I have recently been using acupuncture for beauty purposes-I take REALLY good care of my skin, but at 25 I am starting to notice some fine lines on my forehead. So many people just get Botox these days, but in my quest to live a chemical-free lifestyle I am really trying to avoid that! Injecting chemicals into my face from the age of 25 onward just doesn’t sound appealing to me. Plus, Botox has many side effects. I find that prevention and consistency are key, and facial rejuvenation acupuncture has been an excellent addition to my skincare and overall holistic health routine to look and feel my best.
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture works by stimulating the production of collagen which can reduce wrinkles, diminish fine lines, remove age spots and lift and tone muscles. This non-invasive natural beauty treatments help the skin regain its youthful glow.
I’ve done 3 sessions so far, and I am loving the results- my skin is literally glowing! Everyone has been asking me what I’m doing differently, and honestly the facial acupuncture is the only thing in my routine that’s changed.
What is Acupuncture?
Many people have heard about acupuncture but aren’t actually sure how it works. Acupuncture is the insertion of sterile needles into specific points on the body for many ailments. Originating in China, the theory and practice of acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and is effective for a wide variety of problems. Some of the common ailments it can alleviate include pain, headaches/migraines, digestive issues, allergies, fertility, stress/anxiety, PTSD, and more.
About Holistic Healing Acupuncture
I connected with Amanda at Holistic Healing Acupuncture and have visited her clinic several times for my facial rejuvenation acupuncture. Amanda is a Master Acupuncturist and founder of Holistic Healing. She develops customized treatment plans and focuses on getting to the root cause of health issues instead of just masking the symptoms. I was looking for a great place to get acupuncture and I’m so happy I found Amanda because she aligns with my health values and goals. I really like the vibe of her clinic- she is really dedicated to promoting the holistic principle of honoring the whole person (body, mind and spirit) and all of her treatments and prescriptions are plant based, all natural and chemical free. In addition to facial acupuncture, Amanda does a full analysis and will use it to determine any underlying imbalances in your body that affect your skin. As for me, I struggle with sleep especially when my stress levels increase from work which causes me to have dark circles around my eyes. During my consult Amanda noticed this and explained how stress can affect my body and skin complexion. She then added acupuncture points on my ears to help me relax and prescribed me a natural herbal formula to reduce the dark circles- it worked wonders! The clinic is conveniently located in River Oaks on Shepherd, and it’s very easy to make an appointment online (or even message them on Instagram, they are super responsive!)
