For Beauty

Do you notice the effects of stress, health issues, and time showing up on your face? Do you have the desire to look fresh again, but feel wary of the potential negative side effects of medical beauty treatments? It’s complicated to decide what to do. Injecting Botox (botulinum toxin) brings up health concerns. Surgery brings pain, unpredictability, and permanency.

Most people don’t realize there’s another option available: Acupuncture for Beauty. This highly effective approach to beauty can erase 5 to 15 years off your face, will not damage your body, and has only one significant “side effect”: better health!

We believe beauty is not just skin-deep, but an essential part of a happy and inspired life. Beauty is the outward expression of your inner light: the health and wellness of body, mind, and spirit, radiating outward through your face.

Acupuncture for Beauty combines time-tested techniques specifically designed to improve your skin and and underlying facial structures with full body acupuncture to enhance your vitality and well-being, all of which leads to a more beautiful, happy, and radiant you!

Shout Outs

When I ran into a friend I hadn’t seen in some time, I noticed her taking a long look at my face. Later that day, I received an email: “You look so beautiful. I hope you don’t mind my asking, but have you had work done?” No, I didn’t mind her asking – I am happy to tell as many possible as possible about the amazing results of Prajna’s facial rejuvenation acupuncture. My face feels vibrant and alive; I sense its connection to the rest of my body. I hadn’t realized before receiving this treatment that I had somehow assumed that my face and my body were separated. Of course they are not and now that I sense the connection, I can feel my vital energy – supported by Prajna’s skillful hands – nourishing my face. I have heard that seeing an acupuncturist once a month or so, regardless of any feelings of illness, is great preventative medicine. Since Prajna always takes a facial rejuvenation session as an opportunity to check in with my general health – and to treat for any symptoms – I know that I am getting the benefit of deep general care. I leave her office feeling rejuvenated in body and spirit!

Wow, I just finished the series of facial rejuvenation sessions at Energy Matters. I was prompted to do this after seeing my friends undergo really painful procedures to help them look younger. Not only were the sessions pain free, I looked forward to how rested I felt after each one. My friends have all noticed the difference. Some of the comments have been “you look fresh” or “what have you done, you look amazing”. Sound too good to be true? It’s for real. The sessions are incredible and Energy Matters rocks.

I definitely felt more relaxed & grounded after the AFR session. My face was more relaxed and more importantly, it was if I was “beginning to look like myself again” – which was good to feel. Also I’ve only had mild heart palpitations since the treatment, which is amazing. My skin seems to have improved after the AFR- less dry and less breakouts.

Thank you Prajna for the wonderful service and support that you have provided to me over more than a year.  I decided to explore Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture and then Facelift acupuncture.  I have seen significant improvement in the dark circles under my eyes and in general have a much healthier skin appearance and tone.  The benefits, however, go beyond that.  I appreciate the sensitive health assessment that precedes each session and the gentle encouragement and support in working on healthier habits.  I look forward to each treatment as a blissful escape from the pressures of a high stress job ~ it is a “spa day” for me as I slip into a deep rest time after the needles are comfortably positioned.  I look forward to continuing a series of treatments for a long period of time to maintain the benefits of your unique approach.

Puffiness in my face is way better than usual and even the texture of my skin seems better.

Really enjoying the products, too. Especially the eye serum. I can feel it tightening!

I really liked my treatment. I had a big pimple on the left side of my face, that you treated and it was pretty much gone the next morning. The swelling went down and the soreness was gone. My girlfriend came in to work the next day and asked what I was doing because my skin was glowing :-)!! I am looking forward to my next treatment.

Acupuncture for Beauty

The day after my last treatment, at least 3 people told me how radiant I look. Made me think that I should have a treatment every day!

Acupuncture for Beauty

I would definitely recommend the facial rejuvenation treatments to anyone that is wanting to roll back the clock on your body and mind.

The treatment was deeply nourishing and relaxing, more so than almost any other acupuncture I’ve had. I felt more qi in my face, gums, head and neck. And I notice my face looks fuller and more firm, more youthful, in a sense, although I see it as releasing my inner beauty.

I highly recommend Prajna (pronounced Proga) for facial and general acupuncture. She is grounded, kind and so deeply knowledgeable about Chinese medicine. She asks great questions and finds helpful patterns in the answers.

Her acupuncture “facelift” series is an enlivening experience repeated weekly over 8 to 12 weeks. I see and feel the difference every day and people still comment on how great my face looks. It was a wonderful balancing and rejuvenating whole-body tonic that improved my health and my outlook as well as my look.

Prajna sends lovely, caring follow-up emails to see how you’re feeling after a treatment. She’s good in so many ways and fits right in to the Energy Matters team.

We offer two styles
of Acupuncture for Beauty treatments:

Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation (AFR) Deluxe: everyone begins their journey with an initial consultation and an AFR Deluxe treatment. During the consultation, your practitioner will ask you about your beauty concerns and questions, and will also review your current and past health issues. Based on your goals and her findings, she will make recommendations about an appropriate course of treatment for you, and give you your first AFR Deluxe treatment.

Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation (AFR) ‘Lite’: “Just the needles, ma’am.” AFR Lite is a one-hour, needle-only treatment, without the herbal facial and therapeutic facial massage. It’s great if you’re on a budget, or simply don’t have the time for a longer treatment.

‘Facelift’ Acupuncture: at your initial appointment, or later, your practitioner may recommend a course of ‘Facelift’ Acupuncture. The experience of ‘Facelift’ acupuncture is, of course, nothing like a surgical facelift; in fact, it is very relaxing.  We use that term because this approach is deeply uplifting, making it appropriate when the main concerns are drooping or sagging.

Please note: if you are pregnant, or are in the midst of dealing with a significant health challenge, now may not not the time for you to explore AFB; regular acupuncture treatments may be more appropriate. Not sure? Contact us with your questions.


Acupuncture for Beauty (AFB) was originally developed for the Empresses of China thousands of years ago. Now, these techniques for enhancing beauty naturally are available to you!  Our AFB treatments are luxurious, pampering and deeply relaxing.
