What is Facial Acupuncture?

Last month we let you know about one type of acupuncture specialization, Orthopedic Acupuncture.

This month we introduce another type of specialty acupuncture: Facial Acupuncture.

Gentle. Natural. Low-risk. Effective. Transformative. The art and science of Facial Acupuncture addresses the inner and outer manifestations of stress, environmental damage, natural aging, hormonal changes and genetics that lead to fine lines and wrinkles, loss of fullness, sagging, puffiness and dull and uneven complexions.

With specialized, focused treatments that promote circulation, cellular renewal and collagen production, Facial Acupuncture relaxes and tones the many tiny facial muscles that give our faces their unique beauty. Always paired with balancing and relaxing body acupuncture, our facial acupuncture treatments produce results you and your loved ones will notice, along with deeper sleep, better digestion and other rejuvenating benefits of stress reduction.

 “Do you feel that you don’t recognize yourself in the mirror? Or wonder why the stresses of life seem written on your face more than the joys? Are you looking for a cosmetic treatment that doesn’t have negative side effects, is more than skin deep, and won’t leave you looking like a new person, but more like yourself?

I often hear from my facial rejuvenation patients, “I love my face!” - and that fulfills me. Aging is a natural process. To deny or dislike it is to say ‘no’ to reality, which is the primary cause of suffering. How can we age gracefully, and cultivate the most radiant health and peaceful well-being available to us at any given moment?”

What patients are saying…

“I definitely felt more relaxed & grounded after the Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation session. My face was more relaxed and more importantly, it was as if I was "beginning to look like myself again" - which was good to feel.. My skin seems to have improved after the AFR- less dry and less breakouts.”


“Thank you so much for the wonderful Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation treatment. My neck looks fabulous. The quality of my skin is much improved. I look forward to having more treatments. Not only was the treatment fabulous, in addition, you were warm and welcoming. I want to receive services from people who are friendly and warm. I got that from you, which I really appreciate.”


“Thank you, Prajna, for the wonderful service and support that you have provided to me over more than a year. I have seen significant improvement in the dark circles under my eyes and in general have a much healthier skin appearance and tone. The benefits, however, go beyond that. I appreciate the sensitive health assessment that precedes each session and the gentle encouragement and support in working on healthier habits. I look forward to each treatment as a blissful escape from the pressures of a high stress job ~ it is a "spa day" for me as I slip into a deep rest time after the needles are comfortably positioned. I look forward to continuing a series of treatments for a long period of time to maintain the benefits of your unique approach.”


"When I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in some time, I noticed her taking a long look at my face. Later that day, I received an email: "You look so beautiful. I hope you don't mind my asking, but have you had work done?" No, I didn't mind her asking - I am happy to tell as many people as possible about the amazing results of Prajna's facial rejuvenation acupuncture. My face feels vibrant and alive; I sense its connection to the rest of my body. I hadn't realized before receiving this treatment that I had somehow assumed that my face and my body were separated. Of course they are not and now that I sense the connection, I can feel my vital energy - supported by Prajna's skillful hands - nourishing my face. Since Prajna always takes a facial rejuvenation session as an opportunity to check in with my general health - and to treat for any symptoms - I know that I am getting the benefit of deep general care. I leave her office feeling rejuvenated in body and spirit!" C. B.

I wanted to rejuvenate my face...I didn't hate my face but I wanted to look more rested. I went to Prajna and in 3 sessions (of the 12 they suggest) my face looks so rested, less lines, really I love my face!! It is so easy, so painless, and have about 2 hours where no one can bother me is so relaxing! For every woman or man who simply wants to look and feel better I highly recommend Acupuncture for Rejuvenation. And Prajna is a mixture of great science and art in my opinion.Since I am someone who would never have a facelift or injections...this is the perfect solution. You will be amazed at the results!!
