    Cosmetic Acupuncture also known as Acu-Facial is non-surgical cosmetic procedure. This a natural and comprehensive approach is designed to restore, rejuvenate and relax tired skin cells.  Drawn from the ancient texts of Chinese medicine, the Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture is relatively painless, natural technique.  Small, less than hair-width acupuncture needles are placed in a precise configuration just under the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.  It is an excellent natural alternative to a cosmetic surgery face lift and botox treatments. The results of cosmetic acupuncture anti-aging treatments reflect not only a change in external appearance, but also an improvement in total body wellness.  More radiant, beautiful looking skin.

    Clients can expect disappearance of fine lines, smoothing of deep lines, fading of age spots, More toned facial muscles, Enhanced overall appearance and health. Allows healthy “breathing” of the skin, increasing the skin’s protective ability to ward off infections and clogged pores.

  • Acupuncture Injection

    Acupuncture Injection Therapy (AIT) is the injection of sterile organic substances such as herbal extracts, homeopathic medicines (FDA approved), vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, by hypodermic needle into specific acupuncture points.

    Point injection therapy utilizes the injection of liquid medicine into acupuncture points to prevent or treat diseases.  It is one of the more integrated treatment strategies available to us in the 21stcentury.  Not only does it combine the actions of acupuncture with the pharmacological effect of Chinese medicinal herbs or biomedical pharmaceuticals, it also uses techniques at acupuncture point locations to produce successful clinical outcomes.

    Acupuncture injections may be used to treat stubborn conditions, especially pain, not responding well to acupuncture, herbal medicine and exercise.  Clinically we have found excellent results with homeopathic injections of Traumeel and Zeel for joint pain, neck pain, arthritis, and lower back pain.  Injectable solutions come in single-use sterile vials, and are completely safe with subcutaneous injection.  Adverse effects are limited to local bruising and discomfort following the injections.

    Recent research indicates Traumeel injections are as effective for pain as conventional treatments including narcotic painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications.  Animal studies indicate Traumeel injections seem to act by significantly speeding up the healing process instead of blocking the development of edema (swelling) from the beginning (for an injury).  Moreover, its effect cannot be considered as the ‘sum’ of its active components and probably a synergistic interaction occurs to determine the final effect.

  • Moxibustion

    Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing.  Moxibustion has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years; in fact, the actual Chinese character for acupuncture, translated literally, means “acupuncture-moxibustion.”  The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of traditional Chinese medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of qi, and maintain general health.  It is a form of a heat treatment which stimulates specific acupuncture points of the body.

  • Cupping

    Traditionally, in ancient China, cupping was a form of a healing therapy that consisted of placing glass, plastic or metal cups on the skin with vacuum suction.

    According to the principles of Chinese medicine, this therapy increases blood flow to the surface of the skin removing disease causing toxins.  Apart from this, it helps in the curing of many conditions, such as the common cold, bronchitis and pneumonia.  It is also beneficial for various pains, such as in the neck, shoulder and back.  Cupping involves applying the cups to acupuncture points on the meridians to stimulate circulation and relieve swelling.
