Acupuncture for Rejuvenation: How It Works

Acupuncture is like a magical dance for your face! 

Let’s explore how it works:

  1. Tiny Needles: Imagine little fairy wands (we call them needles) that gently touch your face. These needles are so tiny that they’re like whispers in the wind.

  2. Energy Pathways: Your face has secret pathways (like secret tunnels) where energy flows. Acupuncture helps unblock these pathways. Think of it as opening doors to let the energy dance freely.

  3. Collagen and Elastin: Now, inside your skin, there’s something called collagen (like a superhero rope) and elastin (like a bouncy trampoline). Acupuncture tells them, “Hey, wake up!” Collagen tightens and plumps your skin, while elastin makes it springy.

  4. Healing Magic: When the needles touch your skin, they create tiny magic wounds (don’t worry, it’s painless!). Your body’s healing wizards rush in. They bring more blood, like a river flowing faster, and deliver nutrients to your skin.

  5. Youthful Glow: Collagen and elastin start dancing again! Wrinkles shrink, fine lines tiptoe away, and sagging skin gets a lift. It’s like turning back time on your face.

  6. Other Perks: Acupuncture isn’t just about wrinkles. It can also soothe itchy skin, make your complexion glow, and even lift droopy eyelids. Imagine your face doing a happy dance!

Acupuncture is like a gentle hug for your skin. If you'd  like to try it, please feel free to call us at 416-800-3978 or book it online.

Spring REJUVENATION by Acupuncture


Spring is the season of growth, regeneration, increased activity and new beginnings.Traditional Chinese medicine believes that "the liver is connected to the spring qi" , and spring is a great time to nourish the liver for Spring rejuvenation. 

During the season of spring, people experience many changes. Allergies, high blood pressure, headaches, sinus pain and congestion, anger, irritation and tendon problems are just some of the issues common to the spring months. 

To keep the liver and gallbladder working smoothly, things like acupuncture, herbal formulas, tai chi and qi gong are all recommended. Acupuncture utilizes over 300 different pressure points on the body to help keep it in alignmentand shine on your face. There are specific points that can be used to help balance the body during the season of spring. 

1. Liver 3 (Tai Chong) – This point is located bilaterally on the top of the foot, in the depression about one thumb-breadth from the edge of the webbing between the first and second toes. This point can be used to decrease headaches, nasal congestion and depression.

2. Large Intestine 20 (Ying Xiang)– Found bilaterally on either side of the nose, in the nasolabial groove, level with the lower border of the nostril. This point is very effective for decreasing nasal pain and obstruction, as well as helping decrease rhinorrhea, also known as a runny nose. These symptoms are quite common with allergies that occur during spring.
