Did you know that we offer cosmetic acupuncture?

Here at CGICM not only do we treat women’s health concerns, we also treat a wide variety of other conditions as well, including skin and cosmetic concerns as well as age-related symptom prevention.  Traditional Chinese Cosmetic Treatment is a safe, natural, and effective way of treating a wide variety of skin related concerns such as:

  • WrinklesBigStock Cosmetic
  • Saggy skin
  • Drooping eyelids
  • Age spots
  • Preventing signs of aging
  • Acne
  • Tired skin
  • Melasma
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Please ask us about your condition!


At CGICM each treatment includes:

  • Herb Steam: using individualized formulas for specific conditions, our steams are suitable for all skin types. The decoctions are applied using an ultrasonic nebulizer which turns the liquid formulas into steam via ultrasonic acoustic energy oscillations.  This process makes it easier for the skin to absorb the beneficial herbal properties in the steam.
  • Facelift Mask: NU Skin uses an AgeLOC body shaping gel that helps minimize and smooth the face for a slimmer and more contoured appearance. Alternately, we use a natural gel containing egg white, vitamin C, vitamin E, and honey to increase circulation, decrease inflammation, and even skin tone.
  • Jade Stone Massage: in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) jade has been used for centuries as a massage tool that increases circulation and decreases inflammation. In Feng Shui jade is often used to create a feeling of balance and harmony.  This is a relaxing highlight to any cosmetic treatment.
  • Cosmetic Acupuncture: based on TCM principles, very thin, disposable needles are inserted into acupuncture points on the face. This superficial insertion of needles increases local circulation to stimulate collagen production.  This effectively fills out lines and increases firmness for a healthy and glowing complexion.  Cosmetic Acupuncture is a safe and effective non-surgical treatment that reduces the signs of aging, and along with a TCM diagnosis acupuncture can help treat the root cause of conditions such as melasma and acne so effective treatments are given.
  • Finishing Cream: as with the herbal steam, CGICM makes creams based on TCM principles and modifies them for specific cosmetic conditions. No chemical preservatives are used, so you are left with a healthy, natural glow.

If you are looking for a safe, natural, and effective way to moderate aging, scarring, or discolouration, or even if you are looking for a treatment to prevent the signs of aging, TCM Cosmetic Treatments could be just the thing you have been looking for.  Email, call, or drop in with questions or if you would like more information!
