Dallas Chinese Medicine for Facial Rejuvenation

In the West, demand for traditional Chinese medicine just goes on growing, however it’s the Chinese who are taking a great big acupuncture needle and trying to prick this bubble. More and more of them are rejecting their ancient remedies in favor of Western medicine. A proposal to remove from the Chinese health care system traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has divided public opinion and outraged the Government which backs its use.

Traditional Chinese medicine is also known as TCM or T.C.M. or Simplified Chinese. Traditional Dallas Chinese medicine is a range of traditional medical practices used in China that developed over several thousand years. These practices include herbal medicine, acupuncture, and massage. TCM is a form of Oriental medicine, which includes other traditional East Asian medical systems such as Japanese and Korean medicine. TCM says processes of the human body are interrelated and constantly interact with the environment. Therefore the theory looks for the signs of disharmony in the external and internal environment of a person in order to understand, treat and prevent illness and disease.

TCM theory is based on a number of philosophical frameworks including the Theory of Yin-yang, the Five Elements, the human body Meridian system, Zang Fu theory, and others. Diagnosis and treatment are conducted with reference to these concepts. TCM does not usually operate within a scientific paradigm but some practitioners make efforts to bring practices into an evidence-based medicine framework.

A new acupuncture technique is helping some people decrease the appearance of wrinkles and look years younger. For centuries, acupuncture has been used to treat everything from pain to depression. Now, acupuncture is the latest technique in facial rejuvenation, reported WCVB-TV in Boston.

Facial acupuncture involves small needles that are tapped into pressure points on the face. Practitioners then stretch skin from the chin line to the scalp. Practitioners said that it increases blood flow to the area, providing instant color and tighter muscle tone.

“It doesn’t have any side effects. Your face is never going to look burned or stretched. You’re going to look younger and more glowing,” said Anna Raynua, of Acupuncture Specialties Group in Newton Centre, Mass.

women who are under a lot of stress or with hormonal imbalances are good candidates for the procedure, experts said. Acupuncture practitioners said that the procedure balances the entire body’s energy system.
