Are you curious about facial rejuvenation acupuncture and how it can benefit your skin and health? Join Ari Odamaki, nationally board certified acupuncturist, for an afternoon of relaxation with facial rejuvenation acupuncture and gua sha massage in a small group setting. Addressing the body's constitution and underlying causes, as well as the surface signs of aging appearing on the face, hair-thin needles are gently inserted in specific points on the face and body to improve circulation and stimulate the production of collagen. This can reduce wrinkles, age spots, and acne and improve facial muscle and skin tone. Facial gua sha massage with jade or rose quartz is incorporated to address certain areas of the face and neck prone to wrinkles, sagginess, puffiness and muscle tension.

Muscle Testing Workshop 

Presented by Tracie Yautz
Date: Sunday, February 16, 12:30-2:30pm
Location: Dragonfly Pilates Studio, 5518 Walnut Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15232
Cost: $75 ($60 early discount as well as Dragonfly member discount)

This fun and educational workshop will teach you the basic art of muscle testing.  By using a variety of methods, we explore how this technique is used to trace energy imbalances within the body.   

What is muscle testing:  Based on the concept of internal energy fundamental to traditional Chinese medicine, muscle testing is a noninvasive way of evaluating the body’s imbalances and assessing its needs. It involves testing the body’s responses when applying slight pressure to a large muscle, to provide information on energy blockages, the functioning of the organs, nutritional deficiencies, and food sensitivities, among other things. It can also be used to test the body’s responses to herbs and other remedies.
