Facial Acupuncture - Blending beauty and healing

Traditional Chinese Medicine has always recognised that beauty comes from the inside. At least as early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD - 1270AD) facial acupuncture practitioners were employed for the Empress, and the Emperor's concubines.

Far more than a facial, facial acupuncture involves the application of hair-thin needles into acupuncture points which have energetic connections to the face.

Only the very finest quality Japanese needles are used.

Please call the clinic to discuss how Facial Acupuncture can benefit you.

"I was introduced to the wonders of facial acupuncture with Alex Maas a few years ago. The treatment is incredibly relaxing but that belies the work that is going on beneath the skin. You can see the benefits... I would wholeheartedly recommend this treatment to anyone. Acupuncture is amazing!"
SH, Leics

"I originally discovered facial acupuncture in London and had experienced a couple of treatments without any marked effect. Then I heard about Alex Maas. After the course I could see a marked improvement and I generally felt a lot better. I find the transformation after each treatment very rewarding. For me it has been very helpful and has made me feel younger."
Chrissie, Hants

Stress Management

Stress is emerging as the greatest risk to business in the 21st Century. (Assoc. Insurance and Risk Managers)

In an increasingly competitive environment, effective stress management is absolutely essential.

  • 75% of illness is a direct result of stress (BMA, 2000)
  • Stress-related absence costs UK employers an estimated £3.7 billion p.a. (HSE: Tackling work-related stress)
  • On average, in the UK a total of 13 million days p.a. are lost due to stress (ibid)

Alex Maas can help with stress management in the workplace. Please contact the clinic to discuss.
