Wrinkles- diagnosis and treatment

3 hours lecture

Wrinkles are one of the main and most common cosmetic problems that women tend to complain about. Throughout the history women searched for the beauty secrets and how to look younger than their real age.


In these days when many injections, cosmetic surgeries and face lifting are available to all, there is a rising need to an alternative solution. And guess what, acupuncture is the answer!

 In this lecture I introduce the basic understanding to wrinkles from the Chinese medicine point of view. I explain and demonstrate the ways to diagnose different kinds or wrinkles and how to treat them with acupuncture, which is an amazing tool that Chinese medicine has to offer.
