Acupuncture, which originated in China more than 2,500 years ago, is regulated in Ontario by the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Influenced by ancient Chinese philosophy, culture, and science and technology, two concepts that are fundamental to TCM are qi (vital energy) and yin and yang (the harmony of opposing forces and elements). When the free flow of qi is maintained, a person is considered healthy; however, exposure to internal or external pathogens may result in the impairment of qi circulation and the development of disease. Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, metal needles to stimulate specific points of the body that reach meridians. While the thin needles cause almost no discomfort, they create stimulation that regulates the flow of qi and restores health to the mind and body, thus balancing the yin and yang.
Your initial one-hour appointment will start with a 15-25 minute intake which consists of a series of questions about your needs, medical history, routine to better understand your physical and mental state. At the end of the intake a TMC treatment plan will be laid and followed by a 30 minute acupuncture session.
Cosmetic acupuncture can be performed at any age and can be utilized for preventive purposes at younger ages as well as for therapeutic or corrective purposes. Facial acupuncture works by piercing the skin with tiny dermal needles, resulting in “positive” microtraumas that increase circulation to the face, and boost the production of collagen and elastin to tighten skin. Cosmetic acupuncture is the ultimate anti-aging treatment because it balances our internal systems while simultaneously boosting the health and appearance of the skin. Each treatment includes Acupuncture, a Facial Tuina Massage and Cupping.
Fire flash Cupping is used for its warming and therapeutic effect. A small cotton torch is used to create a vacuum inside a special cup. Once placed quickly on the surface of the body, the heat and suction softens the muscle and lifts the connective tissue, thereby encouraging blood flow.
