You’re 39 years old and have run into two significant difficulties in life: One, you can’t get pregnant, and two, you are seriously starting to look like your mother. Your solution? Look to the healing powers of Acupuncture. Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing practices, dating back in Chinese history over 4,000 years, healing everything from headaches and insomnia to wrinkles and infertility—it is known to treat over 40 coniditions. One of our spas, ilumina Healing Sanctuary in Scottsdale, Arizona, has made a name a name for itself as one of the top Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine facilities in the state. Their practitioners are highly trained and renowned for their gentleness, effectiveness and women’s focused care. So let’s start the mending process, shall we? FIRST, THE BABY: Needles of the holistic sort have been proven to help with infertility, conception, pregnancy, and post-partum care. So much so that women who are using In Vitro to get pregnant are more successful if they pair it with acupuncture. Dr. Dana Price at ilumina Healing Sanctuary is one of only four doctors in Arizona who is an American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) Certified Practitioner. She is celebrating ten years in practice and has been working with western doctors, OBGYNs and hospitals who believe in the power of acupuncture in helping the body conceive and heal itself. NEXT, YOUR WRINKLES: Embrace the natural face lift known as facial rejuvenation, acupuncture face-lift or cosmetic acupuncture. Whatever you want to call it, it’s caught the attention of more and more women who prefer not to undergo surgery or chemical injections like Botox, yet aren’t keen on the sundried fruit look for skin. The idea behind the success? People have a lot tension which gets concentrated in facial muscles causing wrinkles. Acupuncture creates relief and softens the tension so hinders the lines from forming. Read my account of an Acupuncture Facial last year—I can tell you that I definitely saw and felt a difference in just one session, in terms of my skin looking healthier and more vibrant.
