Acupuncture for Beauty

Acupuncture is best known for treating ailments like pain, allergies or anxiety, but there has also been interest in using needles to enhance beauty. Every time a needle is inserted into the skin, the body sees it as a microinjury and increases circulation to the area involved. This is beneficial for something like an old injury producing chronic discomfort, but it also has implications for skin health and aging. Cosmetic acupuncture and microneedling are two of the most popular techniques that take advantage of this response, and they are each fairly different.

How AAT Can Help with Allergy Symptoms Related to Pollen, Dust, and Other Environmental Factors. Are you tired of feeling like your allergy symptoms have taken over your life? Do you dread going outside in the springtime because of all the pollen? Have you tried every over-the-counter medication out there with little relief? It might be time to consider Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) as a potential solution to your environmental allergy symptoms.

Pressure of Shiatsu

Perpendicular penetration without side-to-side motion, unlike many massage techniques where movement across the surface is emphasized, Shiatsu uses penetration at each point, perpendicular to the body surface, to active the spot (“tsubo”) on the meridians.

The Concept of Qi

In TCM, the body has a system of meridians through which Qi and Blood flow, and acupuncture aids in making sure the meridians stay clear and the body’s internal harmony stays balanced. Most people can accept the analogy of the meridian being like a blood vessel in which blood flows. If blood doesn’t flow smoothly through the arteries, veins, and capillaries, a blockage can cause serious complications like heart attacks and strokes. The concept of Qi is usually the hangup here.

AAT option for you

These real-life examples illustrate the effectiveness of AAT in providing relief from a wide range of symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities. It is essential to note that while AAT has been shown to be effective for many people, results may vary from person to person. The number of treatments required, and the duration of treatment will depend on the severity of the patient’s condition. It is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional who is trained in AAT to determine if the therapy is a suitable treatment option for your specific needs.

Acu-pressure points

It is known that the body has acu-pressure points called “tsubo” that can receive the pressing by the practitioner, the muscle gives way to the penetrating force to let it enter, rather than being pushed away by pressure. The result is an entirely different experience than mere finger-pressing. The practitioner is required to have the correct body position in relation to the recipient and be mindful of the technique being used.

The goal of acupuncture is to wake up and support the body’s innate healing capabilities, to work with the natural processes that are imbued in the body without considering whether they’re there because of evolution, creationism, intelligent design, or any other reason.
