The world of antiaging is a daunting place to make a decision regarding health and beauty. Most of the general public does not even know where to begin. Those of us, who are health conscious try to eat more organic and natural whole foods, exercise and take the appropriate supplements our bodies require for optimal health. Beyond this basic care we also have a need for maintaining our beauty for as long as we can.
Because the world we live in has a fast food mentality where instant gratification is king, most of us naturally want the quick fix when we start to look our age. The realization that we need to do something about how we look comes to us almost always too late.
So then we end up in the surgeons’ chair being asked “so tell me…….what don’t you like about yourself?”We must remember that it took many decades to get the face we have and a quick fix is not a viable option. Even if we opt for the surgical facelift it does not come quickly, or without risk and a longer recoup time than expected.
Still we yearn for our younger selves and wonder just how we may go about achieving out desired result. While alternative forms of facial rejuvenation are plentiful none really get to the root of the issue. Many function like Band-Aids and require constant maintenance. However the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System™ is actually a system that may fit this tall order. The Mei Zen system treats facial and abdominal skin internally as well as externally. This system provides baseline nutrition and supplement guidelines to create core health before the facial or abdominal acupuncture sessions are performed. The main premise being that a significant change will not be made unless core qi (energy) is adequate and in harmonious balance, which translates to health. All of our ability to develop and then maintain collagen and elastin depends upon our core health. The system is part of a wellness protocol that enables the patient (under the supervision of an Acupuncture Physician) to be counseled with nutrition, supplementation, treated with acupuncture and when core health is achieved then the facial or abdominal treatment is performed.
The sessions are 2 times per week for five weeks. The schedule is very strictly adhered to, treatments are two days apart except for weekends. This schedule enables the system developers to claim 3-5 year longevity on the treatments. The abdominal treatment creates a loss in inches while the two separate facial treatments diminish fine lines and wrinkles as well as tone sagging jowls.
A study in The Journal of Clinical Acupuncture states that, with cosmetic acupuncture, 90% of clients have marked improvement in their faces and experience an overall rejuvenation that is not confined to the face. This is an excellent reason to call Cosmetic Acupuncture procedures “Anti-Aging Treatments” because they contribute to overall health in a positive way. Patients will look and feel younger. Outward beauty and youthful appearance will be the result of inner fitness.
Cosmetic acupuncture is less expensive and safer than other modern procedures.
Since the Family Healing Center already offers a microcurent no- needle facial rejuvenation the combination of the two treatments will also be offered.
