Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture History

The practice of acupuncture to enhance beauty dates back to China's Song Dynasty (960-1279 A.D.). It was used during this time by the Empress and the Emperor's concubines.

Known in China as Mei Rong, these techniques are referred to in the West as:

  • Acupuncture Facelift
  • Cosmetic Acupuncture
  • Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture


A typical course of treatment consists of 10 to 15 consecutive treatments. The first 6-10 treatments should be performed twice per week. After the initial course of treatments, monthly or seasonal maintenance sessions are recommended to prolong the effects of the acupuncture.

Nutritional changes, herbal supplements, herbal/flower essences, and meditation coaching may all be included in the program to further support the process of enhancing health and revealing beauty. Rebecca Rice and Liza Pollock are both licensed acupuncturists in New York, and have both been certified in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture.

Acupuncture Basics

The thousands of acupuncture points throughout the body present areas where an individual's qi can be accessed and adjusted. The stimulation of these points brings about a shift in qi flow through the pathways, called meridians, that connect these points to the whole of the body's energetic anatomy.

The acupuncturist uses the specific character of each point, and precise pathway of each meridian to decide where a needle needs to be inserted in order to restore the proper flow of qi in the body. When this is achieved, an immediate increase in wellness is often experienced, with subsequent treatments building and adding upon each other.

Acupuncture needles are extremely thin, sterile, and are not reused. Unlike hypodermic needles, acupuncture needles are solid and hair-thin. In most areas of the body, they are inserted no more than 1/2 inch. There may be a small amount of discomfort at the initial insertion, but this quickly fades and gives way to the unique sensations of relaxation that typically occur with acupuncture.

At the Center, we use the highest quality acupuncture needles. These needles are sterile, single-use only and are hair thin. Clients rarely feel more than a slight pinch upon insertion, which quickly fades away. Acupuncture sessions are deeply relaxing, and many clients fall asleep during their treatment.
