Need an excuse for a little bit of me time which may benefit health and beauty simultaneously? Even better, the treatment occurs while you relax on the bed.
On The Go Acu performs a professional and effective form of Cosmetic Acupuncture known as Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture. This form of Cosmetic Acupuncture is a natural,effective and relaxing addition to any beauty routine. It is somewhat similar to getting a facial with a few key differences.
The face often mirrors the bodies internal environment, it may reflect emotional or physical issues which may otherwise go unnoticed. Cosmetic Acupuncture offers its clients a diagnosis and a treatment method which may help resolve these underlying health concerns and provide natural facial rejuvenation using the bodies own healing abilities!
Definition of Constitutional Facial Acupuncture:
Is a full constitutional treatment that views the face as an extension of the meridians of the entire body, which flows from the soles of the feet to the crown of the head. It draws upon Ancient Chinese wisdom related to longevity, beauty and balance.
When the face is needled, blood flow and qi carries nutrients to ALL cells of the body; the body interprets the insertion of needles as a ''positive injury'' (microtrauma), which, in turn, through ''stimulation of fibroblasts, can increase collagen output". Specifically may produce type 3 collagen, known to support skin, muscles, connective tissue, bone health, hair and nail growth and other functions.
Selected acupuncture points may be used to activate the muscles 'own natural toning mechanism' to naturally lift the face. Fine needles are used for particular acupuncture points on the face, often penetrating the muscle or skin layer depending on the wrinkle. This in turn, activates Qi and Blood in the face naturally.
Very fine (single use/disposable) needles are inserted into particular acupuncture points on the face, needles are inserted into the dermis layer of the skin. The particular points selected and the insertion of the needles into the dermis layer of the skin often combine to increase facial collagen production. Especially Type 3 Collagen as discussed above. This may cause an overall improvement in facial appearance and may have anti aging benefits.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) enhances the bodies own natural healing abilities, treats the body holistically and aims to both treat and prevent illness. Aging can be seen in the same light and similar TCM principles can be applied to rejuvenating the face via cosmetic acupuncture.
Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture may work via treating the body at its constitutional, possibly 'DNA level', this is where the body is able to heal and repair itself and in turn the face, which helps provide a glowing and more youthful appearance.
At Acu Total Health, Cosmetic Acupuncture should encourage "If bodily harmony is restored and treatment is focused on the face, beauty and radiance should follow".

Duration of Cosmetic Acupuncture Treatments
After the first session of Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture the required number of follow-up treatments will be evaluated.
Various other variables need consideration, such as stress, diet, lifestyle, constitution, medical history, digestive state, sleep, emotional balance and age as every person is different and so the ageing process.
Recommended Treatment Duration for Cosmetic Acupuncture
Single Sessions are Available,
Normally between 10-12 Facial Rejuvenation Treatments is recommended for maximum results. Keep in mind it takes time for the collagen to rebuild in the face.
Age is not a key defining factor! For example, a mature patient with a healthy lifestyle may have a better outcome than a younger person who does not get enough sleep.
1-2 treatment per week.
*Please Note: there is only ONE Consultation, after the first treatment there will just be the treatment itself (inserting of needles and facial) this is to maximise treatments effects, If there is any further consulting needed this will usually be of short duration (5-10 minutes).
* Please Note: the first visit with us will be of longer duration, to include the Consultation, which explains Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture, treatment(s) and address any concerns.
To ensure the persistence of the results, ongoing maintenance treatments are recommended. Within the normal parameters of aging, a full completion of a series of treatments (4-12 treatments per year) should be effective.
Once/ Month indefinitely (highly recommended)
Or every 2 weeks for 2 months (following the completion of a treatment series 10-12 treatments).
* These are only recommendations for the best results. However, the amount of treatments is up to you.
