RELEASE YOUR BODIES INTERNAL HEALER
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture is an ancient form of healing that sees disease as a disorder in the body. Treatment is directed toward restoring order by harmonizing the body.
Acupuncture takes the entire person into account and treatment is centred on the person, not the disease. Every person is seen as a unique being and treatment is selected on a personalized level.
Acupuncture promotes natural healing by correcting energy imbalances in the body and restoring a healthy balance of mind, body and renewed vitality. This safe, relaxing, non invasive ancient medicine can offer relief from a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions. Treatment includes one or a combination of the following: fine needles, auricular therapy, the use of heat, electro stimulation, cupping, gua sha and tui na massage depending on the needs of the client. Nutrition and lifestyle are often discussed to increase the efficacy of treatment.

Her education in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine has only deepened and enriched this understanding which has inadvertently led to a desire to change the accepted paradigm toward aging. Ramona specializes in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture because it is a process that can link inner vitality with outer physical enhancement.

Elizabeth is a Registered Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist who has worked at Wellness Within since 2013. She graduated from Grant MacEwan University in 2011 from their 2200hr Massage Therapy program and 3 year Acupuncture program in 2014.
Elizabeth’s journey began when she was working part time as a receptionist at a clinic that offered acupuncture. When she was seven years old, she began to experience tension and migraine headaches, but she knew of no other way to find relief than taking pain medication. After experiencing a ruptured ovarian cyst, the acupuncturist at the clinic educated Elizabeth on the benefits of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as an alternative to medications to help treat headaches and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Elizabeth decided to give it a try, and the follow up ultrasound 3 months later showed the ovarian cysts almost completely cleared up. She also found that her headaches had decreased significantly in duration, frequency and intensity. This sparked her interest in the modality and the rest is history.
Elizabeth looks forward to working with each and every one of her clients on their journey towards health through massage therapy and acupuncture.
OUR MODERN TIMES REQUIRES A NEW DEFINITION OF AGING AND SKINCARE
Beautiful skin cannot be separated from the vitality of the body/mind dynamic. The face acts as a mirror to our internal health and renewal is a process that originates from a state of inner harmony aligned with an awareness of one's unfoldment towards a higher vision of the self. This inner light reflects to the surface of our being and possesses no age limit as long as we cultivate self care.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is an organic process of caring for your skin that integrates the whole person by treating the body as well as the face while recognizing the mind/spirit connection as a crucial component of this holistic healing.
Through the placement of super fine needles at specific points on the face, blood and qi, the body's nourishing energies are stimulated to flow to the area, transporting an abundance of nutrients to aid in cellular repair and renewal. This can flush the skin with a healthy glow, improving facial colour and appearance of skin. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture activates the body's local healing response, which in turn stimulates fibroblasts and may promote increased production of collagen and elastin, the skin components that give strength and elasticity to the skin. This unique system uses a method that can affect specific muscles of the face by stimulating the muscle fibers to reorganize themselves, resulting in a lifting and toning of the area.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a safe and relaxing way to maintain the vitality of your face and body. By addressing internal imbalances at the constitutional level, the body is treated along with the face, promoting whole health and longevity. Poor digestion, fatigue, stress, sleep issues, hormonal imbalances are some of the key factors that can negatively impact one's facial appearance and can be addressed
effectively with constitutional facial acupuncture.
During a Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatment, one of the most common benefits is stress reduction. As the body and mind relax, endorphins are released producing a general state of well being. The face will look more rested and pleasant while the mind feels more grounded and at peace after even one treatment.
A Facial Rejuvenation treatment with Ramona includes the use of high quality organic nourishing botanicals, aromatherapy, facial massage, jade rollers and tuning forks. Ramona invites you along on a transformative journey of both body and spirit.
