Cosmetic Acupuncture Facial

cultivating inner and outer radiance

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a specialty form of acupuncture that centers around internal health and external radiance.  Cosmetic Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into the face, as well as other specialized techniques such as micro-current laser therapy, facial cupping and massage, jade-rolling, micro-dermabrasion, and more. Facial acupuncture improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and puffy eyes, while decreasing the severity of a variety of skin conditions including acne and rosacea, just to name a few. With a series of treatments, facial acupuncture is very rejuvenating to the face and leads to long lasting effects of improved skin tone and appearance, as well as improved muscle function and strength.Your first visit will include a thorough Chinese Medicine evaluation of your face and body, a review of your medical history, and more. From there, we will proceed to a comprehensive Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment. Subsequent touch-up visits will include a brief discussion to review your progress,  and any other new concerns. From there, we will proceed to treatment. Most patients notice instant changes in their skin's appearance immediately after treatment. However, Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture does require a series of treatments to maintain this improvement, much like Constitutional Acupuncture sessions or any other Cosmetic service.
I work with all skin types, all genders, and patients of all ages. Everyone can reap the amazing benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture!

Body Work

aligning the self

looking to explore alternatives for pain relief?
you've come to the right place.

cupping massage
cupping is a traditional form of chinese medicine bodywork that relieves "stagnation". This translates to increased circulation and vitality and decreased pain and muscle tension. while cupping is similar to traditional massages, it reaches a deeper level of the physical and energetic body.

e-stim needling
electrical stimulation or "E-stim" involves adding light electrical stimulation to acupuncture needles. e-stim is very effective for treating pain, addressing neurological symptoms (such as paralysis, memory loss, dizziness, etc.), and mental-emotional dysregulation. e-stim enhances the ability of the acupuncture needles to open blockages, and circulate the lymph and blood flow throughout the body.

featured testimonial

"Dr. Naika has been what I can only describe as my deep wellness advocate for 6months. She meets my body's needs where they are the day of the session while still attending to long term goals. She does this effortlessly. She has been pivotal in my successful journey with PCOS. She is able to recalibrate my total software consistently be it with cupping or acupuncture, at home remedies or what sometimes just feels like environment she creates in her office. Each session feels like a deep breath in a super chaotic week. I could not more highly recommend for simply just a healing experience." - C.A
