Cosmetic Acupuncture Wisdom Launches At Harvey Nichols

Top Cosmetic Acupuncturist Athena Giralea launches her unique cosmetic face and body acupuncture treatments at Harvey Nichols, London on the 19th April 2022. Combining traditional Chinese acupuncture practices with innovative Western age supporting skincare solutions, Athena delivers a holistic, personalised approach that promotes skin regeneration and wellbeing for both the mind and body.

Athena Giralea says "What makes my approach different is my Western style combined with Traditional Chinese Medicine. I take the best of my background in Physiotherapy, Anatomy and Physiology training, research and clinical reasoning and use it to expand the traditional acupuncture map and needle directly into wrinkles, scars and pigmentation to influence both the health and texture of the skin. My treatments result in not only a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and a lifting, toning and plumping of the skin, but they also benefit the mind and improve the entire body's state of wellbeing."

Cosmetic acupuncture works to influence the health of the skin, promoting an overall improvement in the complexion and skin luminosity due to increased blood flow, which in turn can activate the body's own natural healing responses. This relaxing, restorative treatment promises holistic regeneration, inside and out, eliminating mental and physical exhaustion and effecting hormone release to heal the entire body and improve the quality of sleep.

Cosmetic Acupuncture Treatment (90 minutes) £295

Athena's signature treatment at Harvey Nichols, consists of in-depth consultation covering everything from a detailed medical history to lifestyle and health goals so she can curate a personalised treatment that will address the clients needs fully. The treatment starts with cleansing the skin to prepare for the face, neck and ears needling. 

Clients will then enjoy a targeted LED face light therapy followed by a sheet mask, whilst Athena needles the body and legs and massages the hands for a truly relaxing experience. The needles will then be removed, and skincare applied and massaged into the skin for up to 10 minutes to ensure the deepest penetration for the active ingredients, promoting healing and targeting any ageing concerns, lack of tone or puffiness.

Medical Microneedling (add-on) £75

Medical microneedling is a skin rejuvenating treatment to treat skin laxity. It works by creating pinpoint punctures in the dermis of the skin to trigger the skin's natural healing process and generate new collagen and elastin- the key building blocks of the skin that naturally deplete with age. Athena will offer this service as a supplementary service to the Cosmetic Acupuncture Treatment, as it an effective way to treat acne scars, sun damage, and pigmentation creating an even more personalised approach to her work.
