TCM Facial Acupuncture

Facial Acupuncture

Facial acupuncture also known as cosmetic acupuncture, is a specialized branch of acupuncture that focuses on improving the appearance of the face and promoting overall health and well-being. Here's some information about TCM facial acupuncture:


Acupuncture Points

In TCM, it's believed that the body's vital energy, known as Qi (pronounced "chee"), flows through specific meridians or pathways. By inserting thin needles into specific acupuncture points on the face and body, the flow of Qi can be rebalanced, which is thought to help with various health issues, including skin concerns.


Benefits of Acupuncture:

1. Anti-Aging: Facial acupuncture is often used for its cosmetic benefits. It's believed to stimulate collagen production, improve blood circulation, and promote the flow of Qi to the face, which can result in a more youthful appearance.


2. Skin Health: It can help with various skin conditions, including acne, dryness, and rosacea.


3. Overall Well-being: TCM facial acupuncture doesn't just focus on the face but also on balancing the body's energy. Ma Kuang's patients often report feeling more relaxed and experiencing improved sleep and mood.



During a facial acupuncture session, thin needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points on the face and body. The number of needles and their placement may vary depending on the individual's needs. The needles are typically left in place for around 20-30 minutes. Some TCM physician may combine this with other therapies like Cupping or Tuina.



The frequency of sessions varies but is often recommended weekly or bi-weekly for a series of treatments, followed by maintenance sessions as needed.



When performed by a licensed TCM physician, facial acupuncture is generally safe. However, there can be some temporary side effects like minor bruising or redness at the needle insertion sites.



Results can vary from person to person. Some individuals report noticeable improvements in skin texture, reduction in wrinkles, and a more radiant complexion. However, it's important to have realistic expectations, as results may not be as dramatic as surgical procedures like facelifts.
