📷Franca Bartella-Toronto: Why are so many celebrities like Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna and Dr. Oz raving about Cosmetic Acupuncture? Women worldwide are saying NO to Botox and derma fillers and are opting for Traditional Chinese Medicine referred to as (TCM). This method of rejuvenation is gaining popularity all over the world.
Mai Pham of Mai Medical Health Centre is a licensed acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medical practitioner practicing for over 10 years specializing in programs for cosmetic acupuncture and women’s health. Growing up in Vietnam her family and ancestors practiced Traditional Chinese Medicine for generations. Mai states “more and more women are turning away from new age methods of youth treatments and gearing towards old age Chinese medicine for overall well being, stimulating the body to heal itself. There are many new trends for a youthful appearance and non aging skin treatments out there. Some are superficial and some invasive and harmful, especially those who are considering a surgical facelift, but more women are turning down the knife and turning instead to these tiny little needles”. Mai Pham’s expertise and balancing methods have many women ranging from all ages raving about well health and brightening skin results.
In previous years people chose conventional medicine first and then TCM as a last option and now more people are turning to Traditional Chinese Medicine first for greater results with optimal health benefits. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging known as Facial Rejuvenation referred often as an “Acupuncture Face-lift”. More women are devoting themselves to the principles of oriental medicine and the insertion of hair thin needles into particular areas of the face, ears, neck or body and along channels of meridians of energy. The Chinese discovered that many meridians either begin or end on the face and with stimulation and focus on particular areas fine lines may be entirely eliminated as well as deeper wrinkles diminished. Cosmetic Acupuncture may erase as many as five to fifteen years from the face in as little as 5-10 treatments. TCM treats the person from the inside and strengthens one’s energy and inner healing and places importance on prevention.
While not a replacement for surgery Acupuncture facial rejuvenation is a safe alternative and is far less costly and is virtually painless with no side effects. Cosmetic Acupuncture creates more blood circulation where thereby nourishing and oxygenating the skin and enabling the body to produce more collagen. Cosmetic Acupuncture is less expensive healthier and safer than modern costly treatments guiding the body back into balance.
