What to Expect
Cheri is a registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist (CMAAC). In 1997 she graduated from the University of Manitoba where she then worked twenty years for the Federal Government. Her passion for Traditional Chinese Medicine began in her early thirties while suffering from undiagnosed infertility. With changes in diet and exercise along with acupuncture and herbal medicine, Cheri and her husband were blessed with a beautiful baby girl. This life changing experience motivated her to study in Winnipeg at the Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture College of Manitoba to become an Acupuncturist.
In her late forties, Cheri began to see and feel the effects of aging, further motivating her to focus on the use of TCM and acupuncture to age better and optimize her overall well-being. This holistic approach to health and beauty appealed to Cheri so she took extra training in acupuncture for facial rejuvenation, facial cupping, facial gua sha and microneedling. Cheri has an Advance Certificate in Facial and Cosmetic Acupuncture with Michelle Gellis Lac Mac DiplAc.
Acupuncture is an effective ancient Chinese healing medicine that has been used for over 3000 years. Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that illness is caused by a disruption of Qi (life force energy) in the body. Inserting very thin, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points on the body restores the flow of Qi, corrects imbalances, and enhances the body’s ability to heal itself.
Facial Rejuvenation: Accumulation of tension in facial, jaw and scalp muscles are a main factor that leads to sagging, wrinkling and dullness that many wrongly attribute to aging. Specialized acupuncture releases the tension in facial tissues that suffer persistent forces of facial expressions, stress, and worry. It increases circulation and brings Qi and Blood to the face boosting oxygen and nutrients needed for healthy tissue. A series of 8 to 10 treatments is recommended. We will avoid facial areas treated with Botox within 3 weeks or fillers within 3 months.
