It's been a long time coming and I'm thrilled to announce that starting in 2020 I will be offering a 3 Day Workshop for licensed Acupuncturists to learn my method of integrative Cosmetic Acupuncture! The first course will be held at my alma mater The Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, CA the last weekend of January 2020. Details are still being worked out but the course is currently pending for 23 CA CEUs and will also be applied for NCCAOM units as well.
I'm looking forward to offering this course as I think it really bridges together what other courses are missing and takes on an approach that helps students understand the WHY of cosmetic acupuncture from a physiological perspective as well as a spiritual perspective. Over a decade of practicing this art has led me to some unique understandings of how and why it works and how to work with patients to get the best results possible.

The prospect of cutting back and closing the permanent makeup aspect of my business has been on my mind and intention for some time now. It's been a really fun and rewarding experience helping people find more confidence in their appearance through these procedures and I appreciate all of your continued business and referrals. I've waited on closing this leg of my business because I didn't want to leave anyone hanging without someone to go to for yearly touchups who I trusted and provided quality work. Well, I've finally found this person! Maria at B'Fab Studios in San Jose is an incredibly talented and amazing artist who has agreed to take on my permanent makeup practice.
Maria provides all of the services that I have and more, she does microblading, powder ombre brows, tattoo removal, lips and eyeliner. She's incredibly talented and trained by the same instructor as I was. She has graciously offered to see anyone who was a previous client of mine at her touch up rate of $275 (unless re-drawing is required). I realize San Jose is a bit of a stretch for some of you, but her work is so amazing I think it will be worth the trip.
See her website, services and book online HERE
If you're ready for your yearly touch up now and would like to come see me before I am no longer offering permanent makeup you are welcome to of course! You can now book touch ups online simply choose the permanent makeup category and select ombre or microblading for your touch up. If you think you MIGHT want ombre but aren't sure please book that service just in case as it takes a little longer to complete.
