Full Chinese Facial

The Full Chinese Facial includes a combination of acupuncture for the face, scalp and body, a complete herbal facial including jade rollers, aromatherapy, hot towels, and sound healing. The herbal preparations used are formulated to restore the acid/alkaline balance of the skin, tighten pores, and help maintain the suppleness and moisture levels of the skin.

  • Lung qi and yin is strengthened, treating the root cause of dry skin.
  • Using herbs in conjunction with acupuncture points amplifies the benefits of this renewal process.
  • Depending on needs, specific herbal formulas will be used to treat conditions such as rosacea and acne.
  • Aromatherapy and essential oils reinforce the penetration of the herbs into the skin.

Recommended to do monthly along with your series of facial acupuncture treatments.

Facial Soundscapes

Unlike some other sound healing methods, this unique modality is based upon the principles of Chinese medicine. It provides an alternative for treating areas of the face such as the neck, chin and jowls which patients may be sensitive to needling. These vibrating forks are applied gently to the face, and are relaxing and pleasantly tingly. A tuning fork treatment is non-invasive. You simply relax and allow the vibrational sound to play through your body as every cell pulsates, resonates, and interacts with the powerful vibrations, thus awakening the life energy of the cells. Each treatment is tailor-made for each person’s constitutional archetype. An entire topical herbal protocol accompanies the treatment.
Sound travels through water four times faster than any other medium down to the cellular level. This creates a perfect environment for the body to respond while stimulating collagen and elastin. Elastin is a protein in the connective tissue that is elastic and allows many tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting.

Each tuning fork is tuned to a natural harmonic series based on the orbital properties of the planet or heavenly body. These forks resonate in harmony with the celestial bodies and each communicates a distinct aspect of the Music of the Spheres. They are used to correct imbalances, uncover emotions, stimulate growth, development, and transformation and facilitate inner harmony and wholeness. The Acutonics system of sound healing is a distillation of the theories of Pythagoras, Johannes Kepler, and Swiss scientist Hans Cousto, given this particular form and further refined by Donna Carey, Ph. D., L. Ac. of the Acutonics Institute of Integral Medicine, LLC.

Benefits of Facial Soundscapes:

  • Reduce sagging and jowls
  • Strengthesn muscles and smoothes turkey waddles
  • Disperse congestion and puffy eyes
  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production
  • Soften wrinkles
  • Reduce scarring
  • As the tuning forks gently glide along the face, neck, and décolletage, you will enjoy the beautiful harmonic tones of the intervals they create.

Just like Constitutional facial renewal acupuncture, the results are cumulative – you need a series of treatments to get results. This treatment can be used alongside facial renewal acupuncture and our full Chinese facial. Ten to twenty treatments are recommended to see results, followed by maintenance treatments monthly or bi-monthly.
This amazing constitutional non-needle facial was created by world renowned acupuncture facial specialist, Mary Elizabeth Wakefield. Julie Shillabeer has spent a decade working with Mary Elizabeth Wakefield as her assistant in teaching all 5 levels of this course to other practitioners throughout North America.

Sound Healing

We use vibrations from precision-calibrated tuning forks that access and travel through the body’s meridian and chakra systems. It uses the same philosophies as acupuncture, but is non-invasive because there are no needles involved. Each fork is tuned to the orbital frequency of a specific celestial body. The vibrating forks are placed on acupuncture points and/or directly on the pain source to treat a wide variety of physical, emotional/psychological, and psycho-spiritual issues.

Like adjusting a piano, your body can be tuned to achieve optimal physical balance. Tapping two tuning forks will instantaneously alter your body’s biochemistry and bring your nervous system, muscle tone and organs into harmonic balance. In seconds … your body enters a deep state of relaxation. Feeling centered, your mind will be at peace.

Are there any contra-indications? 2018-04-12T22:20:00+00:00

People with pacemakers should not have sound healing, as it induces entrainment, which may counter-act the heart rate set by the pacemaker. Sound healing does not interfere with medications. However, as frequencies do induce healing of organs and tissue, those on medication should be monitored by their physician, as medication may need to be gradually reduced.

Is Vibration/Sound Therapy used in the Medical Field? 2018-04-12T22:20:07+00:00

Yes. Ultrasound has been used extensively in medicine for decades as a diagnostic tool that assists with therapeutic intervention. Ultrasound works by bouncing sound waves off of body parts to create images. It is used to exam organs in the body, checks for blood flow, and detects disease. Urologists use vibrational energy to break up stones in the urinary tract. Lasers, which are amplified light energy, are used frequently in surgery.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanners (M.R.I.) are used by Radiologists. They are powerful diagnostic tools that shift the electrons in the cells. They work by detecting radio frequency signals emitted by excited Hydrogen atoms using energy from an oscillating magnetic field applied at the appropriate resonant frequency.

​What effect do they have? 2018-04-12T22:20:14+00:00

Healing Tuning Forks produce a deeply relaxing effect in the body. As sound waves pass through the body, their rhythmic vibrations promote a release of tension at all levels of the body – rebalancing and realigning all aspects of the individual – physical, mental, emotional and energetic. A sound healing treatment helps calm and focus the mind; balance the central nervous system and enhance the body’s own self-healing processes.

How often should a person receive a sound healing session? 2018-04-12T22:20:19+00:00

The frequency and duration of sessions varies depending on the needs of the individual. In a physical, emotional, or spiritual crisis, some people may come in once or twice per week. Once the initial concerns are addressed, you may come once a month or every other month for a tune up or preventative care that helps keep the body in harmony. Sound healing sessions continue to shift the overall health, and work both quickly and deeply than some other modalities you may have tried in the past. Sessions are effective for both ongoing health issues as well as preventative or wellness care. Many people are drawn to the work for the clarity, relaxation, and heightened awareness they experience during and after a sound healing session.

Why can’t I come in initially for Sound healing and Facial Soundscapes? 2018-04-12T22:20:24+00:00

It is important to have an initial treatment before sound healing, so we can determine what your main root diagnosis is. We may then use sound with magnet therapy for your first session. As sound healing can be very intricate, the protocols take preparations prior to your follow-up sessions so that you can get the most benefit out of every session.
