The services Dr Rui will be providing include:

Acupuncture (60 minutes)

The consultation begins with a thorough review of the patient's overall health to provide a comprehensive picture of their underlying medical issues and the underlying causes of disease. Following that, a personalized treatment plan is created for the visitor.

Quit Smoking for Life (30 minutes)

Dr Rui uses a natural, painless method called auricular therapy, which involves modest electrical stimulations being sent to the outside of both ears. The therapy has an average success rate of 85%, reduces cravings, and relaxes the nervous system.

Holistic Facial Rejuvenation Program (60 minutes)

In order to nourish the skin, 24-karat gold needles are inserted into particular acupressure spots on the face and torso during this natural facelift process. By enhancing the volume and tone of face muscles, skin circulation, collagen, and the elastic fibre network, which activates fibroblastic cells and boosts hyaluronic acid synthesis, the specific needs will yield measurable results.

Anti-cellulite Treatment (60 minutes)

Anti-cellulite acupuncture offers outstanding results in the modulation of numerous body regions for problems including cellulite, sagging, localized fat deposits, and excessive weight. The body will feel refreshed and renewed after this therapy.


Full Epigenetic Test (45 minutes)

Learn more about the amounts of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and other substances through an epigenetic test. Deep genetic analysis will yield crucial information for modifying food and lifestyle to improve health.
