Additional info:

In Chinese medicine, the face and head are considered as the converging place of yang and the facial acupuncture is very unique, requesting more skillful techniques as it can easily cause bruise and hematoma because the face has more capillaries and the facial skin is much softer and thinner with more superficially located nerve endings. Through demonstration and supervised practice, this facial acupuncture lecture provides students with unique methods and techniques to prevent these risks. In addition to the lecture, students can sign up for the specialty clinic at AOMA to continue improving their needling methods.
