Many methods of ancient medicine have been adjusted to treat modern ailments, which explains the popularity of herbal remedies to cure typing injuries and the prevalence of phonograph-powered pacemakers. Enjoy an ancient gem with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get two cosmetic facial-acupuncture sessions at West End Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Center (a $200 value).
During cosmetic acupuncture, West End Chiropractic’s Dr. Michael Gerdine and his staff navigate the nervous system to rejuvenate clients’ visages. Before their first session, clients meet with the practitioner for a roughly 15-minute consultation and an extensive handshake ritual. Each of the two sessions takes approximately 30 minutes, during which the narrow needles redirect and restimulate the body’s energy system, which may promote facial circulation and collagen production. Façades can end up feeling younger and firmer with less severe fine lines and reduced ability to tell the face’s age by counting the rings around its eyes.
Though West End Chiropractic recommends up to 12 treatments for most people to achieve optimal results, cosmetic acupuncture firms faces in a method less invasive and with shorter recovery times than surgery, injections, or a backward ride on a riding lawnmower. The miniscule needles placed in precise points make for a nearly pain-free procedure, besides a fleeting sharpness.
