Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (FRA)

Beautiful young woman applying organic cosmetics to her skinFacial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (FRA) is a holistic program for natural facial rejuvenation, blending concepts from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and modern biomedicine.  Traditional acupoints tap into the body’s meridians and harness deeper healing energies, which nourish facial skin and musculature.  Innovative facial techniques stimulate collagen, plump up wrinkles, improve discolorations and naturally produce healthier skin and muscle tone.  Each treatment includes 10 minutes of Facial Massage, Aromatherapy and Facial Cupping with certified pure therapeutic grade (CPTG) essential oils and hydrosols.

What distinguishes the FRA method?

FRA is a trademarked protocol, by creator Virginia Doran, through her decades of international experience in massage, aromatherapy, acupuncture and herbal medicine.  She has the honor of being the first Westerner to teach acupuncture in Japan.  Her method is a structured program involving twelve FRA sessions, typically performed once or twice a week. FRA patients benefit from advanced techniques of facial rejuvenation, involving certain needling and bodywork techniques which stimulate the scalp and lift the face, and target wrinkles and blemishes.

What to expect


FRA stimulates local and holistic healing factors.  It is important to establish healthy circulation through the neck and up to the face.  With every session, specialized techniques plump fine lines, gradually diminish large wrinkles, improve complexion, naturally lift jowls, and firm the neck.

Results are individually based and depend on many factors such as actual needling performed, lifestyle and genetics.  Typically, skin texture looks visibly improved by the fifth visit; improvements begin holding by the seventh treatment.  The complete FRA course is twelve treatments.  Results have been described as taking 5-15 years off a person’s face, and may last 2-5 years.  Individual results may vary.  

Your results are best supported with healthy diet, exercise and relaxation practices.  It is advisable to relax pre- and post-session to maximize your results, healing and cellular regeneration.  Please refrain from caffeine and have a make-up free face and loosened hair.  It is important to be aware that bleeding or bruising can occur on the face, though it is typically minor and part of a normal healing response.  Make-up coverage can be used for that week; however, I encourage being make-up free as much as possible during the protocol. To allow the skin to breathe and be nourished, use natural, organic facial oils, creams and floral waters.  Before receiving acupuncture, please read INFORMED CONSENT.
