with Mary Elizabeth Wakefield & Susun Weed
Learn how to treat your face using acupressure and acu-sound treatment points, using tuning forks, for beauty, health and longevity. Mary Elizabeth Wakefield, L. Ac., M. S., M. M., a licensed acupuncturist, and a professional classical musician, an expert in the field of facial acupuncture and Chinese medicine, will teach you useful exercises and self-treatments for toning sagging, droopy muscles, and for lessening lines and wrinkles.
Since the face is the most emotive part of the body, it acts as a mirror of its condition, reflecting its overall health and well-being. Any lines, wrinkles, and repetitive facial expressions reveal imbalances in the emotions, organs, and the meridians.
Ms. Wakefield will discuss the important principle of Chinese medicine which states that "The Shen (emotions/spirit) leads the Qi (the energy and movement of the facial muscles)".
