Have you ever seen a woman who had amazing skin? You know, skin with no blemishes, wrinkles or other imperfections. Skin that’s clear, soft, and radiant?
When you see these women, do you sigh, and WISH you could have that skin, too? I sure do.
Well, wish no more. I recently had the pleasure of photographing licensed acupuncturist, Rachael Webb, of Integrating Beauty in San Francisco.
Rachael practices general and preventative medicine, with a special focus in skin care & women’s health. By incorporating acupuncture and Chinese medicine into modern beauty & skin care treatments, the root cause of the issue can be addressed, helping to return the skin to its natural vitality.
According to Rachael, many skin issues are hormone related, and Chinese medicine is very effective in regulating the female cycle and bringing the endocrine system back into balance. Rachael also addresses pain management, digestive disorders, allergies, insomnia, hormonal balance, fertility, stress management, emotional well-being, and immune support.
Rachael incorporates a handful of techniques into her pampering treatments. Not only were they fun to photograph, but honestly left me wishing that I was the one getting the treatment. Some techniques she uses include: the rolling of the skin with a Jade Roller to help increase blood and lymph flow, the application of hair-thin acupuncture needles to both the face and body, a technique called cupping which acts to stimulate blood flow and clear toxins, and the customization of your own unique essential oil blend.
If Rachael’s own skin is any indicator of her passion and skill, RUN don’t walk to her to make an appointment. Your face will thank you!
