Mrs Wakefield shows exactly how to use special selected acupuncture points in tandem with muscle structure. Her way of facial acupuncture needling according to constitutional patterns help every patient. Facial acupuncture is different to cosmetic acupuncture. According to each individual physiognomy, a shape of aface, its colouration and its wrinkles are representative of the balance or imbalance of the organ systems and the emotional core of your patient.
Fine needles on a variety of different acupuncture points on the patient?s face, neck and around the eyes to simulate the body’s natural energies (qi). Since muscle groups are addressed the similar way as acupuncture points, the face lifts itself, via the acupuncture points, through the muscles’ toning and tightening action. The needles also stimulate blood and circulation, improving facial colour.

Wakefield?s book presents a complete facial and recommended constitutional treatment protocol including needling instructions, charts and photos that will clarify the details of the treatments. A full topical Chinese herbal treatment for the face that can be integrated with facial needling to achieve more impressive results will also be included. Benefits, contraindications, recommended treatment duration and frequency, short and long-term effects, maintenance treatments, managing patient expectations will all be covered. The details of Facial acupuncture covers will provide practitioners with information for them to successfully become experts of facial acupuncture.
