Everyone has specific needs to improve his or her lifestyle. For some, a better quality of life would mean feeling better emotionally. Others would prefer to minimize the effects of their health condition. Another may want to simply enhance his or her beauty. From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), all of those aspects can be enriched through a natural and holistic strategy that focuses on the mind, body, and spirit. We follow this module here at the Tao Institute of Modern Wellness, where the best of pharmacological medicine, functional medicine, and TCM are combined to treat individuals.
Our patients come to us for many health-related reasons, as well as cosmetic enhancement. Once they are evaluated and assessed, they are provided with a tailored program designed to improve their well-being as a whole. Their customized program, whether it be alternative treatment for ADHD in Philadelphia, or a strategic approach for pain management in South Jersey, may include a variety of practices. It may entail diet coaching, exercise, counseling, Intravenous Nutritional Therapy, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy, and acupuncture.
We include acupuncture in many of the programs because it helps to treat many conditions while enhancing beauty. Our Founder and Medical Director, Dr. Jingduan Yang, discusses the effects of acupuncture on beauty and health in a previous article in The Huffington Post titled “Acupuncture for Beauty: Facelift and Health Lift”. He explains that patients who experienced acupuncture as part of a tailored program enhanced the appearance of their face and body – and their friends and family were the first to notice.
Acupuncture, which is also used to boost fertility at our Main Line location and our other centers around the tristate region, helps balance the body’s channel systems through the stimulation of points. While it can help reduce pain and minimize depression, it also improves beauty by influencing the face-body connection. Each feature of the face corresponds with an organ system. For example, facial texture is connected to the lungs and large intestines system, while facial color is connected to the heart system.
The balance among these systems and connections is what helps to improve both beauty and health. Although a patient may come in to address one particular health concern, we structure the wellness approach to not only improve the condition, but the mind, body, and spirit all around. TRI looks at beauty not as structural, but a reflection of the spirit. Dr. Yang recommends a minimum of 30 acupuncture sessions along with other practices to feel and look better.
For a limited time, we are offering a summer special on our Acupuncture Facelift Program, which entails 12 sessions for just $100 – a discounted rate from our usual price of $125 for 12 sessions. To schedule a consultation, call our center closest to you today.
