Our definition of Cosmetic Acupuncture:
The use of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory and techniques, to enhance well-being and lifestyle in order to promote and maintain a reduction of the signs of ageing.
Cosmetic acupuncture is the use of a selection of fine needles in the face and body to improve circulation locally and improve the body’s homeostasis at a systemic level. There is an established evidence base to show that ‘stress’ significantly affects healing. The healing ‘cascade’ has a significant relationship with cellular health, ageing and disease prevention.
