Kick the Butt!

By bschoon  //  Acupuncture  // 

Acupuncture is quickly becoming one of the most effective natural ways to stop smoking.  The focus of treatment is to help eleminate nicotine cravings, as well as help the body detoxify from years of inhaling toxins.

Acupuncture also helps the recipient deal with the stress, anxiety and any other uncomfortable emotions that my come up during the cessation process. The treatment helps to balance the energy within the body to optimize one’s health.

The treatment is 2x/week for the first month and “as needed” for support after that.

While acupuncture is not a magic cure, it is effective in making it easier to kick the habit and to remain smoke-free for good!

Cosmetic Acupuncture

By bschoon  //  Acupuncture  // 

FX Studio’s Beth Schoon talks about Cosmetic Acupuncture:


Hi I’m Beth Schoon. I’m the new acupuncturist at FX studios and I’m here to talk about Cosmetic Acupuncture.

Millions of dollars are spent every year on cosmetic procedures including creams and Botox and different types of surgeries.

Cosmetic Acupuncture offers a more natural approach to this, offering many healing benefits. It helps to stimulate collagen in the face. It helps to give you a more subtle relaxed look along with many health benefits.

Many of the points in the face are really good for digestion, for insomnia, for headaches so you get the health benefits along with the cosmetic benefits.

Cosmetic Acupuncture vs Botox

This offers a much more natural approach. We’re not injecting any kind of toxins, or creating any damage to the body or face with this system. As I said before, it has many other healing benefits, along with stimulating collagen and relaxing the nerves in the face.

Sessions? Results?

So a typical session lasts about an hour and a half. To expect to see good results you need 10-20 sessions depending on the age. The results can last up to 3-5 years.

How long has Cosmetic Acupuncture been around?

More than 3,00 years and it’s just now becoming very popular in this country. Especially with many stars in Hollywood.

Hollywood stars?!? Such as…

Sandra Bullock, Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker.

Is Cosmetic Acupuncture painful?

Normally no because the needles, as you can see on Crystal’s face are micro-thin. Sometimes when they go in, if it’s a painful point you’ll feel a little bit of pain on insertion but once they’re in you don’t feel anything.

Why needles in the feet?

When we do Cosmetic Acupuncture I’m putting so many needles in her face as you can see, that all the energy is being drawn up into the head so I put them in the feet to ground her. It just to make it a more relaxing treatment.

Regular vs Cosmetic Acupuncture

With regular Acupuncture you’re coming in for pain or some sort of health problem. We wouldn’t do Cosmetic Acupuncture on anyone with any health problems. This is strictly a cosmetic treatment. We’re focusing on relaxing the nerves in the face and building collagen as opposed specific health issues.

Can anyone do Cosmetic Acupuncture?

No this is definitely special training that I’ve done. I’ve studied with women in China and then a number of other teachers here.
