Described by THE TIMES as a “viable alternative to cosmetic surgery”, the “acupuncture facelift” is the most recent non-invasive procedure designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improving the overall appearance of the skin. Based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, it helps the whole body to look and feel younger by addressing the physical, mental and emotional patterns that cause disease and contribute to the aging process.
The use of Acupuncture to slow the visible effects of aging began in China in the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD). In traditional Chinese medicine, it is known as ‘Chinese Medical Cosmetology’. Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture showed that of 300 test cases who received facial rejuvenation, 90% showed results after one course of treatments.
Nicole was trained in Calgary under Mary Elizabeth Wakefield in the trademarked Constitutional Facial Acupuncture course. Constitutional Facial Acupuncture is a safe, painless and effective treatment for renewing the face as well as the whole body. Fine lines may be entirely erased, deeper lines reduced and bags around neck and eyes firmed.
Fine needles are placed at a variety of acupuncture points on the face, neck and around the eyes to stimulate the body’s natural energies, or Qi.
Since muscle groups are addressed as well the acupuncture points, the face lifts itself, via the acupuncture points, through the muscles’ toning and tightening action. The needles also stimulate blood and circulation, which improves facial colour.
Nicole treats the body as a whole…
“I will always deal with the person as a whole when giving this Facial treatment. It is about bringing the body into balance. If a person’s digestion or immune system for instance is ailing, then that will show up on the face and within the complexion.
When the body comes back into balance that will also reveal itself on the face… leaving a brightness, firmness and healthful glow.”
Why does Nicole’s Facial Rejuvenation treatment bring such great results?
Nicole combines the special Facial Acupuncture training with the extraordinary Facial Cupping Therapy. This is what brings in such noticeable results faster that also last longer. Combining the top two Natural Facial modalities is what sets her treatments apart.
