Facial Rejuvenation

Facial rejuvenation is an integral part of Chinese medicine, it dates back from the early Western Zhou period (1121-770 B.C), and was used to treat a variety of skin conditions, as well as to reduce the signs of aging.

Techniques and protocols have changed over the years, but in essence, the goal is still the same: to treat the body to allow it to find its own way to health.  A healthy skin is a beautiful skin, a body which is able to produce more collagen will improve the look and feel of the skin.
