Modern Acupuncture, in SoHo, Offers ‘Glow’ Facials.
While the number one reason people seek acupuncture is for pain relief, this ancient Chinese practice has many other proven applications, such as boosting immunity and relieving stress. Another application that’s rapidly growing in popularity is the acupuncture facial to improve the skin’s tone and texture.
Joan Arata, owner of Modern Acupuncture in SoHo and New Jersey, calls their Glow facial acupuncture treatments “no-tox,” since they help reduce fine lines and wrinkles without the use of injected toxins. She says these treatments improve the skin’s appearance by hydrating it, increasing blood flow, and stimulating the production of collagen.
Because acupuncture can be used for both health and beauty needs, Modern Acupuncture gift cards are a popular purchase for Mother’s Day, Arata says. For a limited time, the clinic is also offering an introductory visit for $59, and a four-visit pack for $200.
While its treatments are founded on the principles of ancient Chinese medicine, Modern Acupuncture is focused on making acupuncture more accessible and affordable by being in retail locations, with flexible hours to accommodate many schedules, and affordable memberships and packages, she says.
