Facial & Cosmetic Acupuncture in London
When it comes to looking and feeling well, your face says a lot about the state of your general health.
On those occasions when we’re not feeling 100 per cent, or we’re struggling with an illness, the face is the area that shows the strain the most, and so looking good has a lot to do with feeling good.
Any cosmetic process that deals only with the skin will always have limited and short-term benefits.
That’s why our first priority when it comes to our 5-phase state-of-the-art cosmetic acupuncture treatment is to start the process of improving your general wellbeing than it is about the cosmetic changes that come from removing wrinkles and lines.
Whilst facial acupuncture is wonderfully relaxing and can be the last word in treating yourself to a little self-indulgence, each phase of the process has a very clear and distinctive role to play in managing your health.
First Phase: Constitutional Acupuncture
Acupuncture is founded on the fundamental belief that our health is governed by how effectively and efficiently our internal energy system is working.
Because we’re more susceptible to illness and injury when that energy system is impaired or compromised, the first phase of cosmetic acupuncture gently places superfine needles in different parts of the body to reset and rebalance your energy network.
By doing this, we can address the underlying patterns of disharmony that are adversely contributing to your overall health – and which, left untreated, will continue affect the way you look and feel.
Second Phase: Facial Acupuncture
During the facial acupuncture phase specially designed needles are placed strategically into the skin of the face, ears and scalp depending on the facial symptoms
This process breathes new life into the skin, improving elasticity and enhancing the complexion.
Clinical research has shown the needles we use can significantly improve the appearance of acne scarring. Facial acupuncture has other advantages too: it hydrates the skin, encourages cellular regeneration and can help mitigate common unpleasant skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema.
Third Phase: LED light therapy (Celluma)
Whilst the needles are still in place, we move on to the third phase – Celluma. Celluma is the very latest technology available in the field of facial acupuncture and can significantly improve the results patients experience.
Phototherapy through LED energy technology is the application of specific wavelengths of light to obtain therapeutic benefits.
This form of light treatment is already widely used in conventional medicine and is known for its holistic healing properties as well as being proven to have anti-inflammatory benefits, too – meaning that not only can it significantly reduce wrinkles and improve skin tone, improve lymphatic drainage, increase collagen and elastin production, it can also ease joint and muscle pain and mitigate the discomfort of arthritis.
Fourth Phase: Skin Rejuvenation Anti-Ageing Face Mask & Jade Roller
After the LED light therapy phase is complete and the specialised needles have been removed, you can relax with a skin-rejuvenating anti-ageing face mask.
It’s a luxurious phase of the treatment that soothes, hydrates and moisturises the skin, allowing anti-ageing compounds to directly enter the facial pores and achieve deep anti-wrinkle and lifting benefits.
Using a Jade roller is not only a wonderfully relaxing experience, it also works to promote better circulation in the face, which in turn encourages a natural process of removing the toxins that inhibit toning and lifting.
Fifth Phase: Extra Special Finishing Touches
Cosmetic acupuncture is like your best day at the spa, but the final finishing touch is something extra-special to make you feel totally pampered. With our cosmetic acupuncture treatment, you’ll be able to choose one from three treatments:
Tension-busting facial Gua Sha: A truly relaxing massage technique that relieves tension, boosts circulation and is an antidote to puffiness
Collagen-promoting facial cupping: This is a gently pleasant technique that promotes the body’s natural production of collagen, which can promote better skin tone, reduce the visibility of scars, blemishes and wrinkles and add tone and texture to the jawline.
Detoxifying Tuina facial massage: A massage to end all massages, Tuina facial massage rids the skin of naturally occurring toxins that accelerate ageing whilst also relaxing muscular tension and sagging.

Your Health in Safe Hands
I went to see Archna after being highly recommended by my sister. I found Archna’s caring and lovely nature made me feel completely comfortable, and I was amazed with the results I got after a treatment with her. As a mum of two my back had taken a battering along with my energy, I’m writing this now feeling like a new woman! So I now join my sister in highly recommending her to everyone!
I couldn’t recommend Archna highly enough! I’ve been seeing her for over a year now – for various reasons – including digestive issues and addiction. Archna is the warmest, most caring practitioner I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. She makes you feel completely at ease in the treatment and with her many years of experience, always knows just what to do. She is an integral part to my recovery and I feel blessed to have her in my life.
“My experience at the Acupuncturists was wonderful, every time since I have started seeing Archna over two years ago. She is a fantastic practitioner, really knowledgeable and very focused on providing the best treatment possible. She is very professional and knows how to adjust each treatment so that when you leave you feel much better then when you arrived. She has helped me with stress, back pain, shoulder tension, digestive issues and common cold relief. I would highly recommend Archna to anyone looking to receive treatment.”
I have been consulting Archna for around 15 years. Her work never ceases to astonish me, and now I find there is no ailment that I would not ask her about. Most entrancing though, is her deep-sourced integrity and soulfulness. I have recommended her work to most of my friends and family and will continue to do so.

“Sitting in the office all day and working without much movement during the week, my neck and back have bothered me for months. I was recommended accupuncture with Archna and after initial skepticism of needles and acupuncture in general, I made an appointment with Archna. My experience was excellent and she has relieved my of my aches, whether in neck, head, back, hips etc. I am a regular with Archna now and very happy! Highly recommend her!”
I have been seeing Archna since 2017, for injuries, shoulder, neck and back pains and overall health and maintenance. She is very caring and professional toward my treatment, it was great we found her for my acupuncture needs in London. I would recommend Archna for anyone seeking acupuncture treatment. Thank you!
Archna Patel is a truly talented and professional acupuncturist. She has treated me successfully for physical issues (foot and back injuries), and also deeper emotional issues (stress, anxiety). The Acupuncturists clinic location near Green Park is super convenient and easy to find. I can’t recommend Archna highly enough and only wish I could give her more than 5 stars.
My daughter has been suffering from hay fever for a very long time and we’ve tried many different treatments which didn’t help but Archna has achieved amazing results with just few sessions only. She is very professional and trustworthy lady and I cannot thank her enough for everything she did for my daughter. Thank you
“I have really enjoyed my experience going to Archna I was hesitant at first having never tried accupuncture before but have found it to be a very effective compliment to other treatments. Archna has treated my for stress, lower back pain and allergies. I was surprised how effective acupuncture can be and what a wonderful practioner Archna is. The location is very convienent I can go right after work.”
“Archna is the most professional, knowledgeable and caring acupuncturist I have seen so far. I will get treated by no one else in the future. Archna not only has over 20 years of acupuncture experience, but in addition she is the only practitioner in her field who I have met, who takes a holistic and much more thorough approach for treating her patients. Archna is efficient, to the point, and extremely skilled. I have recommended Archna to several friends, who are all as happy as I am. I cannot recommend Archna enough and wish I had found her earlier! Thank you Archna!”
“I went to Archna initially with a very painful bursitis which couldn’t be treated with physiotherapy apart from steroid injections. She managed to treat my shoulder in a few sessions and I started to feel so much better. What I love about Archna is that she is very professional and she explains exactly what she is doing. She has an amazingly calm energy which helps you relax into the treatment and the session. I am a regular client now as she has helped me with many other issues from digestive issues to tension and even emotional imbalance. I look forward to my sessions as I leave feeling so relaxed and very light which are a result of the acupuncture but also Archna’s magical touch and energy.”
I’m really well looked after by Archna and feel my needs are being treated with care on a weekly basis. Would highly recommend to anyone!
Archna is an absolutely amazing and gifted acupuncturist. She has treated me for a variety of back, neck and skin conditions, and the results and healing effects on the body have been nothing short of extraordinary. I really like her energy, integrity and commitment to the work that she is doing and would strongly recommend her to anyone seeking a natural treatment to any physical or emotional issue.
“I have been seeing Archna for six months, after struggling with anxiety, stress and difficulties with conception. I was very nervous about approaching acupuncture, but Archna put me at ease within 2 minutes of meeting her. Her calm and reassuring manner helped me to relax, and she went out of her way to make sure that I was always comfortable and felt secure with the treatment options. My appointments with Archna are now little oases of quiet and calm; her treatments dropped my anxiety levels significantly, and I fell pregnant after just a month of seeing her! I truly believe this was a result of Archna’s healing and nurturing treatments, as well as her warm and caring presence. Despite reaching my goal of pregnancy, I am still seeing Archna to calm, soothe and invigorate me during this time, she is the best – thank you Archna.”
“Archna has treated me for menopausal symptoms, for shoulder pain and for stress. She is an excellent acupuncturist, highly professional and a warm and caring human being. Having been sceptical at the beginning, I realised quickly that Archna’s treatments result in real improvements and alleviation of symptoms. I have total confidence in Archna and recommend her unreservedly.”
I can’t recommend Archna highly enough. It’s such a personal experience receiving treatment from her, every time I go I always leave feeling more balanced, calm and centred. I’m also positive that seeing her for the past two years played a part in helping me get pregnant and definitely helped me during pregnancy with my sciatica. She has recently helped me so much with upper back and neck tension and with my hayfever, it pretty much disappears after I see her. She is also one of the warmest, kindest people I’ve ever met.
Archna is amazing. I’ve found her treatments incredibly effective and she is super knowledgeable and caring. She is also very much at the forefront of her field and has a wide variety of tools that she brings to her clients. I love working with her and have now come to her for several years. I have worked with other top acupuncturists in London and SF and consider her among the very best!
I am very grateful to Archna and the team for developing this method of treatment online. The day after a comprehensive video consultation, I received the Acu Pyramid pads and very clear information about where they would be applied. In the course of a second video consultation, Archna showed me exactly how and where to apply them. It was surprisingly easy, and as they don’t pierce the skin, it felt very safe.
As a result of the treatment, I no longer have a pain in my neck and shoulder that has been with me for two months and I have seen a huge improvement in stiffness in one of my joints which had also been problematic for many weeks.
I have no hesitation at all in recommending the treatment and would positively encourage anyone to try it.
