Following in the footsteps of traditional Chinese medicine, auricular acupuncture applies sterilized needles to specific points in the ear, treating those with anxiety, stress, and addiction.
What is auricular acupuncture?
Auricular acupuncture involves applying very tiny needles to identified points in the ear, triggering a stress reducing response that promotes a healthy mindset. We employ the NADA protocol to ensure the absolute safety and comfort of the patient, while also allowing for maximum treatment effectiveness.
How does auricular acupuncture work?
Auricular acupuncture can find its roots in traditional Chinese medicine but has also been used in Egyptian, Greek, and modern medicine. According to the traditional applications of the procedure, these single-use needles promote a balanced flow of chi throughout the body and mind, encouraging stress reduction and an improved mindset without the use of medication.
In modern medicine, auricular acupuncture is considered to be a technique similar to reflexology and affects pluripotent cells. You can think of pluripotent cells as data centers that contain information about the rest of the body. When they’re stimulated through acupuncture, they result in a parasympathetic response. In other words, stimulating specific parts of your ear results in a natural relaxation response.
What are the benefits of auricular acupuncture?
Auricular acupuncture focuses primarily on relieving stress – your mind and body’s worst enemy. This treatment can help you relax, increase overall calmness and, decrease symptoms that are directly caused by the stress response.
Many people also undergo acupuncture as a way to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms due to addiction, meaning that auricular acupuncture can serve as an excellent complement on the way to recovery.
Whether you are seeking non-medication support to handle emotional trauma or you just want to rewind and destress, auricular acupuncture is a proven and effective treatment option.
The NADA Protocol is one of the most well-reputed acupuncture application guidelines. It’s applied primarily as a non-verbal approach to recovering from addiction.
In this procedure, participants will sit quietly in a group for around 30 minutes while the effects of acupuncture have time to take effect. As a therapy technique, it is proven to be clinically effective and compatible cross-culturally, allowing all peoples to heal their minds without the use of prescription medication.

Rejuvenate and protect your skin through traditional Chinese medicine. Facial acupuncture treatments trigger your body’s natural healing response, resulting in increased collagen product, tighter skin, and improved relaxation.
What is facial acupuncture?
Facial acupuncture, just like auricular acupuncture, is a treatment rooted in traditional Chinese medicine. During the procedure, sterilized needles are gently placed onto specific pressure points on the face. These needles encourage your body’s healing response to activate, improving blood flow and collagen production.
The end result is visibly tighter and more youthful skin, improved complexion, and improved mindfulness and relaxation.
Does facial acupuncture actually work?
Acupuncture is a practice that’s been in use for thousands of years – and for good reason! Currently, the World Health Organization has recognized it as effective when carried out by licensed professionals.
Facial acupuncture works by having these microinjections stimulate your lymphatic and circulatory system, as well as the surrounding skin, muscles, and ligaments. The healing response that’s triggered works with these systems to increase collagen production and deliver more oxygen to your skin cells.
The end result is increased skin elasticity, reduced wrinkles, and a more even complexion. In short, facial acupuncture is an effective and safe way to encourage your body to highlight your body’s natural beauty.
At Milford Med Spa, we also include acupuncture to key body points to help balance meridians for optimal skin health and relaxation.
What does facial acupuncture have to do with stress?
Facial acupuncture helps deal with stress in two ways – treating both the cause and its consequences.
Just like in auricular acupuncture, facial acupuncture can help trigger a relaxation response, lowering your stress levels. Combining this with mindfulness exercises is an excellent technique to improve your mind’s overall health.
Secondly, as stress is a major contributor to the symptoms of aging, facial acupuncture is able to both help reduce further stress and treat visible signs of aging caused by it. In that sense, facial acupuncture is a treatment that has stood the test of time – and helps your skin do the same.
How many facial acupuncture sessions should I do?
We recommend starting off with 5 to 10 weekly sessions right at the beginning to receive the optimal levels of rejuvenation and relaxation.
After the initial jump start, one session every 3 months is enough to maintain your youthful appearance.

At Milford Med Spa, our bliss and beauty treatment involves a facial acupuncture and halotherapy session simultaneously. You can bring a warm, comfy blanket with you while you sit back in zero-gravity chairs and listen to calming meditation music. Stress relief doesn’t get any better!
The goal is to maximize the stress reduction potential of facial acupuncture, leaving your body to focus solely on healing and reinvigorating your skin.

What is halotherapy?
Halotherapy is also known as salt therapy. It involves breathing in salty air to improve your breathing. Our Moroccan Salt Room is perfect for increased airflow to the lungs, aiding in lowering stress levels and raising mindfulness opportunities.
This safe and natural therapy is ideal for releasing stress, improving breathing, and working on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

These one hour sessions are perfect for anyone who would like to experience energy healing at the cellular level in a budget conscious way.
Many have felt like they are being held in a gentle healing energy, stagnant energy clearing away, and/or see light and experience subtle sensations in their body.
Each session will begin with breathwork to release stress. Then we will go into a hypnotic cellular regeneration meditation and clear away toxins and help flush away unwanted stuck energy.
Each person will also receive a mini Reiki energy healing treatment. You can think of this as an energetic “tune-up”.
Because it’s in a group setting, there isn’t much time to individually assess any imbalances that you may be experiencing. However, if you know what’s going on, feel free to mention it to me at the start of the class so that I can concentrate your mini Reiki treatment in the respective areas.
Class size is limited to 4 participants.
