This course presents a professional as well as intuitive and creative approach to Facial Acupuncture. The face reflects our state of being, especially after the age of 40, as lines, marks and puffiness in certain areas are starting to show our more prominent expressions permanently. The face not only reflects the whole body, but also the state of the soul. Expressions that are used often can almost get ‘frozen’ onto the face as we get older and become like a hardened mask that we present to the world. The inner well-being and health of a person is connected to the condition of the face. Rebalancing the face thereby also results in increased physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. This workshop focuses on how to use a simple, intuitive approach to rebalance different areas of the face, relieve the appearance of puffiness, soften wrinkles and increase the natural radiance of the face, thus resulting in a more youthful appearance. The hardened mask softens and the Spirit shines through again. Results are visible even after the first treatment.
The day will contain a lot of practical experience that will give the students confidence and skills to practise these techniques safely in their own clinics
