"I had an excrutiating torn hip flexor, which prevented me from sleeping and working. After two sessions of acupuncture and cupping with Robin, my pain reduced by 90% and I could sleep again. I go for maintenance treatments regularly to keep everything working smoothly, and to keep my stress levels manageable. It is utterly relaxing, and I'm fully back in business." - LL

Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation: "Inner Flow, Outward Glow"
"Traditional Chinese Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation", sometimes called "the acupuncture face-lift" is a full-body health treatment that emphasizes the Qi ("chee" or vital energy), health and vitality of the face. The treatment works on the health of the entire body, and works to tighten facial muslces that sag, and to relax muscles that have tightened from every day expression. Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation is popular in Los Angeles and NYC, when people want to improve their facial appearance but do not want to inject potentially harmful fillers, toxins or undergo plastic surgery.
