Mei Zen CosmeticAcupucture
This method of cosmetic acupuncture brings collagen back to the surface of the skin giving a more youthful appearance. This modality requires a 10 week commitment from the patient. Treatment consists of 3 sessions per week for the first 5 weeks and twice per week for the remaining 5 weeks. I have also learned a facial cupping technique that I combine with the acupuncture to enhance the treatment. Initial interview with treatment.
Cupping has been used throughout for many years and it may be known by different names in other cultures. Small “jars” are placed on the body creating suction. Utilizing the suction, this treatment can relax tense muscles, improve circulation, and calm the central nervous system. By placing oil on the skin and then using the cups, the cups can be slid over the body and be used as a type of massage.
This practice entails a very light touch to balance the craniosacral system of the body. The craniosacral system is inclusive of the central and peripheral nervous systems, the bones, fluids and connective tissue of the cranium and and the spinal area. The effect of the balancing the craniosacral system can be felt anywhere in the body. Many people find the quite relaxing. It is used for a wide variety of health problems.
NADA is the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association. Dr. Michael Smith discovered that these five needles in the ear gives tremendous help to people who are trying to overcome drug addiction and alcoholism. I feel that it can be used to help overcome any type of addictive behavior. This treatment helps addicts dig deep into their being and do the hard work that is needed to overcome their problem. I have used this protocol to help people in stressful situations. One of my patients told me that it helped her to “move on” from her problem instead of being stuck in it. I believe that it would be helpful to help those with PTSD.
The art of meditation consists of emptying the mind of thought and bringing the mind from the alpha state into the more relaxed beta state. Some people concentrate on the breath or a mantra or listen to a guided meditation. I have taught meditation in a half way house for young adults who were transferring from drug/alcohol detoxification centers. I have also taught meditation groups and used the NADA protocol with great results.
For those who prefer a non needle treatment, I have learned to use tuning forks on acupuncture points. I have also learned how to clear one’s aura, relax the central nervous system and clear the chakras using tuning forks.
Shiatsu massage uses pressure from the fingers. It is one of the oldest forms of Oriental Medicine. Pressure is exerted from the fingers and travels the path of acupuncture meridians.

What Is Acupuncture?
Although acupuncture is practiced worldwide, many people have a limited understanding of what it is and how it works. Although there is a range of different approaches to acupuncture, the core concepts of acupuncture are the same across the globe. Acupuncture is a type of alternative medicine. It’s considered to be a complementary medicine, which means that it’s intended to be used alongside standard medical treatment.
Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles across various regions of the body. Needles are inserted at varying depths depending on the type of treatment. The needles typically remain on the skin for a short period of time before they are removed. While in the body, the needles can stimulate tissue, nerves, and muscles. Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of conditions, including chronic pain, nausea, and stress.
Where Did It Come From?
Acupuncture originated in ancient China. Although the exact dates of its origins are unknown, ancient acupuncture needles can be traced back to 100 BC. Acupuncture was also spoken of in records of history from around that time, where it is treated as an established practice.
Although acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of traditional Chinese medicine, it has grown and evolved over time. Ancient acupuncture needles were quite thick, which sometimes caused skin damage. During the first century A.D., acupuncture books began to be published, and acupuncturists began to revise their practices.
As with traditional medicine, the effectiveness of acupuncture has improved over time. Practitioners have worked to test and refine treatments, and numerous organizations have been created to research acupuncture. The success of this research helped to make acupuncture popular worldwide.
What Are The Benefits of Acupuncture?
Currently, the World Health Organization has found acupuncture to be effective at treating 28 different kinds of conditions. These include migraines, nausea, chronic pain, and dry mouth. Even if a research hasn’t been done into acupuncture treatments for a certain type of condition, it’s possible that it might have therapeutic benefits.
One of the best things about acupuncture is that it’s extremely safe and has few to no side effects. People often use acupuncture alongside other types of medication. It’s also commonly used by people receiving chemotherapy or radiation treatment. This allows people to take less medication and mitigate many of the negative side effects of their treatment.
Acupuncture has also been found to be very effective for people who don’t respond well to pain medications. Research has suggested that acupuncture can improve the body’s natural ability to deal with pain, which means that it can work when painkillers don’t.
Unlike some other forms of alternative medicine, acupuncture has gained increased respect from medical professionals. Numerous studies have demonstrated its effectiveness, and it has been shown to be a potent treatment for an array of difficult-to-treat conditions.
