Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System™
Mei Zen is a cosmetic acupuncture system that is based on Chinese medicine. It promotes the circulation of Qi and Blood in the face, which in turn, increases muscle tone, elasticity, collagen production and skin moisture. Cosmetic acupuncture is healthier, less expensive, and virtually risk free. There are none of the side effects of modern treatments. This system not only treats the face or neck, but balances the whole body making you feel younger from the inside, out.

The Results Were Amazing!
“Deciding to come to the Mankato Acupuncture Clinic for treatment gave me an option away from conventional medicine. When the doctor said they wanted to place pain medication in my neck with a live MRI and needle, I was not happy with that option. I asked what he thought of alternative medicine and told him I was contemplating acupuncture for my condition. He was okay with it but said if needed, the treatment plan was on file. I have not been back to a doctor or a chiropractor about my neck in 2 years!
The most impressive thing about the treatments is how fast they started to relieve the pain. I started with going about twice a week, and in about 4 months, we tapered appointments to once every 3 weeks. Now I see Stephanie on an as needed basis. I have been back a few times but the length between visits is more to relieve stress than for my original problem.
The seminar held at my place of work helped me to gather the information on being needled. The first appointment Stephanie asked if I was nervous and put in the first needle to help me relax. In about 15 seconds I felt much more relaxed and at ease.
I was not sure what to expect from acupuncture. I was not even sure it would help my condition, but I wanted to try. I’m so glad I did. I believe that this treatment option was the best for me. Now I go back when I feel stressed and I just love the way I feel after a treatment. Relaxed and energized!
The results were amazing! The doctor wanted to put a shot in my neck. My thought was one wrong move and I’m paralyzed. I wanted to try something less invasive to see if it would help. It helped not only for my condition, but in so many other ways and it has lasted almost 2 years and counting!
Each time I went to an appointment, it was a very personal experience. Stephanie got to know me and my family just by the questions she asked. Each return appointment she asked how my family was doing. And she also told me about some of her experiences as well. She made me feel very comfortable and at ease. She assessed me each appointment an that made each visit different and personal.
I have recommended Mankato Acupuncture to several people, including my own son and daughter. I’ve told many people about my experience and how acupuncture has helped me. I even asked Stephanie to recommend someone for my daughter because she lives in a different city. Stephanie was able to use her connections and help me out in that respect as well.”
