Kensho skin treatment room

Acupuncture

Acupuncture uses the body’s own mechanisms to restore health and vitality to the skin.
At Kensho, we use a number of techniques in our skin treatments.

Moxibustion
The herb Ai Ye (mugwort, Artemisia vulgaris) is burned on acupuncture points to regulate menstrual cycles and hormones that can lead to breakouts.

Cupping & Guasha
Cupping and Guasha is an ancient Chinese medicine facial treatment that encourages blood flow and skin repair.

Auriculotherapy (ear acupuncture)
Magnetic pellets are applied to points in the ear and retained for a few days to help with any cravings or stress that can trigger a skin flareup.
