What is a session like?
A session involves the placement of many tiny needles around the face, neck and scalp. They are the very smallest and highest quality needles available, in order to minimize discomfort. A single session might use 50 needles on the face, scalp and neck. Many of these are so small and shallow that they will not be felt, though some will be inserted more deeply in order to achieve the needed effects of stimulating ligaments, relaxing muscle tissue and building tone.
It takes approximately 20-30 minutes to carefully administer the needles. You will then rest and relax for 20-30 minutes before they are removed. Sessions may also involve the optional placement of an abdominal heating pad (there is a close connection between the abdomen and in the face according to Eastern medicine theory); a Korean sheet mask; and stimulation of acupuncture points on the arms and legs to further support the health of the face, neck and scalp.
