Acupuncture Facial

Acupuncture Facial

As I move through my 30’s and beyond, I have resisted doing anything too invasive to my skin. Instead, I focus on hydration, sunscreen, wearing hats, and applying natural oils at night for moisture.

So far this method has worked to keep wrinkles at bay! I do have some trouble spots, however. Like my slightly undefined chin and jawline, or neck that seems to carry a bit more weight than in the past.

In preparation for a big family party, I decided to have an acupuncture facial done, with one of my favorite acupuncturists – Sarah Swanberg of Indigo Acupuncture in Stamford, CT. The other is my friend Michelle Smith of Gathering Point Community Acupuncture in Tucson, AZ – a community acupuncture clinic.

I visit Sarah on a regular basis, receiving acupuncture for conception. I get blissed out on my Acupuncture cure every time… can anyone say #AcuHigh?

The facial resulted in having 30+ needles inserted into my face and neck. Then an ultraviolet facial lamp was placed over my face. This was a bit too bright for my eyes, so I asked for it to be removed. It is used to build collagen in the skin. Next was a scalp massage, followed by a gentle upward massage with a cup, jade roller, and gua sha tool.

At the end, my face glowed and my cheekbones and chin did seem more defined. My forehead had a more “lifted” look. The key now is upkeep at home!

The gua sha tool is my favorite. It’s so easy to use and leaves you feeling refreshed and just a tad more chiseled. It can also be used in place of a dry brush, for gentle full body lymphatic massage. Read more about my natural skincare routine and favorite products.
