This course will allow acupuncturists to apply the basic principles of Chinese Medicine in order to provide in-depth facial rejuvenation treatments for a wide-range of commonly seen issues.
The practical applications of facial rejuvenation can be a lucrative service for those practitioners who choose to incorporate it into their TCM practice!
Four areas will be comprehensively covered over the 2 day workshop including:
- Point selection and acupuncture needling techniques for conditions such as dark circles, puffy eyes, drooping skin, scars, fine lines and wrinkles will be introduced. Constitutional imbalances will also be addressed.
- Participants will also learn how to do a deep, soothing, acupressure-based face massage, utilizing acupuncture points to stimulate qi and blood in the face and neck areas.
Facial toning (Facial Yoga) exercises will be learnt so that practitioners can pass this onto clients to facilitate self-care and improvement.
- The latest Facial cupping techniques will be demonstrated and covered in depth.
Please be ready to give and receive a treatment in class. Please arrive at the course without any make-up or facial hair (beards/moustaches).
Course material and supplies will be provided.
*A bonus self-cupping set will be given as a gift to each participant completing the 2-day workshop.
