Annee de Mamiel is one of the UK's leading authorities on acupuncture, specialising in facial techniques to create a healthy, vibrant appearance and an inner sense of well-being. Focused around the principles of Chinese medicine that life is entwined in a series of seasons and cycles (and the importance of treating ourselves to 'now' time), de Mamiel delivers treatments that not only address the aesthetic demands of stressed and ageing skin, but promote an inner sense of calmness and serenity that is reflected in the health and glow of the face. The philosophy behind Chinese medicine is that each season represents an element, which becomes more dominant in particular paths of our lives - achieving balance between these elements creates skin that is healthy and vibrant and an emotional sense of well-being. Having trained all over the world, Annee de Mamiel's acupuncture addresses the imbalances in our body by freeing energy to flow to the face, improving our appearance and general state of health and has earned her a cult like status among leading beauty and health media. Annee's hand-blended seasonal facial oils are 100% organic and designed to help support the needs of both the skin and the emotions, at specific times of year. In 2011 Annee will launch seasonal teas to help the body from the inside out - this is due to demand from her patients, who were given a tea after every acupuncture session.
