4 Traditional Chinese techniques that can take years off your face

Nowadays, the practical implication of the ancient Chinese wisdom sparks a lot of interests in the modern world among women looking for natural ways to stay young and beautiful.



The history of facial rejuvenation and longevity goes back to the ancient Western Zhou period in China when women started to use dietary adjustments to prevent aging and prolong the youthful appearance of the skin.

More advanced herbal therapies for skin care and facial rejuvenation were starting to develop between 770-221 BC when acupuncture techniques were also added to beautification practices and embellishment processes. For many years to come, acupuncture, herbs, and dietary practices have been used to promote beauty, longevity, and health as the art of facial rejuvenation continues to develop.

Today the practical application of ancient wisdom and knowledge sparks a lot of interests in the modern world among Traditional Chinese Medicine proponents, practitioners, and women looking for natural ways to stay young and beautiful.

According to Dr. Mia Hanh, these are some of the most practiced traditional Chinese treatments that offer a holistic approach to anti-aging:

Gua Sha
The Gua sha treatment is a remedial technique that consists of rubbing of an oiled up area of the body with a special instrument while pressing and stroking in one direction. The facial gua sha is a particular type of massage that uses a special tool to trigger and induce the detoxification of the skin and to relax the face muscles. This can result in better blood circulation and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is widely known and practiced, especially for developing positive energy and its ability to help with certain aesthetic problems.

It involves the use of extra fine gauge filiform acupuncture needles and intradermals. These treatments focus on both heath concerns and beauty, by targeting facial wrinkles, frown lines, eye bags, double chin, and sagging neck, as well as poor digestion, gynecological imbalances, menopause, and sinus congestion, among other syndromes. Constitutional facial acupuncture is a virtually painless method for lessening the indications of the maturing of the skin, with results much more significant than just what is noticeable on the face.
