ORIGINS OF FACIAL REJUVENATION ACUPUNCTURE (FRA)
Acupuncture has been used to treat skin complaints and reduce the signs of aging for centuries. In fact, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (FRA), also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture, has a recorded history going as far back as China’s Sung Dynasty (960AD – 1270AD), when the Empress and the Emperor’s concubines used it to engender beauty and good health.
WHAT IT ENTAILS
The first session involves a thorough consultation to discuss your medical history, current health issues, your specific goals of treatment, your skin care regime and lifestyle. Treatment can then be personalised according to your concerns and needs followed by strategic insertion of the finest, single-use needles to specific rejuvenating points on the head, face and neck. The local facial acupuncture points are supported by additional general body acupuncture points to create overall balance, addressing any physical, mental or emotional patterns that can be detrimental to achieving one’s experience of rejuvenating health both inside and out.
Both the needles of the face and the body are retained in the skin for up to 25 minutes and then immediately disposed of. Supplementation of acupressure and gentle Tui Na massage to the face, scenar and or LLLt (Low Level Laser therapy) and Russian Treatment Blanket may also be incorporated into the treatment as and when necessary to support treatment.
OPTIMUM TREATMENT ADVICE
Each individual is unique and will respond differently to treatment depending on their unique age and damage already caused to the skin, as well as overall health, diet and lifestyle picture.
A course of treatment consists of 12 sessions to give optimum benefit extending further into the future. The effects of this type of treatment are cumulative and each successive treatment builds upon previous treatment sessions.
Clients are advised to have a series of regular maintenance sessions on a monthly to three monthly basis after the initial course has finished. An additional benefit is that this simultaneously promotes a state of wellbeing and more balanced health on different levels.
We offer a free consultation either by phone or appointment. Please feel free to contact us to discuss any queries you may have and to find out if this is a right type of treatment for your individual needs. FRA is suitable for both women and men.
