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.
Prior to receiving Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture, you must have a consultation to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for this treatment. Please bring your calendar to this visit so we may schedule all sessions at once. Plan on a 20-minute consultation.
Through research, clinical experience, experimentation and classwork, it has been determined that in order to receive the best results with the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System™, a series of 10 treatments are necessary. These are scheduled at the initial consultation for two treatments per week, for five weeks. Plan on a one-hour treatment.
Mankato Acupuncture Clinic accepts cash, check, Visa, Mastercard and Discover. Currently, this clinic accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota and Health Partners. You may also use your HSA or Flexible Spending accounts for acupuncture treatment.
Very Neat, Clean and Rrofessionally Run
“I have long-standing chronic neck and upper back pain, due to spasms, and acupuncture has helped me control this pain. My first appointment helped with understanding how Eastern and Western medicine differed. Needling was explained well, along with needle disposal. The clinic is very neat, clean and professionally run. I always feel welcomed and very comfortable.
Initially I thought I would go to the clinic, have a treatment, then maybe not want to continue, but I have found the treatments helpful enough that I continue to have acupuncture every 2-3 weeks, at my own expense. Even though my insurance doesn’t cover it, I find them helpful enough that I keep going. I would recommend the Mankato Acupuncture Clinic as another form of therapy that can be used to improve one’s overall states of health and pain control.”
