What can be considered as simple aesthetic factors (wrinkles, cellulite, adipose deposition, skin sagging, etc.) is actually a consequence of a general imbalance involving the body's systems.

By recovering the physiological structure of the fat tissue, restoring the endocrine balance, detoxifying the extra cellular matrix, and promoting a correct metabolic functioning, can we expect to stimulate and repair the tissues' tonicity, to help soften wrinkles, reduce adipose tissue, skin sagging, cellulitis, and reduced vascularity?  YES, we can - with the MEI ZEN Cosmetic Acupuncture System! Many people, including Oprah - in her magazine, O, believe that facial wrinkles are the most obvious sign of getting old with the corresponding decrease in youth, vitality and the consequent loss of self esteem. Apart from external beauty, the skin also reflects a person's troubles, anxiety and pain.

We provide a natural approach to Youthful Appearance

Discover Facial Acupuncture and find the beauty secrets used by Asian nobility for thousands of years.  Now you can harness this time-honored wisdom to reclaim a radiant and youthful appearance.  Reverse the agining process naturally, with no cosmetic surgery facelifts, Botox, or anti-aging laser peels needed to achieve beautiful skin.

Non-Surgical Facial & Cosmetic Acupuncture - A time-tested solution to an age-old problem

The non-surgical Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture procedure is a holistic, natural and comprehensive skin rejuvenation program designed to restore, rejuvenate and relax.  Drawn from the ancient texts of Chinese medicine, the Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture is a relatively painless, natural technique.  Small,, less than hair-width acupuncture needles are placed in a precise configuration just under the skin's surface to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.  It is an excellent natural and safe alternative to cosmetic surgery face lift and Botox treatments.


The results of cosmetic acupuncture anti-aging treatments reflect not only a change in external appearance, but also an improvement in total body wellness.  Specifically, you may notice:

    • More radiant, beautiful skin and the fading of age spots
    • Disappearance and improvement in the fine lines of the face and a diminshing effect on deeper wrinkles
    • Improved muscle tone and a firmer jaw line, as well as reduction in the beginning of jowls
    • Reduction or elimination of rosacea and acne
    • Moisturized softer skin and a more even skin tone
    • Reduction in puffinessdue to improved metabolism

Additionally, there are positive side effects to both the facial skin rejuvenation and abdominal cosmetic acupuncture procedures that include:

  • A clearing of acne and rosacea
  • Fewer hot flashes and night sweats
  • Reduced Symptoms of Depression & Mild Anxiety
  • Better Digestive and sleep cycles
  • Enhanced overall appearance and health

For those who opt for abdominal acupuncture, benefits include: increased fertility and/or sex drive


Promotes blood and lymph circulation; increased circulation dilates peripheral blood vessels for better distribution of oxygen and nutrients as well as cellular regeneration.

Rehydrates the skin's external layers through stimulation of the secretion of the sweat and sebacious glands which encourages the regeneration of healthy skin cells.

Helps exfoliation, aids the proliferation of new skin cells, increases nutrition to the skin's surface, improves the quality of the skin and promotes a healthy glow.

Allows healthy "breathing" of the skin, increasing the skin's protective ability to ward off infections and clogged pores.

Increases oxygen consumption of the skin's external layer, speeding up the release of carbon dioxide and nitrogen at the cellular level, helping to keep skin deeply clean; contributes to reducing the accumulation of excess grease on the skin's surface.

Stimulates the production of elastin and 4 collagen proteins in the skin to reduce and soften wrinkles.

Reduces and relaxes the tension in the nerves and muscles from stress, thus improving the integrity of the skin resulting in improved overall facial appearance.


A program is tailored to your individual needs incorporating:

    • Acupuncture, facial, neck, decolletage or abdominal, and overall balancing
    • Herbal Tonic Therapy to restore balance and overall health
    • Food Therapy to maximize results
    • Eastern Nutritional Counseling
    • Mind Body Therapies (Zyto, Biopuncture, and other modalities)
    • Organic Skin Care products (including Arbonne and Mei Zen)
    • Facial Massages to increase circulation


How successful is cosmetic acupuncture?  A study published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture showed that of 300 people who received facial acupuncture, 90% saw marked results after just one course of treatment. 

How long your new look will last depends a lot on your lifestyle, and whether you are willing to address other areas that may need attention such as exercise, nutrition, and stress reduction.  But at a fraction of the cost of other procedures, cosmetic acupuncture is a sound alternative that can restore your radiant glow both inside and out.


A typical protocol begins with a consultation to determine your overall health and if you qualify for the procedure.  We will also discuss your goals and which procedure you are interested in (facial vs neck/decolletage vs abdominal).  This consultation runs 15-30 minutes and is free of charge.  This can be conducted over the phone, as well. (Look for our postcard, coming out SOON - to a town near you!)

If you qualify for treatment, then a 1/5 hour session is scheduled to include a complete evaluation, diagnosis, ad overall body balancing treatment.  We then schedule a course of treatments that run two times per week for five weeks.  During this time, herbs, vitamins, and foods will be recommended that are specifically tailored for your overall health and your stated goals for facial rejuvenation.  You will also be given qi gong exercises and recommendations for skin care.
