Has anyone ever tried it.
Is it effective?

I spoke to someone who does it it Toronto. She said it is $80 per session for 7-10 weekly sessions, and then maintenance once a month. It is a little expensive, but i think it can be worthwhile, if it really works. Also it is completely natural.

I have heard about it! I'm game and I'd love to try it. It makes sense - if you unblock the chi the skin should look rejuvenated. Have you tried it??

Not yet. I am thinking about it.

The person I like to go to is 2 hour away from me. She specializes in it and teaches it. There are some people in my ares who do it too, but i am not sure if I trust them.

Yes I would rather go to someone I trust - since there are needles involved!

Sounds good though! Hmmm....I'm thinking of a career change....Cosmetic Acupuncture!! What are the pre-requisites for signing up for a course, do you know?

Hey, I was thinking about that as a career too. You need to be a doctor of accupuncture fist, which takes a really long time. What do you do for a living now? I am a graphic designer.

Well, sure that makes sense LOL! I guess you would need to know a *little* something about acupuncture in general! And not just jump into Cosmetic Acupuncture. I am a nurse. I was talking to someone about it a while ago and he said that most *serious* acupuncturists scoff at "Cosmetic Acupuncture". It could be a growing niche, though, you know the Baby Boomers will try anything to stay young!! I hope this really takes off! I would try it in a heartbeat! Thanks for posting this!!! Do you think you are interested in the Dr of Acupuncture thing? Sounds hard.

So explain to me what this entails? I know what regular accupuncture is. What do they do for cosmetic? Little needles inserted where you have wrinkles, etc?

it's a 3 years college degree in Canada, I used to work for an accupuncture and we still in touch, I told him about this treatment few years ago, and he doesn't beleive in this. they use a tens machine hook to needles, Suzan Sumers advertise one without needles (of course) Fawnie would know about this. I'm trying to find her site. but what I do I have a tens machin for $50 (you can google it you will have plenty of site who sell them) and I do a once a week routine, no extraordinary result, it puff the face, it stimulates muscles and all this without needles.

Hmmm....now that sounds interesting...I have a TENS unit around here somewhere. I wouldn't know where to place the electrodes. Where do you place them Marie?

3 years isn't that long, really. But in USA you probably have to have a degree first, such as chiropractor or MD or OD. I will check into it. Doctor Fawnie, Cosmetic Acupuncture. One chair, no waiting! We do animals too!

Fawnie, if you are a nurse, you know a lot about the human body already, so it would be a easier for you to learn accupuncture if you wanted to. I am not really going to go to college for 3 years to learn accupuncture, although I would if I had tons of cash and did not have to work.
Marypop, do you have the Facemaster by Susan Sommers?

yes Gymrat that is the one, you can do the same with a tens unit. I don't use the pads I use where are the pads are hook to, of course if you are to spend money, I think Susan Sumores is more friendly users, handles... me I only have the extremities, a bit tiny, but I'm sure it does the same! at first I did it almost every day but now once a week, electricity dries the skin, I think it's more worth it thant the Baby Q.

Come on Fawnie we could do this!! Those needles are tiny!! I am now used to the basting size!!

I am going to have to look into this more. Especially if Suzanne Somers likes it-

No I don't Nicole, but if my tens quit on me I will get Susan's Facemaster.
Fawnie I'm sure you will get credited for courses you already have. Have a look I'm sure you will find something.
