Acufacials to Clear the Complexion

Patients can ditch synthetic solutions in the search for younger-looking skin, thanks to acupuncture. Tiny acuneedles are used in acufacials, a painless way to enhance and clear your complexion, fight signs of aging, and give a more relaxed yet lifted look. The needles work to boost collagen production, which plumps the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. CLICK HERE TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT AT NJ ACUPUNCTURE CENTER.

Relief from Chronic Pain

Most of us experience some level of tension in the neck and shoulders and some even deal with chronic pain disorders. In order to find true balance and wellness, acupuncture alleviates that tension and offers pain relief so patients can live a healthy lifestyle. In some cases, acupuncture has proven to be as effective as prescription medications. By restoring Qi and targeting the root cause of pain, endorphins are released and inflammation is reduced, leaving patients feeling tension-free.

Relief from Allergy Symptoms

The change in seasons often brings about an increase in pollen, mold, and other allergens which can cause sneezing, sniffling, itchy eyes, and headaches. Acupuncture can help lessen the effects of inflammation and pain caused by allergies, giving your immune system the boost it needs to get back on track.

Improved Sleep

Few things are as frustrating as struggling to sleep. Thankfully, acupuncture treatment has been linked to improved sleep and has also been shown to help treat insomnia. When acuneedles are inserted into specific points of the body, they stimulate circulation while easing pain, giving patients a solid night’s sleep.

Natural Stress Relief

To help combat the unique stressors you experience in life, acupuncture works to help calm the central nervous system and release endorphins — the brains natural “feel good” chemicals.
