Collagen Powder for Healthier Skin, Digestion and Joints!

Have you heard a lot of buzz lately about collagen? Are You Looking for something easy to take that can help you feel better and look better, too? Many patients rave about how they can tell a difference in the fullness of their face after taking collagen.

How do you build Collagen in your body?

Collagen hydrolysate powder can help build collagen from the “inside-out.” This tasteless powder mixes into warm water easily. It works the same as the gelatinous substance found in your homemade chicken stock-except it is even more easily digestible!

Where does Collagen Build in your Body?

Taking collagen as a supplement goes to work in your joints and the infrastructure of collagen building in the face, as in filling out the face for wrinkle prevention. Think of collagen as a matrix of built-up netting. This is what makes a baby’s face so full and kissable! It is also one of the easiest proteins to digest. For easiest assimilation in the gut, take the “hydrolysate” powder form. This is key to those of us who have less than ideal digestive systems for a host of reasons, such as auto-immune issues like Hoshimoto’s Hypothryoidism.

Aleesha D Acupuncture now carries Collagen hydrolysate powder by Great Lakes brand, one of the most top-rated and least inexpensive of the collagens on the market. It is grass-fed and pasture-raised. Stop by and pick up a canister or on-the-go packets for travel. Aleesha never travels without it!

Sure, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture decreases deep wrinkles, erases fine wrinkles and helps the body boost collagen, but did you know it also helps the Body?…

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture at Aleesha D Acupuncture involves acupuncture in the face area and other parts of the body which correspond to facial concerns of the patient and have the added benefit of working on the overall constitution of the body.

Much of what is going on constitutionally within an individual’s body can be seen on the face. Acupuncturists are able to treat not only wrinkles, crow’s feet and neck jowls…treatments go beyond vanity and wanting to look good to wanting to feel good on the inside and out. Issues such as imbalanced digestion can be worked on, whether an individual tends toward being more on the constipated side or loose stool/ diarrhea-type digestive upset. Other examples of what Facial Acupuncture can help include

Improved:

  • Mood
  • Sleep
  • Energy
  • Libido
  • Metabolism

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Coming Soon!

What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is used by many to erase fine wrinkles, diminish deep wrinkles and improve collagen. 

How Long Has it Been Around?

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has been around and used by Asian Women for thousands of years to help keep a youthful appearance!

Why Facial Rejuvenation?

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a wonderful alternative for many, like me who will never consider getting injections such as Botox into the face! Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is not only for wrinkles- it also helps with headaches, other skin issues such as Rosacea and Acne and is used for facial muscle issues like facial tics or spasms, i.e., Bell’s palsy whereby half of the face is paralyzed.

Facial Gua Sha for Skin

 

Facial tools, usually made from Jade for it’s cooling properties are used to smooth out wrinkles on the face and increase circulation. Usually gua sha is used with facial cups for facial cupping and most often both are used with facial acupuncture for what is known as Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture.

What is Gua Sha Used For?

Gua sha is used for Rosacea, Melasma, dark circles, sagging, puffiness and to smoothe out wrinkles.

  • Rosacea
  • Melasma
  • Wrinkles
  • Dark circles
  • Puffiness of skin
  • Sagging skin

How it Works:

Acupuncture points are stimulated with the gua sha tool on the face to increase blood circulation and decrease stagnation and inflammation. Gently massaging the face over acupuncture points with gua sha smoothes out wrinkles such as the furrow between the eyebrows and deep wrinkles of the forehead. Gua sha can be used along with facial cupping and facial rejuvenation or as a treatment alone.

Facial Cupping with Facial Acupuncture

What is Facial Cupping Used For?

Facial Cupping is used by itself or alongside facial acupuncture. Facial cupping can help with increased local circulation or the flow of qi and blood to the face. It can also aid in the absorption of facial serums. Cupping can reduce dark circles, diminish puffy areas of the face and help the skin to look more youthful again.

TMJ and Sinus pressure may also be relieved through Facial Cupping.

Does Facial Cupping Hurt?

No, facial cupping does not hurt nor irritate the skin. Facial cupping is suitable and can be effective to use on Acne and Rosacea. Cups used for facial cupping are much smaller and are left on for much less time than the cups used on other parts of the body.

Gua Sha is a common tool used along with cupping on the face and can help with Acne, dark circles, Melasma and Rosacea.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture for Acne

Acne! Not Just for Teenagers…

Unfortunately, acne is not limited to our junior high/ middle school years. For many women in their 40’s and 50’s, acne can strike without warning. This is due to hormonal fluctuations taking place during Perimenopause and Menopause. I know, I know, it’s not fair! We already survived puberty, right? Don’t worry. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can help clear that up.

Why Try Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture for Acne?

Licensed acupuncturists treating within Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) help to keep the energy within your body systems flowing in balance with the aim at clearing the skin and helping avoid further break-outs. Your acupuncturist may also make lifestyle recommendations to help empower you to look and feel your best. 

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture History…

Facial acupuncture has been used to help improve aging gracefully for thousands of years. This is certainly nothing new in the anti-aging world. It is not just a new fad. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture seems new to many. It is not. It has been widely used for quite some time with much success.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture for Rosacea

Facial Rejuvenation is used to treat many things besides wrinkles, including Rosacea.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is common and is seen as a tendency to flush with redness seen in the skin, usually the face. Blood vessels may become visible and if not treated over time this inflammation can lead to visibly bumpy skin over the cheeks and nose area with redness which may become permanent, especially over the nose.

An example of someone well-known who has Rosacea is former US President Bill Clinton with redness over the middle of his face.

What is Gua-Sha?

Gua sha is a tool used by licensed acupuncturists which is great for massaging the face of someone with Rosacea. Gua sha is smoothed over the face like a massage by the acupuncturist to help relax the stressed skin. Often gua sha tools are made with jade which is naturally cooling and soothing to the skin.

Rosacea Home Care:

 

  • Avoid the Sun/ Use SPF topical facial sunscreen
  • Avoid Spicy Foods (if a trigger)
  • Avoid becoming Over-heated

Yes! Acupuncture Stops Tension Headaches!

 

What is a Tension Headache?

Tension headaches are the most common of all headache types, usually felt as a constant, dull pain across the forehead or frontal/ forehead area. Tension headaches are not severe or worrisome, though they are annoying. 

Causes/ Triggers of Tension Headaches:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Jaw Clenching
  • Poor ergonomics
  • Overworking/ Infrequent meals (typical “Type-A”  American)

Why Do I Keep Getting Tension Headaches?

The reason tension headaches are so rampant in the modern world is due to the “rat race” of trying to get it all done. We are all guilty of it at some point in our lives. Clenching the jaw while under deadlines or stressful situations is common with tension headache sufferers. Another reason could be the incorrect work ergonomics at your desk. Acupuncture is great for all types of headaches, including TMJ headaches and for relieving stress and issues which are stress-induced.

What You Can Do:

  • Get to a Licensed Acupuncturist for headaches!
  • Start a daily Mindfulness Meditation Practice
  • Re-evaluate Desk Ergonomics 
  • Continue Self Care

Mindfulness meditation is a daily practice to help coax us out of staying constantly in this stressful “striving” mindset. If we stay in this “fight or flight” reactionary place too long, we burn the candle at both ends and become exhausted and suffer disease and dis-ease. This meditation type is aimed at helping to relieve suffering and dis-ease and is used successfully with many struggling with chronic pain and stress to get to a place of feeling more at ease, more often. Find further resources here.

Acupuncture is helpful for relieving headache pain and stress. Many patients come in monthly or seasonally after their main complaints resolve for a “tune-up” appointment to help keep their body in balance.

Self Care like regular meals, hydration and stretching at your desk can serve as muscle tension headache prevention.

If you are like me and can hyper-focus on what you are passionate about for hours without eating or drinking water, you may need to set an alarm in your phone until you get used to taking better care of yourself. Having a container for water handy may be serve as the visual cue to remind you while you work that you are not an android and must hydrate! If you do not, you will quickly remember just how human you are! Dehydration can lead to headaches and that sense of anxiousness, agitated mood or irritability-our body’s way of telling us to take a mini-break, sip and do a Yoga Pose or Two!

Acupuncture Treats Bell’s Palsy (Half Facial Paralysis) at Anoka Pain and Women’s Health

What Is Bell’s Palsy?

Bell’s Palsy occurs to half the face and is due to weakened facial muscles. Usually once first notices they cannot smile, drink without dribbling from one side of mouth or are unable to cry. It usually comes on suddenly, often one will just wake up one day to these symptoms without any warning ahead of time. 

Acupuncture treats Half-Sided Facial Paralysis (aka Bell’s Palsy) and facial tics.

Causes of Bell’s Palsy:

Damage to seventh Cranial Nerve can lead to Bell’s Palsy and for some reason viral infections often coincide with the onset.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the cause is seen as being due to the body falling under attack by external wind which strikes and is granted access to the interior of the body when the immunity is weakened. 

Who Gets Bell’s Palsy?

  • Pregnant Women
  • Adults in their 20’s
  • Diabetics
  • Elderly

Signs/ Symptoms of Bell’s Palsy:

  • Half-sided Facial Paralysis
  • Half-Sided Facial Droop
  • Eyelid or Mouth Droop on One side
    • Dribbling while Drinking 
    • Difficulty Smiling

 

Could this be a Stroke?

Of course, watch for signs/ symptoms of Stroke, such as inability to smile on one side, along with weakness in one hand (squeeze both hands to test for one weak side) or difficulty balancing (hold hand out in front at same level to test). A local police officer friend of mine coined it the “Frankenstein Test” for this reason. Of course, any new and sudden cognitive difficulty should be considered an emergency.

Points Used for Bell’s Palsy:

Licensed Acupuncturists needle Acupuncture points, Motor Points and Trigger Points in order to relieve half-face muscle paralysis and facial tics which may accompany Bell’s Palsy, especially if condition has become chronic.

When to Get Acupuncture for Bell’s Palsy:

Acupuncture works best when Bell’s Palsy patients get in as soon as possible after diagnosis of Bell’s Palsy. Acupuncture can also help those with symptoms of chronic Bell’s Palsy or facial tics which may come and go with stress.

Where Are Needles Placed for Bell’s Palsy?

Acupuncture points are located mostly on the face, though some are located distally on the arms and legs in order to treat the individual as he/ she presents with their overall constitution.

Will Acupuncture Needles Hurt?

Acupuncture needling in the facial area involves using thinner needles designed to treat the more delicate and sensitive areas such as the muscles of the face and for this reason there should be no pain. If you do feel pain, tell your licensed Acupuncturist so she/ he may readjust the needle. 

Acupuncture Treatment for Paralysis And Loss of Sensation Post-Stroke:

Acupuncture also is used for Stroke and is widely used in China for this reason, where patients are given acupuncture treatment as soon as they are stabilized following stroke. In China, acupuncture has been integrated into the hospital and is considered part of the patient’s medical treatment. Acupuncture is considered useful medicine by most of the world’s population. This is interesting to many Westerners who think of Acupuncture as an alternative medicine.
