Have you heard about the newest trend in anti-aging treatments? Celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow and even Sean Connery have! We’re talking about facial acupuncture and we’re super excited about it and about being able to offer it to you here at one of the most innovative spas in Chicago – Spa Space!
What Is Facial Acupuncture?
Acupuncture, as you may know, is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (but you don’t have travel any farther than our spa in downtown Chicago to experience its benefits!) that involves inserting very thin needles at certain strategic points on your body.
Facial acupuncture, not surprisingly, involves the insertion of small acupuncture needles in strategic points on the face as a way to battle the signs of aging.
How Does It Work?
Qi is the life force that is present in each of us. If you have a bad back or you still get angry every time you think of your ex, your qi (it can also be spelled ch’i, but either way, it’s pronounced chee) is out of balance. Depending on what ails you, a trained and licensed acupuncturist will place needles at specific meridian points on your body to facilitate the flow of qui. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture effectively treats a range of common ailments, including back and muscular pain, insomnia, headaches, fatigue, anxiety, and much more.
As far as facial acupuncture goes, those who believe in traditional Chinese medicine, credit the results to the flow of qi throughout the body. There are Western experts, on the other hand, who believe the treatment is effective because it stimulates the production of collagen. You can look at it as win-win.
Here at Spa Space, we like to think that being able to offer you innovative and cutting-edge treatments like facial acupuncture, also known as cosmetic acupuncture, is one of the reasons why we have been repeatedly voted the best spa in Chicago. Of course, we’re also great when it comes to traditional treatments like fabulous facials and massages in Chicago.
