What is acupuncture ?Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. These points constitute pathways or meridians, which are part of an intrinsic organ system. A continuum of energy called chi (qi) flows through these meridians. This vital energy or life force regulates spiritual, emotional, mental and physical health.

Acupuncture can relieve various problems such as allergies, anxiety and depression. It has also been used to treat addictions to alcohol and drugs, and to help quit smoking.

The list of conditions that acupuncture can be used to treat includes anemia, arthritis, asthma, ADD, Bell’s palsy, bronchitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic fatigue, Crohn’s, colds, constipation, cough, diarrhea, digestive problems, dizziness, eczema, edema, endometriosis, emotional problems, eye problems, infertility, fibromyalgia, gout, headaches and migraines, heart palpitations, heel pain, high blood pressure, incontinence, indigestion, insomnia, IBS, knee pain, lower back pain, libido, menopause and hot flashes, menstrual irregularities, nausea, neck pain, plantar fasciitis, premenstrual syndrome, prostate problems, pneumonia, reproductive problems, sciatica and shoulder pain; And the list goes on and on.

Marco Island Acupuncture also offers cosmetic acupuncture, which is a natural approach to reducing the signs of aging. Tiny needles are placed on the face to stimulate blood circulation and increase collagen production, which improves muscle tone and elasticity. The increased blood flow gives a healthy glow to the face, making it look younger.

Regular cosmetic acupuncture treatments will promote a subtle and healthy change in the skin, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

Benefits of cosmetic acupuncture include natural non-invasive treatment, reduction of fine lines, softening of deeper wrinkles, lifting and toning of facial muscles, even skin tone and texture, reduction of bags under the eyes, improved complexion and a beautiful glow, better skin hydration, and increased circulation and vitality.
