Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called “moxa” are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences. Moxa is usually made from the dried leafy material of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia argyi or A.vlugaris), but it can be made of other substances as well.

Gua Sha

A traditional Chinese Medical Treatment in which the skin is scraped to produce light bruising. It releases unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing, creating an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua sha treatment. This accounts for its effect on pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheeze, nausea and vomiting etc., and why Gua sha is effective in acute and chronic internal organ disorders.


Works for pain, tension, trigger points, muscle stiffness, tension, body detox and respiratory problems like coughing, asthma and lung weakness. Cupping therapy can also be used to recover after an illness and as prevention for stress, tension and even insomnia and headaches.

Essential Oils

When an essential oil is inhaled, the scent molecules enter the nasal cavity and stimulate the limbic system, a region in the brain that plays a role in emotion and behavior. The molecules also stimulate the nervous system, which helps to regulate heart rate, blood pressure, stress, and breathing. When used topically, the scent molecules are absorbed through the skin and inhaled. The practice of aromatherapy involves the use of highly concentrated, volatile plant oils to promote wellbeing.

Facial Rejuvenation:

As acupuncture needles puncture the skin of the face, they create wounds, which we call “positive micro-trauma.” When your body senses these wounds, it goes into repair mode; they stimulate the lymphatic and circular systems so that bright, vibrant, anti-aging cosmetic results occur in the skin and lift the facial structure, without the use of invasive anti-aging techniques. This treatment support facial imbalances as sagging, wrinkles, eye puffiness and dark circles, rosacea, acne. The treatment support overall health while leaving the face with enhance glow and lift.

At Ommmango, this comprehensive treatment includes acupuncture, a facial mask, facial roller, facial cupping and facial Gua Sha.


Many people are curious but unsure if acupuncture is right for them. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about acupuncture and a few of our favorite articles explaining the practice in more thorough detail…

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture consists of the stimulation of strategic points near the surface of the body often called “acupoints” through the gentle insertion of thin, disposable sterile needles.

Does Acupuncture hurt?

While many acupuncture patients are initially wary of the claim that acupuncture can be painful many discover that the experience is quite pleasurable and liberating.

What can I expect from a treatment?

Typically, an acupuncturist will begin by taking a complete health history, including numerous questions about your primary health concerns as well as more general health issues. An acupuncturist’s physical exam can include taking vital signs as well as detailed examination of the pulse and tongue, abdominal palpation and facial diagnosis.

When the acupuncturist begins a treatment, they will help you to relax prior to placing you in a comfortable position to insert the needles. After the needles are inserted, you will relax in the treatment room for 15 to 20 minutes. At the end of that duration, the acupuncturist will return to take out the needles.

After the treatment is over, the acupuncturist may prescribe Chinese herbal medicines if they would be helpful to you.

How many needles are inserted during treatment?

Ten to twenty needles may be inserted, although more or less is not uncommon.

How long will it take to resolve my health issues?

Most health problems take more than one treatment to resolve.

Expect to have at least four treatments before reassessment. Many problems may require ten or more treatments before significant benefits accrue.

Along the way though, you should see an overall improvement in your health as your main concern, overall mood and level of energy improves as well.

What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture or Acupuncture Facelift (Acu-Lift) is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging while simultaneously revitalizing the whole body. Acu-Lift is a holistic technique that will leave you looking younger and feeling energized.

Who would benefit from Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?

Anyone who is interested in restoring their skin to its youthful glow naturally may consider an Acu-Lift. The procedure is also suited for people concerned about deep set wrinkles, dark circles, drooping eye lids, fine lines, sagging, puffiness, large pores, dry skin and acne. Acu-Lift is geared towards total inner and outer health and beauty, visibly producing results on the face.

What is the course of treatment?

At the minimum, twelve treatments are recommended. Usually results are visible around the seventh treatment, but the full 12-week session is recommended for lasting results. After the full 12 treatments, a maintenance program including less frequent but continued Acu-Lift sessions, self-facial massage, herbs, nutritional supplements, diet and lifestyle counseling are suggested.

What are the effects?

An Acu-Lift Treatment can erase five to fifteen years of damage from the face by improving muscle tone, increasing collagen production, firming skin, and filling out wrinkles. The procedure also enhances metabolism to reduce puffiness, eases tension to improve fine lines and promotes overall improvement of complexion.

Is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture a new and trendy technique?

No, not necessarily. For thousands of years, the Chinese have known that beauty comes from the inside. Treating the underlying cause of why someone is aging is more efficient in masking the outward symptoms and allowing further decline and dysfunction to continue within the body than just treating it at the surface level.

Does it really make a difference?

Yes! The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 people who received facial acupuncture, 90% saw visible results after one treatment. Our experience has received similar results with patients reporting improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and overall complexion.

Why choose Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture over a surgical face-lift?

As an excellent alternative to cosmetic surgery, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is far less costly, safe, virtually painless and has no side effects or risk of disfigurement. While Acu-Lift is not a replacement for surgery if one is trying to reshape a nose or chin, it will take years off safely and naturally while improving overall well-being.

Are there any contradictions?

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is contraindicated for some pituitary disorders, heart disorders, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, individuals who have a pacemaker or who have a problem with bleeding or bruising, or who currently suffer from migraine headaches. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture should not be done during pregnancy, while one is experiencing a cold or flu, during an allergic attack or during an acute herpes outbreak.

Cancellation policy?

There is a 24 hour cancellation that can be made before you scheduled your appointment, or it is a full charge for late cancellation.

When scheduling your acupuncture treatment, please allow for additional time after the session to assimilate and reap the rewards of the practice
