We all strive to look our best no matter what our age or status. As women, we are always comparing ourselves to pictures on magazine covers, TV or movie personalities. We feel great pressure to live up to unrealistic expectations concerning our appearance. Real beauty comes from within and shines out.
We’ve all been told “beauty is only skin deep” but I would beg to differ. Health of the body, mind and spirit create “real” beauty and it comes from within not the other way around.
As an acupuncturist and a woman, I became interested in the specialty of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. It is a unique way to use acupuncture to enhance the facial appearance by stimulating muscle tissue and adding life force (Qi) to the channels of energy in the face.
Over many years of performing this procedure I have watched the subtle changes that it can produce; the lift of an eyebrow, the lessening of those pesky lines between the eyebrows and around the mouth.
Some of the things I have observed have been very different and sometimes surprising for my clients; the dramatic improvement of chronic sinus problems, the relief of anxiety, the decreased stresses of daily life, relief of neck, shoulder and knee pain.
Because, you see, this treatment is treating the whole person inside and out not just their appearance. Can Botox do that?
