Oriental Facials

Help You Look Good & Feel Good, Inside & Out!

True beauty is a reflection of good health. When we feel healthy, balanced and vibrant, our inner beauty will shine from our eyes and skin.

Facial acupuncture focuses on improving facial health, but it’s actually a treatment for the whole body. It’s a holistic therapy that slows down the face's aging process by stimulating collagen and increasing blood flow, while delivering additional benefits to the entire body.

The face tells a story about one’s health. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), each area of the face relates to different organ systems and emotions. Licensed acupuncturist, Soraya Applegate, begins a treatment with a full TCM diagnosis. Then, by focusing on the correct meridians in the body, she uses facial acupuncture to stimulate the body’s natural processes of cell reproduction, immune function and hormonal balance.

Many people receive cosmetic acupuncture treatments for its anti-aging benefits, specifically to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The goal of facial acupuncture is to improve internal health while also reducing these unwanted signs of aging on the face.

The gentle insertion of tiny needles in specific acupoints on the face improves the quality and luster of the skin, as well as diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment works by increasing the circulation of oxygen and blood to the face, while also stimulating the collagen/elastin, so the face looks younger and more vibrant.

While the face is rejuvenating externally, meaningful health changes are occurring internally. The results include feeling stronger and healthier. Facial acupuncture enhances the natural, healthy glow of one’s inner spirit which in turn, appears visibly on the face. Acupuncture can help us age in a healthy, more vibrant and balanced way.

An oriental facial at Soulistic Holistics Hawaii is a blissful beauty treatment that includes acupuncture, jade roller therapy and acusonic facial massage. Jade rollers were traditionally used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and clear fluid congestion by increasing lymphatic drainage. Jade remains cold while in contact with the skin—this helps close the pores and tighten the skin.

Experience the benefits of this non-surgical face lift! If you want a natural way to treat signs of aging, while increasing your health and wellbeing, schedule a treatment with Soraya at Soulistic Holistics Hawaii.
