Acupuncture is a modality that dates back 10,000 years. It has been practiced globally for 100's of years and made its way into popular culture in the United States in the 1970's. One of the first acupuncture clinics in the United States was opened by the Black Panthers and the Young Lords in the Bronx. It was called the Lincoln Detox Center. The main treatment used is called NADA, it is an auricular treatment of 5 points in the ears to help with substance abuse.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine uses a theory of body meridians to diagnose and treat imbalances in the body. Some people find relief from symptoms after just one treatment. Depending on the ailment there may be a short term 1-4 week protocol or a long term 3-10 year protocol and also anything and everything in between.
Acupuncture for the most part is a pain less procedure. Some people feel a little pinch when the needle is inserted.
Facial rejuvenation treatments are about 60 minutes. You will get 40-100 needles in your face and sit with them for 30 minutes. After the acupuncture you will have a lymphatic facial massage with a serum and Jade Gua Sha tool.
Facial acupuncture promotes collagen production in your face making your skin look younger and more supple. Facial acupuncture can also help with pigmentation changes, acne, puffy face, eczema, and redness
Dr. Foster created her own special facial protocol to optimize results. She also makes a special serum in house that is used at the end of the session during the lymphatic drainage gua sha

Cupping is an ancient technique using glass or plastic cups to move out pathogens in the body.
Gua sha is an ancient technique where a tool is used to gently scrap the skin to move stagnate Qi and blood.
Both of these treatments are very helpful for pain management and chronic conditions
Usually after a cupping and gua sha there are marks left on the body that disappear within a 3-10 days
