What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture, is a painless, non-surgical procedure that is effective in reducing the signs of aging.  Hair-thin acupuncture needles are inserted in specific locations on the face, ears, neck, hands and feet, based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The disposable needles are placed in energy channels (or meridians) that either begin or end on the face, or that work to modify the energy flow of a person’s body. Dr. Camille, a certified practitioner of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture knows how to influence the signs of aging on the face while simultaneously treating the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a system of Chinese herbal medicine based on balancing the Yin and Yang energies of the body as well as the flow of Qi (energy) through meridian pathways.  The Ancient Orient has long recognized the relationship between mind, body and the environment, in the development of disease.  Chinese herbs  harmonize the internal flow of energy to enhance healing, alleviate pain and improve your overall sense of well-being.

Homeopathic Medicine or Homeopathy

Homeopathy matches a pattern of symptoms characteristic to the patient with minute doses of a substance.  It is based on the principle that like remedies cure like diseases.  These remedies are designed to treat the whole person, not just a few symptoms.  Homeopathic remedies work with the body to help stimulate the body’s self-healing mechanism, and are highly individual in selection.

Botanical Medicine or Herbal Medicine

Botanical Medicine is the use of standardized extracts of medicinal herbs according to documented research on their therapeutic usage.  Standardized extracts ensure exact amounts of the known active ingredients of each herb.  The use of plants for healing dates back to the beginning of civilization and is the foundation of modern pharmacology.  Drugs often contain the same substance as plants but in a much altered state which can cause many side effects.
