Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most refined systems of medicine in the world. Developed several thousand years ago in China, it is based in harmonious laws of nature and how they function in the human body, mind, and spirit. Today, acupuncture is used by one-third of the world as a primary healthcare system.
Acupuncture is the insertion of fine, disposable needles into the body at specific points on the body that have been found to have a higher electrical conductance and a larger concentration of nerves and blood vessels. The Chinese have identified these points over a period of two thousand years. Recently, scientific research and biomedical studies have confirmed their locations. Studies indicate that acupuncture influences the central and peripheral nervous system.
I was introduced to Sherrie Matthews and the amazing practice of facial acupuncture through my friend Carol Anne – and after my first session, found myself completely in love. A non-invasive process that draws upon the ancient Chinese wisdom related to longevity, beauty and balance, the experience was so relaxing and grounding, and I knew right away that it was something I wanted to implement into my long-term wellness regime.
