Cosmetic acupuncture is often referred to as a “non-surgical facelift” due to its dramatic results and proven effectiveness, growing increasingly popular, especially among Hollywood celebrities. Cosmetic acupuncture is a safe treatment used to naturally reduce the signs of aging. Miniature sterile needles are inserted along wrinkle and frown lines to firm skin and promote a healthy, youthful complexion.

CUPPING WITH ACUPUNCTURE
Cupping is a painless therapy using suction and negative pressure to loosen muscles, promoting pain reduction and healing. It can be used for a variety of conditions such as back, neck, leg, and shoulder pain, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite, in addition to various lung conditions like asthma, cough, and the common cold. For weight loss and cellulite treatments, oil is first applied to the skin, and then the cups are moved up and down the surrounding area. Although cupping is not painful, it may leave marks that resemble bruises that disappear after a few days. Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. It is thought to affect tissues up to four inches deep from the external skin thereby releasing toxins and clearing blockages and invigorating veins and arteries in that area.
