I have always been fascinated by acupuncture, I find it to be the most transformative of therapies for people whether they have issues with pain, sleep, anxiety, addiction, hormonal dysfunction, digestive discomfort, the list of applications is a long one!
Through the insertion of fine needles into the skin, traditional/dry needling acupuncture stimulates the nervous & muscular systems, & will work on meridians (energy channels) to bring an individual back into balance. I myself have had no end of successes with acupuncture – as a child I had chronic sinus issues, in my late teens I had terrible anxiety & slept poorly, & progressing into my 20’s I had my ‘perfect storm’ moment with all manner of digestive & hormonal issues that lead to a whole host of bits & pieces happening to my physical & emotional self. All of these were negated, or at least improved significantly (to the point at which structural or other functional intervention then worked alongside) by acupuncture.
So what happens when we apply this incredible wisdom to skincare….well truly amazing things to be blunt!
