It’s really no secret that traditional acupuncture has a number of health benefits, if not more than we will ever really know. If you ask anyone that has experienced it on a regular basis, you are sure to become a follower of traditional chinese medicine (TCM), as it is more formally known in professional circles.
We’ve learned over time that acupuncture also has external benefits–it can aid in clearing up skin, improve circulation and even prompt lymphatic drainage–a la depuffing the face. As a frequent flier, it’s to be expected that I check in with London-based pointspace for the latest and greatest in acupuncture when in town.
After months of intensive training and building on her already impressive skills and techniques, Ka-Hang Leoungk, (aka pointspace) has introduced a new treatment into her practice of TCM. Well-known across London for her bespoke facial acupuncture treatments, the new Age Defense procedure offers all the cosmetic and healing effects of TCM, but amped up.
For those seeking a “no needle” treatment, Age Defense is a must. It is dubbed as a “dry” facial, as no potions or lotions are used. Just the gentle, expert hands and techniques of Ka-Hang, who will massage and sooth the skin while concentrating on the areas that need it most. Double-dip (as I did) and have needles placed on afterwards. The feeling is amazing and the after glow is noticeable. For weeks after, my face felt (and even upper back) relaxed and refreshed! It is essentially a detox and rejuvenation process rolled into one. Something we can all use during the holiday season and winter days. Weekly treatments are ideal; it is now part of my post-flight routine.Back to Blog
