Facial Radiance Comes From Balancing The Body

Written by Emma Tommasini

Cosmetic Acupuncture is also known as Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. It has been practised in China for over 3000 years. First Things First Acupuncturist Wendy Carter recognises that if the body is in a state of health, and balance, the external appearance of the face is more radiant. Therefore it is important to work on balancing the body, as well as treating the face. Wendy uses gentle techniques and tiny needles, especially suitable for the face. The treatment is relatively pain free, with only minimal discomfort felt with some points. Most people barely feel it.

On the first session allow 1 &1/2 hrs. A consultation and full Health assessment is carried out, according to Chinese Medicine Principals. A treatment plan is developed and discussed, including the amount of treatments required to achieve the best results. Then the body balancing and facial treatment will be attended using gentle Acupuncture techniques.

Follow up sessions allow 1 hr a shorter consultation and assessment is carried out prior to the body balancing and facial acupuncture treatment

You will leave the clinic feeling calm, relaxed and revitalised.
