I claim it – I am a certified Zenbiosis Baby! My Saturday wouldn’t be complete without paying Zenbiosis a visit. Their clinic opened last November 2012 and it is my new favorite. For those who have been following this blog, you surely have read my post about the basic facial and chemical peeling services that Zenbiosis is offering. This time, I will be sharing the pictures and my thoughts about my latest experience – Acupuncture in Cagayan de Oro. Where? At Zenbiosis.
The Return of the “Comeback”
The break out, sad but yes, my week was full of let us just say food and sleepless nights. I have to commend the Zenbiosis team for their continuous effort of reviving my skin and I am so excited about our plans. Last Saturday, I availed of their basic facial just like I do that past few months. Dra. Grace Bandoy checked out my face, saw a few bumps, and later suggested that I do the “Acupuncture.” Wait, Dra. Grace said Acupuncture. Yes! My eyes grew big while Mitch, her new staff, was finishing the facial session.
Needles, oh, needles.
My acne was already chronic as she mentioned. She introduced me to Acupunture. She even told me the benefits. I had doubts, seriously, because of the thought that we have to insert needles. During the annual physical examination at the company that I am working. I would take a big sigh before the nurses can extract blood for me. Dra. Grace saw my hesitation and later convinced me that it should not be painful. I trust her and gave a big yes.
There were different things that came out from my mind before the acupunture session but for the improvement I have to be strong. 6 needles were initially inserted in different parts of my body, namely my hand, my elbow and legs. These points were to target the different imbalances that may have cause the chronic acne. At the first few minutes the points felt heavy and I could felt the short sensation of electricity going through the points like a ripple effect. Shortly after the sensation, I felt super relaxed and ready to sleep.
It’s all in the mind. Acupuncture isn’t that painful at all. (big smile)
So what is Acupuncture?
“Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles that have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin. According to Traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of qi through channels known as meridians.” source: Wikipedia
