Facial Rejuvenation and Deep Relaxation At Abundant Heaven
A Facial Rejuvenation Treatment with Abundant Heaven Traditional Chinese Medicine is not your typical 'facial'. Our treatment protocols can be customized and work to nourish the skin, stimulate collagen and connective tissues of the face, relax and tone the facial muscles, and remove accumulation of dead skin and other build-up, thereby enlivening the skin.

Compared to chemically-focused facials, surgery, or Botox treatments, which may be inappropriate for some patients, may carry significant health risks, or may not fit within your comfort zone or preferences, our facial rejuvenation treatments aim to support the whole body with skin as its expression. Our services are known for being extremely relaxing and for promoting beauty not just from the outside in, but also from the inside out. We aim to enhance the facial treatments by supporting the blood flow, immune system, and lymphatic system, all of which are vital to skin health, all which is supported by research gathered on our Acupuncture web page and re-posted here:
From an anatomical and physiological viewpoint, acupuncture stimulates the body’s tissues (nerves, vessels, myofascial) to respond in such a way that is intended to encourage the healthy circulation of blood , body fluids , and lymph [10, 11] release of pain and stress-relieving hormones [12, 13,14, 15], as well as proper function of muscles, nerves, and lymphatic vessels [16, 17, 18].
What are the treatment options for Cosmetic Acupuncture services?
Like all of our initial assessments with clients, we want to provide a customized and effective treatment, so we begin with a minimum of 15-20 minutes of health assessment, which includes pulse diagnosis, questions, health history, and health goals. Once we determine how best to treat, we will recommend a treatment strategy and work with the client to decide how best to proceed.
We also ensure our patients' comfort by using the highest quality needles, either Japanese Seirin needles or German Asiamed needles. We use varying gauge needles depending on the location and the sensitivity of the patient. Typically, the needle insertion is painless but occasionally comes with a very brief sensation of pain that immediately resolves.
The general treatment strategy for most facial and skin-care treatments includes weekly or bi-weekly sessions that include:
Whole body acupuncture using points on the extremities to address internal health
Herbal Clay Mask (customized for your skin-type)
