Introducing Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture Sessions

You’ve seen all the articles, tv shows, and social media videos of the newest skincare craze- “Cosmetic Acupuncture”. You’ve seen the fancy tools made of jade, the laser machines, & the pics of patients with needles all over there face. But what is Cosmetic Acupuncture really?
Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture (AKA Acu-Lift, Acupuncture Facial, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture) is a specialty form of acupuncture that centers around internal health and external radiance.

Cosmetic Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into the face, as well as other techniques such as micro-current laser therapy, facial cupping & massage, jade-rolling, micro-dermabrasion, & more
Cosmetic acupuncture improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and puffy eyes, while decreasing the severity of a variety of skin conditions including acne and rosacea, while improving muscle tone in cases of muscle paralysis, just to name a few.

With a series of treatments, facial acupuncture is very rejuvenating to the face and leads to long lasting effects of improved skin tone and appearance, as well as improved muscle function and strength. It’s important to note that Cosmetic Acupuncture is as much about internal health as it is about external radiance. I work with you to balance your organs and address the root cause of your skin concerns. And the treatment goes beyond the fancy tools used in your session. I help you figure out the right foods to consume and the right herbs to supplement as well.

Your initial evaluation includes a Chinese Medicine evaluation of your face & overall Health, and a yummy beautifying & relaxing treatment.

Most patients notice instant changes in their skin's appearance immediately after treatment. But, Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture does require a series of treatments to maintain this improvement, like Full body Acupuncture sessions or any other Cosmetic service.

Upcoming Event: Herbal Medicine Workshop

You are invited to an interactive experience where you will learn about herbs and then formulate your own medicinal mixture, under the guidance of Naturopathic Doctor, Acupuncturist, and Herbalist, Dr. Naika of blog, 'Naika in Balance".

This workshop is inspired by my "Haitian Treasures" blog series, where I share knowledge about the medicinal and socio-cultural elements of herbs commonly used by Haitians, the Haitian Diaspora, and the greater Afro-Caribbean community. 

In the first half of this 2 hour workshop, we'll go on an in depth exploration of the herbs we'll be using in the second half. We will discuss the medicinal, and socio-cultural properties of the herbs, in addition to the clinical scientific research behind them, what they are used for, and how to use them. The material will be presented in a way that everyone can understand and follow. The herbs selected for this workshop are helpful for overall health maintenance, including but not limited to, detoxification, mood support, digestive health, etc.

During the second half of the workshop, you will have the opportunity to connect with the herbs even deeper and formulate your own herbal concoctions based on your individual needs and desires.  I will guide you through the process of creating your own medicinal mix. All materials will be provided for you, so just show up ready and willing to learn and to explore. 

Recommended that you bring pen and paper to take notes!

Great music will be playing during the second half.
Incense will be burning to create a lovey aroma.
The space is colorful, bright, and inviting.

Come unwind.
Come vibe.
Come release.
Come as you are.

Event cost: $35
Space is limited to create an intimate experience, so kindly RSVP by April 28th.
