Joanna’s Holistic Facials
As a qualified aesthetician Joanna often treats not only facial problems such as acne, rosacea and oily or dehydrated mature skin etc, but also she uses her skill as an acupuncturist to address the underlying condition: the core of the skin problems.
Her holistic approach addresses the whole person, treating not only the symptoms but also the cause of the problem.
According to Chinese Medicine the pathways, through which the life force energy flows, are called Meridians and the energy is called ki. In her experience she has found energy (ki) imbalances of liver, lungs or stomach Meridians are often associated with skin problems.
The obstruction of ki flow in Meridians can unbalance the body systems and internal organ functions and can manifest in facial aging, sagging skin, wrinkling (deficiency condition) or acne (excess condition).
Joanna’s futuristic, natural approach to enhancing body, mind and soul was born out of the desire to develop a combination of techniques that can be integrated to enhance and boost the life force energy (ki) flow throughout the body and specifically in the face.
Joanna provides step-by-step techniques, which can be used to balance the flow of ki and blood in the face. Her energy balancing methods aim to unlock the power of the body’s natural healing forces, allowing the body, mind and soul to balance and heal.
She often prescribes Chinese herbal formulations to support the treatments and advises on diet and lifestyle practices.
