Fountain of YouthSince the dawn of civilization, men and women have searched for the proverbial Fountain of Youth. Now and again, the press unveils a new technology, cream, pill, potion, gadget or elixir as the fountain of youth or a rejuvenation miracle but all in all the fountain of youth has been elusive. Some of the telltale signs of aging are most apparent on the skin, particularly the skin on the face and neck. Rejuvenating, firming and uplifting the skin on the face and neck gives the appearance of youth. In today's modern times, this is accomplished largely by means of cosmetic surgery, drugs, hormones or application of cosmetic preparations. Facelifts are both costly and invasive, and come with their attendant risks. However, one can now experience the youthifying effects of a facelift without surgery, drugs, hormones or cosmetics. The ancient Chinese have always known how to rejuvenate the skin and the whole body system by working with nature instead of against it. Most people who are not familiar with the principles of acupuncture, generally regarded as a form of therapy, are not aware that it is also a technique of beautifying the physical body. Day-to-day living, including the exposure to the elements, pollution, devitalized food, insufficient sleep and stress contribute to fatigued skin. When the skin and its underlying tissues are fatigued, line and wrinkles appear prematurely and tend to make you look older than you are. Copyright2011UndergroundHealthReporter
To counteract these normal ravages of aging, nature has provided us with an intrinsic rejuvenation system that can be activated simply by cooperating and working with nature instead of against it. It is the ancient Chinese healing science of acupuncture, which can also be called the virtual "Fountain of Youth." This rejuvenation system has been in use for thousands of years, and acts as a veritable "tune-up" to a tired, abused and imbalanced system. Although the cosmetic uses of acupuncture have only recently received attention, by virtue of the increasing number of celebrities who have started using it as a way to eliminate wrinkles, bags, and sagging skin of the cheeks and jaws, acupuncture has actually been used in beauty applications for as long as science has been in existence.
The History of AcupunctureThe origins of acupuncture date back almost 6000 years. Historians report that during ancient wars, when stones and arrows were the only weapons, many soldiers wounded on the battlefield reported that symptoms of disease from which they suffered for years miraculously vanished. The physicians were puzzled because they could find no connection between the patients' war injuries and the ensuing recovery of health. After centuries of meticulous study and observation, it was found that certain illnesses could actually be cured by piercing or striking specific points on the surface of the body. The ancient Japanese and Chinese discovered that specific points on our body's outer skin and surface are directly connected to all the vital internal organs. For instance, pain suffered from injuries could be relieved by massaging certain points on the body surface. Through painstaking observation, the ancient Orientals devised a system of body points which respond to stimulation or sedation by transmitting an impulse to each vital organ inside the body. Initially, stimulation was accomplished by using fingers, then stones, arrows, fishbones, bamboo slips, and later needles made of gold, copper and steel. The Nei Ching (also called The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine) is regarded as the earliest written material on the subject of acupuncture. It is believed to have been written sometime between 2697-2596 B.C. The Nei Ching featured a comprehensive method of acupuncture therapy that became the foundation of all later developments of acupuncture. The word acupuncture was derived from the Latin words "acus" (meaning needle) and puncture (meaning puncturing). Although the science of acupuncture primarily utilizes the method of pricking the skin with needles, it also embraces the entire body of
knowledge that recognizes any manipulation of the acupuncture points to achieve balance of energy in the body. The study of acupuncture focuses primarily on achieving a balance of energy within the body. Energy circulates in the body through tiny pathways called meridians, which are invisible to the human eye. Through these minute pathways, every part and every cell of the body is provided with what the Chinese call chi (more commonly referred to as energy or the life force that is necessary to sustain life). When there is an equitable distribution of energy in the body, balance and optimum health exists. When there is an excess amount or an insufficient amount of energy in any part of the body, then disease or illness manifest themselves in that part of the body. Presently, there are 700 to 800 acupuncture points mentioned in modern acupuncture textbooks. They are located on the meridians. In the most simplistic sense, the basic philosophy of acupuncture is based on the stimulation or sedation of these points in order to balance the energy in the organs to which the points correspond. Of the 700-800 acupuncture points in the body, the 24 that are located on the face and neck will be the focal point of our discussion. Years of fatigue and abuse bring about the external manifestations of aging on the skin, the underlying cause of which is an imbalance of energy. Through the proper stimulation of the acupuncture points on the face and neck, the skin will repair and restore itself to the smooth, firm and glowing look of youth. There are an increasing number of doctors who are trained in cosmetic acupuncture, including nonsurgical acupuncture facelifts and facial rejuvenation techniques. However, not everyone has the finances or the inclination to undergo acupuncture treatments which involve the insertion of acupuncture needles into the skin.
Proceeding on the premise that the application of pressure on the acupuncture points (as opposed to the insertion of needles) produces a similar kind of stimulation and rejuvenation effect on the skin, the acupressure facelift was born! Since the philosophies of acupuncture and acupressure are the same, the only difference worth mentioning is that with acupressure, there are no needles. While an acupuncture facelift requires a skilled doctor with 3-10 years of training, the acupressure facelift can be easily learned and self-administered by anyone. Furthermore, the acupressure facelift costs nothing ... does not require a visit to a clinic ... and does not involve the physical and psychological trauma of the needles. The results derived from the acupressure facelift are similar to the results of acupuncture. However, this technique is presented not as a replacement for acupuncture done by a trained doctor, but merely as an alternative. If you have a little determination and are willing to exert a little effort, it is now possible for you to look younger -- and gradually remove wrinkles from your face, firm and tone your skin, restore your youthful glow and radiance, and rejuvenate your facial muscles, thereby making you look 10 to 20 years younger. If you are still young, you can use this acupressure technique to maintain your youthful appearance and prevent the onset of premature aging.
