If you’re curious about trying acupuncture but wary of the needles, watch this video. Julia of Aculife in La Jolla and I talk about the needles, how they’re different than what you might think, how she decides where to put them, and more. Having had lots of acupuncture, I also learned a few things I didn’t already know.
I admit that once I had an acupuncturist that was, let’s just say, aggressive. The person behind the needle does matter. Julia is very gentle, in fact, she massages the points a little bit after the needles are removed to move the chi around.
And, don’t forget that she offers facial acupuncture. What’s that, you ask? Julia inserts very, very tiny needles into your wrinkles to stimulate collagen. The wrinkles will disappear or improve, depending on how severe they are. More on this later.
