It encompasses various aspects such as diet, exercise, meditation, and lifestyle choices that are believed to help maintain balance and harmony within the body and mind.

Debrah has healing hands and a mind body spirit connection that she’s able to share when she’s working on you! I highly recommend her for stress reduction, help in healing injuries and overall body health maintenance. Debrah has assisted me successfully in all three areas.

Embarking on a journey of holistic wellness took on an entirely new meaning when I discovered the extraordinary mobile acupuncture services of Debrah Santi on the picturesque island of Maui.  Debrah brought the ancient art of acupuncture to life, creating a healing oasis that transcends the boundaries of a traditional clinic.

Debrah is a gem… she took me from being barely functional to energized and physically able to handle more than I ever have. Regular visits with her have completely adjusted my body and chi into a much more operative state, with significantly less pain and discomfort. Couldn’t handle all I do without her. Highly recommend!

Holistic Healing Practices

Traditional Chinese acupuncture involves inserting ultrafine, sterile steel needles into the skin at certain points on the body to allow energy flow along the body’s meridians. Other types of acupuncture may use heat, pressure or a mild electrical current to stimulate energy flow along the meridians. Acupuncture has a long history dating back thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine. It is based on the concept of balancing the flow of energy, known as Qi, through meridians in the body to promote health and well-being. Some potential benefits and positive outcomes of acupuncture include:

1. Pain management: Acupuncture is commonly used to alleviate various types of pain, including chronic pain, musculoskeletal pain, and migraines.

2. Stress reduction: Acupuncture may help reduce stress, anxiety, and promote relaxation by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.

3. Improved circulation: Acupuncture can help improve blood circulation and promote the body’s natural healing processes.

4. Enhanced immune function: Acupuncture is believed to support the immune system and help the body defend against illnesses and infections.

5. Digestive health: Acupuncture may help with digestive issues such as bloating, indigestion, and irritable bowel syndrome by regulating gastrointestinal function.

6. Mental health support: Acupuncture is sometimes used as a complementary therapy for mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

Overall, acupuncture is considered a safe and effective treatment option for a variety of health conditions. Many people report positive outcomes such as reduced pain, improved quality of life, and enhanced overall well-being after receiving acupuncture treatments.

 History of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Cosmetic Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has an impressive and rich history in the East, dating back to the early Western Zhou period of (1121-770 BC), it was a luxury performed on the  Empress and royal family. According to Chinese medicine, it improves circulation and stimulates the body’s natural anti-aging powers.

What it is/ How it works

At Debrah Santi Maui Acupuncture we want you to know that, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is an effective non-surgical, painless way to reduce the signs of aging, regenerate the skin cells, and stimulate  the production of collagen. Hair-thin sterile single-use disposable needles are gently inserted into specific points on the face and body to facilitate the movement of blood and increase local circulation around the face. Through a truly holistic approach, it works by giving cosmetic benefits and simultaneously generating vitality and radiance from the inside out – this is so much more than just another cosmetic procedure.


  • Eliminates fine lines and soften deeper wrinkles
  • Improves collagen production
  • Improves skin metabolism and nourishes and rehydrates skin – giving you a healthy glow and radiant complexion.
  • Increases local blood & lymph circulation, and oxygenates the skin – bringing more color and vitality to dull, tired looking skin.
  • Reduces double chin, firms sagging jowls
  • Decreases inflammation that causes bags or puffiness under eyes, and lifts drooping
  • Minimizes dark circles and brightens eyes
  • Tightens pores
  • Evens skin tone and color
  • Improves acne and hormonal imbalances in the skin
  • Reduces stress and promotes total health and an improved sense  of well-being
  • Constitutional Patterns: Because root imbalances are addressed, many other conditions can receive benefit from these treatments, including: digestive issues, low energy, stress, anxiety, depression, sleep issues, pain and neurological conditions (especially in head and face), GYN and hormonal imbalances, respiratory conditions, allergies, and more

The Treatment Protocol

The treatment involves a combination of acupuncture (face, scalp and body), facial Tui Na, and a complete herbal facial regimen. Using formulas exclusively developed over the past twenty-five years by a compounding pharmacist/naturopath.

To achieve the maximum benefits of facial rejuvenation acupuncture:

  • Treatment protocol is 2 times a week for 5 weeks
  • The measure of improvement depends on the individual
  • Factors such as diet, exercise and lifestyle also contribute to the effectiveness of the treatments
  • Noticeable results are usually achieved after 6 to 8 sessions
  • A session takes about 60 minutes
  • I will also recommend diet and lifestyle changes in order to solidify the effectiveness of the treatments. 

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a safe, natural, less invasive and cost effective alternative to botox and surgical procedures.

4. Detoxification: Some proponents of fire cupping suggest that it can help remove toxins from the body and promote overall detoxification.

Tui Na works by applying pressure to acupoints, meridians and groups of muscles or nerves to remove blockages.

It can be used in combination with your acupuncture treatment or as an independent treatment modality to facilitate your healing.  Tui Na is best suited for rectifying chronic pain, musculoskeletal conditions and stress-related disorders that affect the digestive and/or respiratory systems. Among the ailments Tui Na treats best are neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, sciatica and tennis elbow.

 Designed to improve and restore the flow of qi, treatment often ends up causing improvements to the whole body, not just a specific area. There is anecdotal evidence that headaches, constipation, premenstrual symptoms and some emotional problems may also be effectively treated through Tui Na.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
