Acupuncture is one aspect of Chinese Medicine, a holistic approach that, includes nutrition, breathwork, movement, and massage. Chinese Medicine is a unique form of medicine as the connection among mind, body and spirit are ingrained in its principles and philosophy. When there is a misalignment in your body, it breeds dis-ease in its various manifestations. Just like anything in Nature, the holistic elements of Chinese Medicine can bring the body’s energy channels back into a state of homeostasis.

Acupuncture is applied by inserting thin, sterile, stainless steel needles into various energy points in the body. Metal needles are used as they are great conductors of electricity and heat.

Do acupuncture needles hurt? Not Really. Check out my blog on acupuncture needles.

Acupuncture needles are as thin as a strand of your hair. They are rounded at the tips, and the shaft is solid. They are not built to transfer fluids, hence not as large nor as sharp as syringes that doctors use. Acupuncture needles are tools to guide your body’s energy back into balance. It is a generally gentle and painless technique; but don’t worry, if you can’t get passed the needles, I’ll offer you several alternatives to get the energy in your channels moving.

By manipulating your acupuncture points with either needles, massage, cupping, essential oils or pressure, the energy (qi) of your body, initiating your body’s natural healing response.

How will I feel after my session?

Acupuncture causes the brain to release serotonin (our “feel good” mood- enhancer chemical) as well as natural endorphins. These chemicals relax your nervous system, allow more oxygen and blood flow into your organ systems and provide a sense of relaxation.

Your physical health and symptoms will improve with each session and your awareness (and love!) of self will grow as your commitment to your health continues. You will experience renewed energy throughout your days, significantly decreased stress, and you will have new and effective tools to confidently employ on your own if new symptoms arise.

Here are the words of a client: 

“Carine Camara is the absolute BEST — she is the most kind, caring, and effective acupuncturist I have EVER worked with! I have seen her for about 6 months or so and our sessions is one of my weekly highlights.  All of her efforts to address my ailments (from hormone imbalance, PCOS, scoliosis, muscle tension, stress/anxiety, iodine deficiency) have paid off in spades as all symptoms have drastically improved- and would not have without her. I don’t know where I’d be without her! Her healing work along is a reason to see her– and it’s just a bonus that you’ll get to know one of the kindest, most compassionate and healing people in the world. Couldn’t recommend her enough! :)”    – Lily

Facial Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has become an increasingly sought-after treatment due to highly effective, natural, and safe procedures to reduce the signs of aging, but the practice itself has actually been around for centuries.  Acupuncture can offer many benefits for those who want to revitalize the look and feel of their skin. It builds collagen, tones muscles, improves circulation, and stimulates blood flow with no risk of scars, infections, rashes, or toxic build-up of chemicals. 

Unlike traditional cosmetic surgery, Rejuvenation Acupuncture uses a holistic approach to change the energy flow throughout the entire body, allowing for better sleep, increased energy, and better digestion.  When the body is at a more rested, healthy state on the inside, the outside reflects this state with a healthier and more youthful appearance. 

With a series of Facial Rejuvenation treatments, we can achieve a multitude of results including:

  • Erase fine lines
  • Lift sagging eyelids 
  • Reduce dark under eye circles and bags
  • Firm jowls and reduce double chin
  • Eliminate puffiness 
  • Regulate hormonal imbalance 
  • Reduce the appearance of acne
  • Tighten pores 
  • Reduce scaring and age spots
  • Promote overall health and well being internally and externally


Microneedling effectively treats fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, improves skin texture and color, and dramatically enhances the effectiveness of skincare products. Visible results begin on the first day and continue for weeks afterward. As collagen levels continue to build up, your skin becomes more luminous and your complexion more even.

Combining this ancient medicine with modern technology enhances health and beauty from the inside out. Body acupuncture addresses the internal causes of aging and organ imbalances, which often appear on the face.  Relaxing, restorative acupuncture treatments can be combined with microneedling, drastically enhancing the effects.

Results: are sometimes apparent after one treatment and will improve over a series of 3-6 monthly treatments. Results will continue to progress for several months after your last treatment. Results can last up to 5 years!
