Are my medical records confidential?

I am a Healthcare Professional that has to uphold patient confidentiality exactly as a Physician must. The California Acupuncture board mandates that all medical records are COMPLETELY confidential and that they cannot be released to ANYONE, even the police, an attorney, or your insurance company EVER unless by a court order. If patient confidentiality is not upheld, I could lose my license. That would be a waste of hundreds of thousands spent on schooling for 5 years and the potential earnings lost in the future. More so, it would be a huge ethical violation; It will not ever happen.

Are the effects of Cosmetic Acupuncture proven?

Research Study

“A 1996 report in the international Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 98% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included:

  • skin becoming more delicate and fair
  • improvement of the elasticity of facial muscles
  • diminished wrinkles
  • healthier/brighter complexion
  • overall rejuvenation not confined to the face

Are these new and unproven alternative trendy techniques?

Hardly. In the past 2,000 years, more people have been successfully treated with acupuncture than with all other health modalities combined. For thousands of years, the Chinese have known that beauty comes from the inside. At least as early as the Sung Dynasty (960 AD-1270 AD) Acupuncture rejuvenation practices were employed for the Empress and the Emperor’s concubines to enhance beauty. The Chinese discovered and utilized ways to change the energy flow within the body to initiate the healing process for rejuvenation. According to a famous Chinese axiom, “Where qi goes, blood flows.” Even for those unfamiliar with the principles of Chinese Medicine, it is known that increased circulation helps the body to look and feel better. Common sense would tell us that treating the underlying cause of why someone is aging is preferable to masking the outward symptoms and allowing further decline and dysfunction to continue within the body.

At what age should I start Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Skin elasticity begins its decline at the age of 21. So, it is never too early to start. Typically, best results are seen in patients before the age of 55. The best age range is between 20 to 55 years old. Even younger youthful skin will benefit from cosmetic acupuncture to delay the aging process and keep the skin glowing.

Does Acupuncture affect your spirituality?

Acupuncture works on an energetic level effecting the balance of your body. It allows for stuck emotions to be released. There are many Taoist spiritual acupuncture points that deal with  a bevy of spiritual issues. Anything from getting you back on your life path to what is buried in your subconscious mind.

There is no doubt that physical changes happen during an acupuncture session, and I look for changes in the pulse and tongue to get a read on how a patient is doing. There is no doubt that energy is liberated in the acupuncture treatment. And, I want my patients to see the spirit-level component, on the first visit I always ask people what they want to change. Through our course of treatment together, I refer back to that regularly to see what kind of progress we’re making. I simply ask the questions, “Are we going in a direction that feels useful? Are we making progress?” Its actually very apparent to me when spiritual changes are present in my patients. Its like when you look at a friend and you see that the light in her eyes is dim, you know that something has happened for her on the spirit level. Spirit is the light in the lantern.. When we see that spirit (or shen) come back and re-enter the eyes, it is brilliant, and evident to all.

Why treat the body as well and not just the face only?

The effects of Facial Acupuncture are not confined to the face. Each acupuncture treatment is individualized according to how each person is aging. No two people receive the same treatments because each person’s aging process is unique. Acupuncture points are chosen based on an individualized differential diagnosis according to the Theory of Chinese medicine. A diagnosis is reached by examining constitutional health issues and any symptoms you may be having. If you have other complaints such as digestive problems, acute or chronic pain, stress, insomnia, fatigue etc., these symptoms will be addressed in the session and specific points chosen accordingly. Thus, the treatment is an overall balance of your health as well as your appearance. Beauty from within. The wrinkles disappear and your health improves at the same time!

Throughout the course of treatment, other physical symptoms you may be experiencing will also improve, even if we don’t actively address them. Treatments can improve hormonal balance; delay the graying of hair and hair loss associated with aging. You may notice you have a better quality of sleep and increased energy. It will improve your digestion and metabolism and strengthen your immune system. You can also address and treat any chronic or recurring pain.

Do I accept health insurance?

How do Chinese Herbs contribute to the treatment?

Chinese herbs are an important part of the Facial Rejuvenation protocol. Herbal formulas are created specifically for you and herbs are selected based on your constitutional diagnosis. Again, the principle is that if the body is in balance and your organ systems are functioning properly, the negative signs of aging are reduced. Chinese herbs help to restore balance on a daily basis. They help to continue the effects of the acupuncture between treatments. Also, sometimes more severe symptoms for instance hot flashes, night sweating, hair loss or even bloating and indigestion are more effectively treated with herbal supplement, rather than by acupuncture alone.

How does Acupuncture work? (Chinese Medical Explanation)

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning.The capacity to heal is strong in all of us. Acupuncture taps into the bodymind’s capacity for self-regulation, which is the core of healing. Gaining the path toward health and well-being often involves changing the pattern we are stuck in. Acupuncture changes the pattern of the bodymind through the insertion of fine needles into the body. Acupuncture needles resonate the bodymind and subtly shape its enormous and ongoing project of self-regulation. The living moment is actually a welter of changing circumstances-chemical and physical, from within and from without-in the midst of which the bodymind rarely loses its balance. When the loss of balance occurs, the result is illness. But the body is capable of righting this balance, which the ancient Chinese defined in terms of yin and yang. In the TCM system of medicine, the body is seen as a delicate balance of two opposing and inseparable forces: yin and yang. Yin represents the cold, slow, or passive principle, while yang represents the hot, excited, or active principle.

How does being stuck apply here? TCM theorises that it is essential for qi (energy), as well as blood to circulate in a continuous and unobstructed manner for good health of the mind and body. A complex network of internal and external Acupuncture meridians or channels is the pathway through which the energy flows throughout the body making this possible, and connecting the body as a unity. Acupuncture points lie along the meridians and are the access points that allow entry into the acupuncture meridians. The acupuncture points provide gateways to influence, redirect, increase, or decrease body’s vital substances, qi (energy) & blood, thus correcting many of the body’s imbalances.

As energy is redirected in the body, internal chemicals and hormones are stimulated and healing begins to take place as the body is balanced; thus relieving symptoms and eliminating illness.TCM likens the human body to a highly complex electrical circuit. Like any electrical circuit it must be kept in good working order if it is to function effectively, and if the circuit breaks down the result is illness.Channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up in others. The acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body’s internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians.

How does Acupuncture work? (Western Scientific Explanation)

The fact of the matter is that acupuncture does work, and has been shown to do so, but the exact answer as to how it works is unclear. The current scientific explanations give a logical and supportable basis for stating that it does have an effect on the nervous system, but it is difficult to draw any more definite conclusions.

Currently, there is not one western scientific theory that collaboratively explains all of the physiological mechanisms underlying the effects of Acupuncture. This is because Acupuncture has a variety of therapeutic effects on the body thus the action must vary depending on the type of pathology.

The most popular modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release pain-killing biochemicals such as endorphins and immune system cells in the muscles, nerves cells, spinal cord, pituitary gland, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system. Studies have shown that acupuncture may alter brain chemistry by changing the release of neurotransmitters and neurohormones. These affect the parts of the central nervous system related to sensation and involuntary body functions, thereby boosting immune reactions and regulating processes that control a person’s blood pressure, blood flow, and body temperature.

The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.

In summary, scientists have deduced a number of theories from observing a number of individual clinical effects of acupuncture treatment. These theories and the observed clinical effects on which the theories are based can be summarised as the following:

  • Augmentation of Immunity Theory – Increased Immune Function & Disease Resistance
  • Endorphin Theory – Reduction of Pain
  • Neurotransmitter Theory – Inflammation Reduction & Prome Feelings of Well Being
  • Circulatory Theory – Improved Circulation & Smooth Muscle Relaxation
  • Gate Control Theory – Increased Pain Tolerance
  • Motor Gate Theory – Hasten Motor Recovery from Paralysis
  • Homeostatic/Regulatory Effect – Regulate Homeostasis to Disease/Abnormal Conditions
  • Bioelectric Theory – Stimulation of cells of tissue growth & repair
  • Nervous System Theory – Central nervous system, spinal & peripheral nerve stimulation

How does Cosmetic Acupuncture Work?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory beauty comes from within. When you start to age in a way that looks and feels unhealthy then it is possible the flow of Qi, Blood, and Essence are not balance within your body. When balance is restored, you will feel and look more radiant. On a physiological level, acupuncture has been shown to increase circulation of blood and life energy throughout the body. Increased blood flow can help us to maintain healthy skin and muscle tone by sending nourishment, moisture, and “lifting” energy to the skin and muscles of the face. By increasing lymph flow using my facial tui na massage and combined with acupuncture I can help strengthen the immune system; our skin is an essential part of our immune system. The needles inserted into the face affect collagen and elastin production which will help tone the skin. Collagen is a protein produced by our bodies that is responsible for our skin’s durability and resilience. Elastin is responsible for the elasticity of our skin. Sun exposure and aging degrade and decrease the production of our collagen and elastin. Acupuncture helps to stimulate the body’s natural processes of cell reproduction and growth. Needles are placed in the muscle motor points to re-educate the muscles back to their original placement, thus the face looks more sculpted, more youthful and lifted. Cosmetic Acupuncture is also known as facial acupuncture and facial rejuvenation acupuncture.

How long does the visible improvement last?

The effects of Facial Acupuncture are cumulative and last up to 3-5 years after a course of 10 treatments, with maintenance.

Each patient will be different, but usually each patient will need maintenance treatments once per month or once per season. Cosmetic Acupuncture diminishes the fine lines already existing on the skin and prevents the skin from aging.

How many Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments do I need?

A typical course of treatment consists of 10-14 consecutive treatments to see desired results. Twice per week for 5-7 weeks. While results are often noticeable after just a few sessions, a full course allows deeper, more lasting results to occur. After completing a course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results. Maintenance sessions usually occur monthly for 2 to 3 months and then seasonally for as long as you wish to maintain results depending on the reaction of the patient. For some difficult cases, for example if the patient is older with deeper lines, they may need to repeat another 10 sessions. Why maintenance? Because the two best friends of aging, gravity and the sun are still with us; We need to combat that.

How should I prepare for my Acupuncture treatment?

Patients should eat (but not overeat) before an acupuncture treatment and should wear comfortable clothes. I may need to raise the pant legs to the knee, or get at the belly so dress accordingly. Refrain from rigorous exercise for at least two hours before and after treatment. Alcohol consumption is not advised. An evening Facial Acupuncture session may keep you awake at night, so I recommend a session earlier in the day if possible when the focus is the face. Otherwise evening is relaxing.

I have had a facelift. Do I need Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation?

Yes. Overall facial muscle tone, circulation, collagen and elastin stimulation and the glow from within are not benefits of a facelift. If you wish, I can do scar reduction therapy. I use the needles to break down the scar tissue for a smoother more natural appearance as well as re-establishing the energy and blood flow through the scarred areas. Also, gravity is still working everyday after the surgery, so you can prevent further surgeries.

What is Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation?

Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. Acupuncture techniques as well as a variety of Chinese medical treatments and Chinese herbal supplements are used to erase years off of your face. Based on the differentiated diagnoses of Oriental Medicine, the whole body looks and feels younger by addressing the physical, mental and emotional patterns that cause disease and contribute to the aging process.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Yes. Licensed Acupuncturists know the human anatomy well, and insert needles in a safe fashion.

Is Bruising a Possible Side Effect?

I am meticulous about my insertions and withdrawals of needles so that bruising of any kind does not occur. Great care is given to insert and withdraw in a way that does not allow for bruising. In some people that bruise very easily, very slight bruising may occur, especially around the eye area. This is nothing compared to the bruising, pain and swelling associated with a surgical procedure. If bruising did occur, bruises will disappear in three to seven days.

Is everyone a candidate for Facial Acupuncture?

No. If a patient has the following disorders, they will not be treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture:

  • Hemophiliacs
  • Pacemakers
  • Uncontrolled High Blood Pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Severe Migraines within the last 3 months
  • Pregnant Women

What are the effects of Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Cosmetic Acupuncture may erase as many as 5 to 15 years from the face, with results apparent after a course of treatments.

Fine lines may be eliminated and wrinkles diminished. Bags under the eyes can be reduced, jowls firmed, puffiness eliminated, droopy eyelids lifted and double chins minimized. Other likely results include: moisturizing of the skin with increased local circulation of blood and lymph to the face; increased collagen production, muscle tone, and dermal contraction; tightening of the pores; brightening of the eyes; improvement of hormonal balance to help acne and the reduction of stress. This brings out your innate beauty and radiance.

While it does not produce the dramatic results of some of invasive procedures, it does help the face look younger, healthier and more radiant without dangerous side effects.

Since the body/mind/spirit are all connected, negative emotions reflect in the face and change the appearance of skin texture, color and tension. Acupuncture can eliminate stress and bring out innate strength, vitality and health. You will not only look younger but also most certainly feel younger. Studies show that stress is the number one killer in the world. It leads to high blood pressure, heart disease, and all kinds of other ailments. Have you ever considered how STRESS can affect your face? And certainly, stress causes one to age more rapidly (including in the face). Acupuncture is a great stress reliever.

What else can I do to prolong my result?

Remember to keep good mental or written notes of what your response is to the treatment. This is important for me to know so that the follow-up treatments can be designed to best help you and your problem.

Herbal supplements, diet and lifestyle changes, and facial exercise can enhance the effects of Facial Acupuncture and further improve your health, well-being, and youthful appearance. As part of your overall Facial Acupuncture treatment such complementary therapies may be recommended.

Chinese herbs are known and have been proven for longevity and beauty, as well as many other health conditions, since the first century.

Addressing diet and lifestyle factors that impact our beauty can help to enhance the effectiveness of Facial Acupuncture sessions. Adequate protein, for example is essential for collagen production and overall energy. Sufficient sleep and proactive stress management also have a positive effect on our appearance. As a holistic approach to health and beauty, Facial Acupuncture includes an overall evaluation of your needs in order to develop a specific, personal course of treatment for each individual.

What if I fear needles? Do the needles hurt?

The experience of having acupuncture is pleasant, relaxing and energizing. The needles are hair thin, sterile and generally painless and never used twice.

Some first-time patients have an understandable fear of the unknown. My experience in working with new patients is that respecting this fear and educating the individual about the acupuncture process allays these legitimate concerns and enlists his or her energies toward treatment and healing.

Acupuncture needles are hair thin and solid and are made from the finest quality stainless steel. The point is smooth (not hollow with cutting edges like a hypodermic needle) and insertion through the skin is not as painful as injections or blood sampling. The risk of bruising and skin irritation is less than when using a thick hollow needle.

I am known as an incredibly conscientious needle inserter. I myself fear the pain of needle insertion so I am extremely sensitive to my patients comfort and fears. As such, non-needle sessions are available upon request.

Acupuncturists can attain a high level of skill in gently placing these tiny needles and often the insertion is barely perceptible. I use a special Japanese technique of painless needling on the face. The needles are usually inserted only several millimeters in depth—also very unlike hypodermic injections. As such, patients generally do not feel the painful piercing or pricking sensation typically associated with an injection, blood sample, or other medical needle procedure.

There may be a brief soreness or pulling sensation which means that your qi has connected with the needle.

There should be no pain. Inform me immediately if this is the case. Some people pluck hairs from their body others believe it is a great amount of pain to endure, thus they dont pluck. Acupuncture is the same idea, but the benefits are so astonishing in some cases, that a tiny bit of pain like plucking an eyelash would be seen as a small price to pay for such great gain!

Most people who have had acupuncture would describe it as virtually painless or far less painful than plucking out a hair and liken the needles to ‘cat whiskers’..

Some people are frightened by the thought of acupuncture and may feel that it takes a great deal of courage. The first, and probably the most important fact to understand about acupuncture, is that it is not a frightening experience. It does involve the insertion of fine needles through the skin, and most acupuncturists use between six and eight acupuncture needles at each treatment session. The needles used are smaller than injection needles, in fact an acupuncture needle fits into the central hole of a normal injection needle. Acupuncture needles have a doweled end, not a cutting end like most hypodermic needles, and therefore are far less likely to cause tissue damage or bruising when inserted.

You are made comfortable and draped appropriately. A good treatment feels like being in “the zone” or a deep meditation as your body moves back into balance.

What is Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation?

Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. Acupuncture techniques as well as a variety of Chinese medical treatments and Chinese herbal supplements are used to erase years off of your face. Based on the differentiated diagnoses of Oriental Medicine, the whole body looks and feels younger by addressing the physical, mental and emotional patterns that cause disease and contribute to the aging process. It is also called Cosmetic Acupuncture of Facial Acupuncture.

What is Scar Reduction Therapy and who is a candidate?

Needles are used to break down the scar tissue, which reduce it in size and thickness for a smoother more natural appearance. Also, the energy and blood flow through the scarred areas is re-established. Women with Hysterectomy scars benefit greatly. Anyone who has had body piercing scars, surgery scars, scars from trauma, especially keloid scars, benefit greatly from scar therapy. Facial scars are especially important to reduced in size. Redness, unevenness, sensitivity, numbness, tingling are all indications that the scar should be worked on. I have successfully stopped lower abdominal pain lasting 35 years of from my work on Hysterectomy scars.

What is the Acupuncture procedure?

On your first treatment, we discuss your health history, including any physical, mental or emotional issues in your daily life that need to be balance and work on. We will evaluate what changes you would like to see in your face and skin and what kind of treatment plan best fits your needs. Each treatment involves the insertion of tiny acupuncture needles, finer than a strand of hair, into specific areas through out the whole body. I insert the needles throughout your body while you are relaxing and lying down on my treatment table (clothes on). During acupuncture, full attention will be given to help you relax and receive the most value from the treatment. After each needle is inserted, you may feel nothing, or sometimes a vague numbness, heaviness, or slight tingling. However, the treatment is effective whether these feelings are sensed or not. The needles will be left in for 20-30 minutes while you relax with soothing music. In general, the treatments are very relaxing. Many patients fall asleep. After the treatment, you may experience a relaxing euphoric feeling. It is quite common with the first one or two treatments to have a sensation of deep relaxation or even mild disorientation immediately following the treatment. These pass within a short time, and never require anything more than a bit of rest to overcome.

What is the Difference between Cosmetic Acupuncture & Plastic Surgery?

For starters, it must be stated that Cosmetic Acupuncture is in no way a substitute for a standard invasive surgical facelift procedure. While not a replacement for surgery, Cosmetic Acupuncture is an excellent alternative to surgical procedures. The outcome may very greatly from person to person and may not improve excessively sagging or drooping skin.

Cosmetic Acupuncture cannot reshape one’s nose or chin; it is a more subtle rejuvenation that takes years off one’s face safely and naturally while improving overall health.

Plastic surgery is visible. A surgeon cuts and pulls up the skin. But if you don’t have normal blood circulation, your face will still look dull. Plastic surgery can never improve your skin’s appearance or give it a nice pinkish color, or give overall muscle tone to the face to make you look authentically 5-10 years younger. You’ll look lifted and that’s it; No health benefits. It actually consumes your vital force in the process of trauma and healing.

There are two aspects to the benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture. One is the benefit of ‘local’ treatment and one is the benefit of ‘root’ treatment. Local treatment directly addresses facial aging symptoms while root treatment treats the underlying cause of facial symptoms such as hormonal balance, digestive problems or emotional stress. Both local and root treatments are performed in each session to provide the best and the longest lasting benefits.

With Acupuncture, there is very little discomfort when the needles are inserted into the skin. There is nothing in the needles. They are solid, not hollow. The process is not painful and it does not require any down time. It does not cause scars, bruises or irritation. You can go back to your normal life immediately after the treatment.

Who is a candidate for Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Anyone with an interest in ‘Healthy Vanity’. Anyone who knows that looking as good as you feel can make a critical difference. Anyone who has considered botox or any cosmetic enhancement, or any cosmetic surgery, especially those who are considering a surgical facelift. Please try this first in lieu of a permanent procedure, permanent scars, and a permanent dent in your wallet!

Cosmetic Acupuncture is especially for people in the public eye, performers, on camera personalities, professionals, real estate agents, politicians, the mother of the bride, and even the bride herself.

Men especially benefit from Cosmetic Acupuncture. They don’t usually have the liberty of using various facial makeup, cosmetics, accessories, and hair styles to enhance their looks as women do. And Facelifts tend to be really obvious and unnatural on men for a number of reasons. Men are in the public eye quite often, and people make judgments and decide whether to trust them based on looks alone at first. Often they make those decisions without ever meeting and speaking with the man.

Why Choose Cosmetic Acupuncture Over a Surgical Face Lift?

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a painless alternative that has no side effects at all and is very safe with no real possibilities of complications. Due to the trauma created by a surgical facelift, the recovery time can be more than two weeks, while an acupuncture face lift has no recovery period. There will also be no swelling, discoloration or any bruising.

It is far less costly than cosmetic surgery and is safe, virtually painless, has no side effects or risk of disfigurement. Unlike surgery that may have an extended recovery period with swelling and discoloration, there is no trauma from Cosmetic Acupuncture.

More and more, women and men too, are looking for a natural face-lift, that is, a way to maintain their youthful looking facial skin, naturally. Face-lifts using surgery, or cosmetic face-lifts using products such as Botox injections, are being replaced at least in part, by natural methods.

Why get Cosmetic Acupuncture over other cosmetic procedures?

  • Total cost of a whole series of treatments is closer to $1000 than many thousands!
  • No risks involved

  • Risk of paralysis of surrounding muscles & upper eyelid droop
  • Only temporary results. The more you get, the more you need to achieve same effect
  • Cost is at least $600.00 every 3-4 months!
  • May not be able to raise eyebrows and have other expressions
  • Long term effects of botox are still unknown

Why not get a Surgical Facelift, or update a past Surgical Facelift?

  • Risk of Debt – $6,000.00++
