CONSTITUTIONAL FACIAL ACUPUNCTURE™
I believe we can look (and feel!) youthful and radiant at any age, without masking our life experience or limiting our self-expression – and without the use of toxins. Authentic beauty works from the inside out. Constitutional Facial Acupuncture™ can stimulates collagen production and blood flow to the face, and it also addresses factors across the whole body that may contribute to us looking tired, stressed, or dull.
Beyond the minimizing of lines and wrinkles in the face, Constitutional Facial Acupuncture™ can help…
• improve facial tone
• alleviate acne, rosacea and amplify skin clarity
• reduce scar lines
• balance hormone levels
• support better sleep, relaxation, and energy levels
• smooth and brighten the skin
• bring forth confidence and joy
• let your face reflect your most vibrant, radiant, authentic self.
