Acupuncture is an ancient medical system which has been proven to be a safe and effective method of health care. By activating the body's own natural healing abilities, acupuncture can both preserve and restore health and wellness, as it simultaneously addresses both a condition and its root cause.
Cupping is a powerful detoxifying, pain relieving and energy building technique. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure and many other conditions). Cupping is used to relieve back pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, and rheumatism among other disorders.
Moxibustion treats and prevents diseases by applying heat to points or certain locations of the human body. The heat warms the Qi and Blood in the channels and is, therefore, useful in the treatment of disease and maintenance of health. The material used is mainly “moxa wool” (Artemisa Vulgaris which is a species of chrysanthemum) in the form of a cone or stick. For centuries, moxibustion and acupuncture have been combined in clinical practice to successfully treat common illnesses.
Herbal Medicine is an extraordinarily valuable resource for healing that has also been in existence for thousands of years. Much like acupuncture, herbal supplements possess the ability to promote the body’s natural functions while addressing the root cause of imbalance and disease.
Acupuncture Point Injection
Acupuncture point injection therapy involves the injection of small amounts of saline solution, and homeopathic remedies, to activate the acupuncture point for a longer period of time enhancing the therapeutic effect in the treated area.
Saline solution is an isotonic solution containing the same salt concentrations as our cells, blood and interstitial fluid (the fluid between our cells). In cases of chronic illness or acute injury, the interstitial fluid may become congested with the waste products of inflammation from injured tissue, preventing the efficient nutrient and waste product transfer between the cells and the bloodstream. The injection of saline may improve the quality of the interstitial fluid allowing nutrient and waste product transfer between the cells and bloodstream to occur efficiently again. Saline, being pH neutral, may have its own particular effects on alkalizing local connective tissues, and possibly optimizing conditions for the body's self-healing mechanisms.
Cosmetic acupuncture represents a safe and side-effect free holistic to surgical facelifts. This superficial needle insertion will increase local circulation to the face muscles while stimulating collagen production and elasticity, giving firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion. Typical results include the disappearance of fine facial expression lines and a visible reduction of deeper ones, less sagginess, and lifting of “droopy” eyelids.
Vitamin & Lipotropic injection for Health & Wellness: Oral vs. Injected Vitamins
Oral vitamin supplements have to go through the long process of digestion before they’re absorbed into the bloodstream. Additionally, your body absorbs the full amount of Vitamin injected, unlike supplements, which, after digestion, only deliver a portion of the dose they originally contained.
Glutathione, Zinc Sulfate, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It's involved in many body functions, including the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the proper functioning of the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.
Glutamine is an energy source for intestinal and immune cells. It also helps maintain the barrier between the intestines and the rest of your body and aids with the proper growth of intestinal cells.
Lipo Fat Injection
Lipo Fat is a multi-ingredient injection containing essential B vitamins, minerals and a combination of Amino Acids. It provides nutrients and effectively promotes metabolism and increase in energy levels assisting in burning fat deposits.
Auriculotherapy is often described as reflexology for the ear. It is typically considered a form of acupuncture. Instead, there are hundreds of points on the ear that are believed to represent a micro-system of the body, with points for areas both physical and emotional. The stimulation of these points is known as Auriculotherapy.
Auriculotherapy has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Just as this ancient healing art defines acupuncture points on the body for treatment of various conditions, similar points are defined on the ear. The ear is actually a micro-map of the entire body (an inverted fetus), with all body parts represented. Thus, all parts of the body can be treated by means of the external ear. Proponents believe that auriculotherapy works because many of the nerve endings in the ear connect to hormonal parts of the brain and organs within the body.
Each spot on the ear is stimulated to treat specific problems, they can directly target areas to treat various health conditions. These points will be treated with various treatment methods such as acupuncture needles, ear seeds, laser, or mild electrical stimulation. Electrical stimulation has the advantage of also providing electrical detection of active points for precise treatment.
Electroacupuncture is a form of acupuncture where a small electric current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. This practice augments the use of regular acupuncture, can restore health and well-being and is particularly good for treating pain.
Gua Sha is a straightforward technique commonly used in Asia. In Gua Sha, the skin is pressured, in strokes, by a round-edged instrument; this, in Western terms, extravasates blood and metabolic waste congesting the surface tissues and muscles, promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes. By resolving fluid and blood stasis, Gua Sha is valuable in the treatment of pain, in the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many acute or chronic disorders.
Nano and Micro-Needling
Micro-Needling is the insertion of very fine short needles into the skin for the purpose of rejuvenation. Micro-Needling creates micro-channels in the skin. When those channels are created the skin's own repair response is to start producing collagen and elastin, this is to heal that controlled injury that was just created. That in turn makes our skin tighter and smoother.
It is important to realize that micro-needling is not a quick fix, as it involves the growth of new skin. It can take several treatments for a person to see the full results of the procedure.
Nano-Needling: nano-needling is an innovative, non-invasive transdermal serum delivery system designed to rejuvenate your skin and remedy many common issues like lack of tone, uneven texture, excessive pigmentation, scarring, and loss of elasticity. The benefits of this serum infusion treatment include pigmentation reduction, increased cell turnover, skin rejuvenation and an immediate glow with no downtime.
If you are concerned about fine lines & wrinkles, swelling, or sagging skin, then nano-needling is for you. If your skincare concerns include deep wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks or deep acne scars, then micro-needling would be the treatment for that.
