Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
TCM (traditional chinese medicine) has existed for more than 3000 years and encompasses the use of traditional chinese herbs, acupuncture and even cupping. This eastern philosophy strives to achieve balance through the cultivation of harmony within body organs (theory of yin and yang) and the concept of "Qi" (energy or life force). According to principles of Chinese medicines, blockages in "meridians" or energy channels are believed to be the cause of disease and acupuncture is an effective method to remove these blockages in order to promote the free flow of energy and therefore, health. Very fine disposable needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points and research now shows that acupuncture results in the release of endorphins (which decrease pain sensation), improves circulation and oxygenation, and stimulates organs to function better.
Dr. Faryal Luhar also offers Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture which is a series of treatments focusing on improving the youthfulness, glow and vibrancy of the face and skin with the use of ultra-fine acupuncture needles to clear away blemishes, brighten the skin, eliminate fine lines and reduce wrinkles!
