Cosmetic acupuncture Torquay Surfcoast with Shura Ford.
Cosmetic acupuncture, also known as facial rejuvenation, involves acupuncture and Chinese medicine principles. Needling the face encourages the flow of Qi and Xue to the face and promotes their circulation. Chinese medicine philosophy states that a persons spirit or Shen resides in their heart and that the heart manifests in the complexion. The Shen is the home of a persons emotional, mental and spiritual state and it is said that if the heart and Shen are strong there will be a rosy and lustrous complexion.
What can I expect?
The first step of a cosmetic acupuncture session is to arrange a consultation to discover your individual skin concerns.
