Acupuncture is far from new, having been around for centuries. It is a form of traditional Chinese medicine, used to help release blocked Qi (energy) to help treat those suffering from pain, headaches, nausea, high and low blood pressure, even people struggling with fertility and hayfever.
Here at Oakwell Health we also offer the niche form of Cosmetic acupuncture.
Reportedly deemed a safer alternative to surgery or anti-wrinkle injections, this treatment is an extension of traditional acupuncture and is said to help the skin look smoother, healthier and younger naturally.
The positive micro-traumas caused by the needles help boost the skin to produce collagen. This helps improve elasticity, minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Unlike anti-wrinkle injections, cosmetic acupuncture is said to address aging as well as the skin’s overall health…a win-win, since we all know the glow comes from within!
