As more people seek natural alternatives to plastic surgery and Botox, Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture (FRA) is becoming more popular than ever, just as Acupuncture’s notoriety increases in the West. After all, beauty is only skin deep, but inner-health, paramount in providing outer-health, which has always been Acupuncture’s holistic approach – an ideal balance of mind, body and spirit. The attractive “rosy glow” of a healthy person’s skin is indicative of their general constitution. Comparisons to facelifts can be dangerous as the results of FRA are far more subtle but wide-reaching, which is another reason for it’s popularity. Here are some it’s benefits;
- fine lines and wrinkles can be minimised
- sagging facial skin can be firmer
- decreased puffiness around the eyes
- increased circulation, especially to the face, but overall,
which gives the complexion more radiance & better skin tone.
- improvement to sleep and general mood
- enhanced lymphatic drainage
Each treatment lasts 90 minutes – tiny, sterile, disposable needles are used on the face, ears & head and smaller than usual ones are used on the body too. Finally, Traditional Chinese Massage (Tui Na) on the face and neck is also incorporated into this treatment package and Roz uses organic skincare oils from Neal’s Yard Remedies. 6 weekly treatments are recommended for optimum results but if unsure, try one session to see the difference.
