Foundations of Constitutional Facial Acupuncture Renewal™ Seminar - 

A 3-day entry level facial acupuncture course: Module 1 of a certification series in Advanced Constitutional Facial Acupuncture

Acupuncturists and advanced acupuncture students, do you wish to incorporate a nurturing, constitutionally based approach to facial renewal acupuncture into your practice? 

 Foundations of Constitutional Facial Acupuncture Renewal™ is a comprehensive seminar which provides the practitioner/advanced student with the basics for all the other facial acupuncture protocols created by Mary Elizabeth Wakefield, L.

Participants will be introduced to safe, painless, elegant and effective protocols for renewing the face as well as the body.

• Specific acupuncture points for face and body

• Jacques Lavier’s acu-muscle facial needling techniques

• Chinese physiognomy: Five Element hand and face reading

• Important operational information, general rules and supplies needed for facial acupuncture treatments

• The Instructor will demonstrate all techniques, and the participants will give and receive treatments.
