Cold/Flu Season Package

1. How does acupuncture help you to fight cold and flu?

Studies have shown that patients receiving acupuncture have elevated immune-enhancing hormones up to three days after treatment. Acupuncture can help to:

  • Prevent cold and flu by boosting the immune system

  • Help you get over the cold or flu faster if you already have it

  • Reduce chills, fever and body aches

  • Relieve sore throat and congestion

 

2. Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture rarely “hurts.” Acupuncture needles are very thin needles almost thin as a strand of hair, not like the hypodermic needles you’ve seen at hospitals and doctor’s office. If you experience dull ache around the base of the inserted needles, or slight tingly feeling, that’s the Qi (vital energy), which is a good sign.

 

3. What to expect after acupuncture treatments?

One feels relaxed during and after acupuncture treatments. It releases natural endorphins in your body which sometimes helps one to fall asleep during treatments and reduce pain. The most common side effects of acupuncture are things everyone wants: better sleep, more energy, mental clarity, better digestion and less stress!

Acu-facial/Anti-aging Package

1. How does acupuncture help with anti-aging?

Acupuncture treatments help one to have brighter and healthier complexion rather than just soothing out fine lines with its holistic approach. During your session, your acupuncturist will assess and give you a full body treatment as well as your face. Your face is a map of your health and finding the root of the cause very important.

Acupuncture can help with:

  • Brightening your complexion- helps with getting rid of impurities and enhancing the natural ‘glow’ of the face

  • Helps elasticity of your skin- the muscles in the face will relax. This helps smooth out fine lines and soften any wrinkled areas

  • Detoxify the body- toxins in the skin lead to wrinkles and unwanted redness

  • Helps circulation- the needles create ‘microcirculation,’ which improves blood flow to the face
