Aesthetic Acupuncture


About Us

Our Products


The Aesthetic Acupuncture available in Murray Hill, Manhattan, is an exclusive treatment developed by Dr. Travall.

The unique system integrates Chinese medicine with modern Western practices, to produce exceptional facial rejuvenation.

Dr. Travall teaches his system to acupuncturists around the world, and he was the first to demonstrate the benefit of combining celluma® red-light therapy with acupuncture.

Aesthetic acupuncture is a safe, natural, and holistic treatment that will deal with your skin concerns as well as identify any pathological underlying problems of premature aging. It combines different factors that act on the skin from the cellular level.


Acupuncture needles stimulate the skin’s cellular turnover, accelerating the process so that dry, damaged skin at the surface is quickly replaced with new, youthful skin. The needles also trigger the production of collagen and elastin, ensuring your new skin is stronger and tighter.

Dr. Travall inserts needles in specific locations that relax targeted muscles and in the connective tissue between your skin and muscles. Relaxing certain muscles diminishes deep wrinkles like frown lines that are caused by muscle contractions.

He also uses acupuncture points to activate weak muscles. This lifts the muscles, improving the skin’s underlying support and reducing sagging skin.

Red-light therapy

Dr. Travall uses Celluma® red-light therapy to restore youthful skin. After inserting acupuncture needles, he applies low-level light waves (red light).

The light waves reach cells in your skin and underlying tissues and boost cellular activity. As a result, the treatment stimulates blood circulation, new blood vessel growth, and collagen and elastin production.


Gentle microcurrents use a mild electrical pulse to stimulate cellular energy, accelerate cellular repair, and tone muscles beneath the skin. As microcurrents reach muscles, they mimic the effect of exercise and increase protein production.

Radio Frequency

Radio frequency devices generate heat. This heat penetrates deep into your skin’s layers. There, it stimulates new skin cell production (regeneration). The treatment also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. These proteins give skin cells more strength and flexibility. As a result, sagging skin regains its firm shape and feel.

Each modality above, on it’s own can give a great result, but Dr. Travall realized that layering each modality into one treatment, gave an synergistic result that was better than the one provided separately.

Pain Management
Sports Recovery

Acupuncture is a time-tested approach that can target the localized injury, as well as body-wide symptoms.

As a specialist in sports medicine and orthopedic acupuncture, Dr. Travall combines traditional acupuncture points with a Western approach based on manual muscle testing, and the use of motor points to treat pain, injuries, and enhance athletic performance.

Motor points are determined by the anatomy of your nervous system and are areas where the nerves connect and innervate each muscle.

When acupuncture needles are inserted, they activate biological responses in your body.

The treatments will effectively:

• Boosts circulation (accelerates healing)

• Releases endorphins (relieves pain)

• Relaxes muscles

• Restores nerve function

• Reduces inflammation

• Increases neurotransmitter levels
