Cosmetic Acupuncture Sydney

Facial rejuvenation with cosmetic acupuncture:

Cosmetic acupuncture as performed at Sydney’s Natural Health Practice by Rodd Sanchez (Aesthetic acupuncture) has increased in popularity in recent years with both celebrities and the general population. People are opting for a more safe and natural alternative to cosmetic surgical procedures.


Cosmetic acupuncture is an art form which has had an extended period of usage in traditional Chinese medicine, dating back hundreds of years. Aesthetic/cosmetic acupuncture was initially used for the ladies of the imperial courts however it is now available for everyone to experience.

An aesthetic acupuncture session will include a comprehensive Chinese medical diagnosis to ascertain the best way to achieve the greatest results for the individual. At the Sydney cosmetic Acupuncture Clinic, Rodd prefers a six-step approach to treatment which encompasses the use of:

  • Traditional body acupuncture points
  • Auricular (ear acupuncture) points
  • Specific  localised cosmetic acupuncture facial points
  • Individualised herbal medicine prescription
  • Herbal masks and preparations
  • Facial massage

This exclusive acupuncture treatment is employed to give the patient the best possible results (all inclusive). Each session ranges from 1 to 1.5 hours depending on the treatment option.

Unfortunately, not all patients are suitable for this type of treatment so please consult with reception. People with high blood pressure, clotting conditions, those on blood thinning medications or have a tendency towards fainting are best to find an alternative.

Common Mistakes People Make Regarding Facial Acupuncture Sydney

People sometimes think that when a treatment is natural, there’s no need to be forthcoming about existing medical conditions and concerns, they are so wrong. It could be detrimental to their health and the outcome of the treatment the practitioner applies.

  • Withholding information: If we don’t have detailed information, we cannot safely sidestep any problems that may occur. For example, if someone suffers from ITP or is on blood thinning medication, it’s essential to tell your practitioner this as sometimes bleeding, and bruising can occur at insertion sites of acupuncture needles. Not knowing this ahead of time may lead to profuse bleeding, making the experience uncomfortable for the patient and stressful for the practitioner.
  • Incorrect expectations: As with mainstream treatments such as physiotherapy, sometimes you feel worse before you start feeling better. This feeling is occasionally true for acupuncture patients too. You could feel extremely tired after an acupuncture session, and the area where you were treated could be painful for about 24 hours.
  • Going back to normal: After a session of acupuncture, take it easy. Only do light exercise, avoid alcohol and coffee, eat good food, don’t overstimulate yourself, and switch off the TV. Rest is always good after a therapy session.

In general, acupuncture leaves you feeling better, if you are feeling tired that is no cause for alarm, it’s just your personal acupuncture path and your body telling you it needs to rest a little.
