“I am a 46-year-old man and I have been struggling with Rosacea for years. I had tried just about everything. I have been to doctors, naturopaths, and acupuncturists. I was frustrated that nothing I did seemed to help. It was difficult to go out and know people are wondering why my face is so red. I have never had a facial and was hesitant to have facial acupuncture. I met with Kimberly and felt immediately reassured that this was a treatment for men too. After my first treatment the redness in my face was almost gone. I did a series of 10 sessions and not only is my Rosacea healed, many of my facial lines also disappeared. I definitely have my confidence back!”Male
“I am a 55-year-old woman. I am active and basically healthy. I have tried acupuncture in the past for wellness and always had good results. I was feeling the creep of age and really wanted to look & feel fresher. I explored Botox and even had a consultation for a facelift. I was frankly scared of surgery & its permanent results. And I didn’t like the mask-like look people had after Botox, or the fact it was a toxin. A friend suggested I speak with Kimberly and I am so glad I did, she is brilliant! I went in for a consultation and initial treatment and I immediately noticed results. After just one 12 week package, I saw improvements in the deep lines on my forehead, my eyes were no longer puffy, my cheeks and mouth were lifted, and my age spots had practically disappeared. Kimberly’s calm, gentle manner made each treatment relaxing & nourishing. And I loved the steam, herbal mask, massage, and essential oils.”Woman
Constitutional Facial Acupuncture™ involves the patient in an organic process, in which a series of treatments is necessary to achieve maximal effect. After an initial session, practitioner evaluates the patient’s response, and then can determine the number of followup
visits that will be required: After this evaluation, and taking into consideration other variables such as stress, diet, lifestyle, genetic inheritance, proper digestion and elimination, sleep, emotional balance, and age, the following durations of treatment are customarily recommended:
Usually 12-15 treatments; 20 treatments for smokers or people whose skin tends to sag, i.e., who manifest jowls, “turkey wattles,” droopy eyes, etc.
Treatment Timeline: Ideally 2 times a week (if possible), or 1 treatment per week. Sessions last approximately 90min.
Maintenance Treatments: Within the normal parameters of aging, the completion of a series of treatments should be effective.
To ensure the persistence of the results, ongoing maintenance treatments are recommended: Every 2 weeks for 2 months following the completion of a treatment series, then once a month for an indefinite amount of time; Of course, you can embark upon a subsequent series of treatments after giving a week’s rest
The Use of Chinese Herbs
The Constitutional Facial Acupuncture™ treatment protocol incorporates Chinese herbal masks, poultices and moisturizers. Jade rollers, which enhance blood circulation, remove fine lines and age spots, and prevent premature aging, are used to massage moisturizer into the skin. The ancient empresses of China used jade as a precious stone to be worn, not only around their necks, but also to attract yin and nourishment into their skin. The stone served a double purpose of promoting beauty and for magical protection. Other modalities are also incorporated tailored to your needs.
In addition, I am a licensed herbalist with special training in Japanese Kampo Herbal Medicine. Herbal evaluation is included in each treatment & herbal medicine employed when it can improve balance to the body.
Short and Long-Term Effects of Facial Acupuncture
After the first treatment, one usually observes an increased glow to the complexion, the result of increased Qi and blood flow to the face. The person’s face appears more “open”, there is a clarity in the eyes (“clear Shen”), and the patient appears to be more rested; wrinkles start to lessen and the skin appears more toned.
A significant difference in appearance is often seen following the 5th to 7th treatments; even more marked changes in wrinkles, skin tone, etc. The impression of relaxation and calm is more pronounced; you may appear as if you have returned from vacation. Lifting of the jowls, neck and the eyes has begun and is usually noticeable. With continuing treatment, constitutional issues like digestive complaints have been ameliorated or subsided.
By the end of a series, the patient should look and feel 5-15 years younger. These results may vary slightly, depending upon how well you have taken care of yourself during the process, and afterward. At this stage, booster treatments provide ongoing support within a normal process of aging.
