  Acupuncture Therapy in Toronto  

At MP Herbal Clinic, we provide a wholistic approach to healing with a compassionate heart while using ancient Chinese Acupuncture techniques.  Originating in China over 4000 years ago, Acupuncture remains to be one of the primary modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This treatment involves the insertion of needles into acupuncture points, which are entryways into the body’s energetic channels (meridians). It is through these points that the body’s vital energy can be stimulated or sedated to restore balance on an emotional, spiritual, and physical level.

  Cosmetic Acupuncture  

Cosmetic Acupuncture (CA) is a painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging.   It includes Acupuncture Face-lift & Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into acupuncture points on the face. Though facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can sometimes be referred as an Acupuncture Facelift, it is more than a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the entire body look and feel younger.

Inserting needles into acupuncture points on the face results in a rush of blood circulation, causing the skin to tighten and firm, nourishing the skin, oxygenating and moisturizing it from inside out. More circulation enables the body to produce more collagen, giving the skin more elasticity and tightness to help with sagging skin, wrinkles and double chins.
