If you suffer from migraines (or just scowl a lot), you’ll benefit from acupuncture—on your face. Seriously. With facial acupuncture you’ll experience a sort of natural face-lift. You can expect an improvement in skin tightness (i.e. fewer visible lines and wrinkles), clarity, and evenness of tone.
That’s not all, according to the University of California San Diego. Case-controlled clinical studies have shown acupuncture can be an effective treatment for diseases and conditions all over the body like depression, insomnia, anxiety, headache, knee, lower back (including sciatica), and neck pain, tennis elbow, sprain, and arthritis—even improve digestive function and your overall sense of well-being.
“Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites—commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints,” UC San Diego says on their site. Most people feel minimal or no discomfort as the fine needles are placed, even after the five to 30-minute session progresses.
