles all of which are essential for reversing the signs of aging. The results can be so dramatic that one of my patients stopped hiding in her home because of her premature aging. Prior to Cosmetic Acupuncture people kept asking her if her husband was her nephew! She was desperate to feel better and look younger. Within three Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments the results were life changing. She looks years younger, her depression has lifted and people are noticing the youthful changes in her face and her skin on her arms, legs and chest.
The secret is simple: acupuncture treats the root of the aging problem that manifests internally in the body and reflects externally in the skin. Every patient’s treatment is individualized based on their specific pattern causing premature aging. One woman’s excessive wrinkles could be from blood deficiency that doesn’t show up on lab reports robbing her skin of vitality and nourishment. For the patient above her problem was internal dryness. Her case was so severe it was drying her skin, causing deep cracks resulting in prematurely aging her entire body and constipation. Part of the treatment protocol included nourishing fluids internally to properly hydrate her, resulting in plumped skin, less wrinkles and smoother skin. The nourishment also healed her internally as well absolved her depression and regulated her digestion after 40 years of chronic constipation.
Aging is inevitable. Doing it gracefully is possible. The beast can be tamed to allow your inner beauty to shine.
