Facial Rejuvenation

Facial rejuvenation with Chinese Medicine

Anti-ageing therapy is not a new phenomenon. It has been around for centuries. Cleopatra is renowned for bathing in milk and honey. The Chinese Empress Dowager Cixi was famous for her obsession with preserving a youthful complexion with the jade roller and consuming ginseng and pearl powder. There are antidotes of beauty routines of the Chinese aristocrats involving pearl powder, flower petals, jade and honey.

Facial rejuvenation is a style of treatment that aims to rejuvenate the face by nourishing the Precious essence – known in Chinese as jing.

In the Chinese medicine, Precious Essence is prenatal energy, the energy that conveys the gifts of regeneration of the body, tissue elasticity and strength. Precious Essence is energy worth protecting, as one of its functions is to maintain youth, and there is only so much of it.

If you imagine a well of water. When we are born this well might be full. Throughout our lives the water of this well is depleted, used up as we live a full life without protecting and replenishing the well. Once the well is empty, there are no more stores of energy to fall back on and our body ages. Some people use this precious store up quickly, whereas others tend to preserve this energy and add to it.

Those who live wisely by protecting their Precious Essence may live long lives without wrinkles,  maintaining a youthful appearance. The Chinese are renowned for their longevity practices and youthful appearance.

Mei Hua Chinese Medicine Clinic offers facial rejuvenation packages.

Acupuncture facial rejuvenation

Acupuncture may offer a "facelift" that's quite effective. By stimulating areas in the face and body, energy is unblocked, and the face looks more youthful and the function of the whole body is improved. Fine lines are often erased, deeper wrinkles may become less apparent, and the skin glows.

The rule of thumb is that it takes 10 - 12 treatments to rejuvenate or strengthen the face and body. Some people say they don't feel a thing after acupuncture, but the effect is cumulative. In other words, the energy from each treatment is retained by the organ system. And if it is not dissipated by one's lifestyle, it continues to build.

Facial rejuvenation with acupuncture and Chinese herbs is a course of 12 treatments, 2 times a week.

Chinese herbs

One of the wonderful things about Chinese herbs is they can adjust the imbalances in the body. If you feel too hot or cold, or even ‘heavy’ there are herbs that adjust the inner thermostat so to speak. When the body is out of balance it is not working.
