Another great benefit of acupuncture Orlando to a person’s health is its anti-aging benefits. This type of acupuncture is commonly called cosmetic acupuncture.
Acupuncture is a modality derived from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and it is about inserting very thin needles into specific points in the body. TCM believes in the idea that health problems are caused by an energy imbalance caused by blockage in the energy vessels called meridians. The needles help remove the blockage thus restoring normal energy flow throughout the body and good health to be restored. Because of the uniqueness of each patient’s constitution, a medical history review of the patient and examination of the patient’s symptoms are done to thoroughly analyze the patient’s problem so that the correct treatment may be given. The same steps are applied with regards to cosmetic acupuncture. Unlike the conventional anti-aging approaches, cosmetic acupuncture actually benefits the whole body by improving blood flow throughout the body and revitalizing the body with new energy. Furthermore, besides being a very effective anti aging treatment, cosmetic acupuncture is a very safe and non-invasive procedure that regulates the body systems and functions.
As a procedure for anti-aging, cosmetic acupuncture targets specific points in the body, especially the face with acupuncture needles inserted there to improve blood flow to the facial skin and muscles and stimulate the production and release of collagen. The collagen eliminates the facial laugh lines and wrinkles and increase muscle tightness in the face to reduce any facial sagging to make the face look much younger.
As mentioned the whole treatment not only benefits the face and the skin, it also helps regulate body functions including the body organs and balance the whole physical body and mind. Thus, cosmetic acupuncture not only makes one younger looking, it also increases the overall health of the person that manifests in a vibrant and healthy facial glow.
When one compares acupuncture with other cosmetic procedures such as certain types of plastic surgery, liposuction and Botox among others, acupuncture is a relatively non-invasive and very safe procedure over these other treatments. The latter can be very risky and many times are botched even by the best of cosmetic surgeons. These errors and mistakes can leave a permanent ugly mark on the skin and worse, can create situations that damage the health of the person. There is very minimal risk for injury or accident with acupuncture compared to the other popular conventional procedures. For those who would rather avoid any type of surgery or really painful procedures, cosmetic acupuncture can be a great and much better alternative for looking good.
Another advantage of cosmetic acupuncture is its relative economy. A whole cosmetic acupuncture treatment program costs merely a fraction of one cycle of Botox or a typical facelift surgery. Cost can be a significant factor for most people who want to look and feel young without costing them an arm and a leg.
