I’ve been hearing stuff about acupuncture but I just got introduced to Facial Acupuncture (also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture) for the first time. Before I’ll proceed with sharing my experience and whatnot, here are some of the benefits that you are claimed to get from it.
– Helps contour your face
– It produces nutrients like collagen and elastin to prevent skin ageing
– It minimizes deep wrinkles
– Helps reduce acne problems
– Helps your face look more fresh and young
– It brightens up your eye circles since it also lifts saggy & droopy eyelids
– It decreases age spots
– It decreases fatty tissue to prevent double chin
– It’s a very safe procedure for facial enhancement
So hubby and I were invited to visit Thai Raksa Healing Spa and at first I thought we were only gonna get a full body massage. Hubby is not really into massage, he was saying that we might get the acupuncture but I was hoping for a massage lol. So when we finally got there it was clear that we were going to try the facial acupuncture.
Chris was the first one to get placed in the hot seat hehehe. He seemed so relaxed and didn’t look like he was intimidated by the needles. He was even talkative during the procedure. After Ma’am Joyce (the owner of Thai Raksa Healing Spa) was done putting the needles over his face, we waited for about 30 to 40 minutes before she took them out.
Then it was my turn! I admit I was pretty tense during the procedure and I had to block it in my head so I’d never feel the intensity when the needles were getting poked in my skin. I still felt the needles getting pushed in though. I would feel a quick shock of pain but it wasn’t anything you can’t handle.
After our facial / cosmetic acupuncture, Chris and I shared each other’s thoughts about our first session. I felt tightness on the surface of my face afterwards and so did he. I also felt a little light headed but he said he felt so relaxed after the needles were pulled out. We actually visited again after our first session but I didn’t try it again, only Chris.
Thai Raksa Healing Spa is located at 76-A Ecowest Drive, Genesis 88 Bldg. Ecoland, Davao City. It’s beside SM Ecoland.
Thank you so much Miss Pal Raine, Ma’am Joyce and Sir Warren for giving us the opportunity to visit the Spa.
