1b64_Constitutional Facial Acupuncture
We are redefining the face of aging on a daily basis, with the Baby Boom generation in the vanguard, followed by younger generations who are similarly intrigued by non-invasive natural solutions that are integrative rather than
purely cosmetic. Constitutional Facial Acupuncture has begun to make an impact on popular culture and outmoded perceptions about the nature of
authentic beauty and the aging process. Acupuncturists who practice in this field are increasingly expected to have specialized training and knowledge outside the customary
parameters of the more traditional approaches.
This book introduces a complete Constitutional Facial Acupuncture protocol that is comprehensive, effective and clearly organized,
with illustrative color photographs and facial needling diagrams. Its strong constitutional components are unique, adhere to the
principles of Chinese medicine, and are rooted in the three levels of treatment – Jing, Ying and Wei.
Key Features:
• A new and detailed Constitutional Facial Acupuncture protocol highlights acu-muscle points, Shen imbalances, lines and wrinkles,
needling technique, relevant points and their locations
• A comprehensive constitutional treatment approach
• A customized, modular topical herbal protocol that is enriched with the use of essential oils and natural cleansers, creams, etc.
• Practical step-by-step instructions on how to integrate the needling protocols with the topical herbs, jade rollers, gem eye disks, etc.
• A complete Constitutional Facial Acupuncture needling protocol for 12 problematic areas of the facial landscape, i.e. droopy
eyelids, sagging neck, crow’s feet, sunken cheeks, etc.
• Contraindications, benefits, and personal advice drawn from the author’s 30+ years of experience
• An essential text for students or practitioners of facial acupuncture, and also for those readers who are interested in the field of
“healthy aging
