Urban Wellness Acupuncture Launches New Facial Rejuvenation Treatments - Healthy, Beautiful Skin with a Natural Approach Through Customized Techniques and Products



NEW YORK, New York (September 13, 2013) - Urban Wellness Acupuncture has just opened its ‘Unique Boutique’ professional office on the Upper East Side, at 55 East 73rd Street, Suite GR, New York, NY, 10021 (between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue) dedicated to providing integrative individual wellness by providing professional care through Traditional Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture. Urban Wellness Acupuncture’s approach is “Ancient Practice with Modern Science” - we believe in providing optimal care and results for our patients using the best of both Eastern Wisdom and Western Technology.

The Dynamic Duo, Carla Gervasio, L.Ac., MSTOM and Rae Ritke, L.Ac., MSAC both had prior careers focused on healthy beauty - Rae’s extensive experience in television and film and Carla’s senior executive roles in skincare development. Both acupuncturists developed a keen and skilled eye for aesthetics with a natural approach, which is the basis for Urban Wellness’ focus on Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and Anti-aging Treatments. Along with each facial acupuncture treatment, the patient receives their own fresh mask application which is a “proprietary blend” designed for their particular skin care needs - which makes each patient “feel very special”.

Carla and Rae are carefully trained and licensed in cosmetic acupuncture for Facial Rejuvenation - a natural and non-surgical way to lift and tone skin to enhance overall facial appearance. “Beauty is more than Skin Deep” - facial acupuncture treatments include body points as well, which harmonizes the entire body’s system. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a treatment based on Oriental Medicine which involves the insertion of extremely fine needles into specific parts of the face and body to encourage the movement of energy and address any other issues that are occurring in the body which may accelerate the aging process. Facial Rejuvenation boosts the body’s natural ability to regenerate and enhance the skin’s optimal condition. There is no ‘down time’ or recovery time from facial acupuncture, most experience a rosy glow after the first treatment. “Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture may erase as much as five to fifteen years from the face, with results apparent after just a few treatments” based on the internationally recognized expert and pioneer in this field, Virginia Doran, MS, LAc., LMT (The European Journal of Oriental Medicine Vol 5, No 5, 2007). Best results are seen with a minimum of 6 treatments and up to 12 – usually around the 7th treatment one (and others!) observes a noticeable difference. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture increases blood circulation to the face, increases collagen production, firms and tones skin, improves hormonal balance and acne, stress reduction, which is clearly reflected in the face. In addition, we usually recommend nutritional modifications and herbal remedies to compliment the facial rejuvenation process.

Sandra Ballentine wrote an excellent article for The New York Times Magazine about Norma Kamli’s experience with facial acupuncture and the benefits for overall well-being. Kamali says, “People kept complimenting me.” After a year of weekly sessions with the doctor, she says the results have been astonishing. “I feel and think I look a lot fresher,” she says. “But it’s more than skin-deep. He addresses your emotional health, your immune system and everything to do with wellness.” To read the full article, visit

In addition, Carla is trained and certified Diplomate in Chinese Herbal Medicine in the treatment of Dermatological Conditions. She studied with Dr. Mazin Al-Khafagi, a global authority in Chinese Medicine and Dermatology and founder of Avicenna Clinic in the UK.
