Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used for almost 5,000 years to treat a wide range of conditions. Having proven itself with literally billions of people, Traditional Chinese Medicine has survived the test of time. The use of TCM and acupuncture in cosmetology–especially in preventing and reducing wrinkles–has already attracted great attention in Japan, Hong Kong, and Sweden.
The effectiveness of Acupuncture is due to its direct manipulation of the body’s energy system–balancing, removing blockages or adding energy when necessary. A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included: the skin becoming delicate and fair, greater elasticity of the facial muscles, diminished wrinkles, better facial coloring, and overall rejuvenation–not confined to the face.
