Beauty comes from the inside out. In order for a person to look their best, they must radiate health.
Early on, the Chinese discovered and utilized ways to change the energy flow within the body to initiate the healing process for rejuvenation. They knew that many meridians either begin or end on the face and some have internal branches that go to the face.
Treating the underlying cause of why someone is aging is preferable to masking the symptoms and allowing further decay and dysfunction to continue within the body. Addressing the root of your patient’s condition and restoring her or his health is also an excellent way to build and increase your practice. After a successful treatment series, your patients will return for periodic facial rejuvenation booster sessions as well as regular acupuncture treatments for any other conditions that might arise in the future. In addition, this is an excellent opportunity for you to educate and expose your patients to traditional eastern medicine and other holistic methods of healing.
