Sandra Chiu,


Sandra is an acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist and founder of Treatment by Lanshin. In practice for over a decade, she focuses on treating skin disorders and rejuvenating skin using the unique approach of Chinese medicine, which she believes will transform the future of skincare.

Specially trained in herbal dermatology, she uses Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture to resolve common skin problems like acne, rosacea, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis. In recent years her work with skin and facial rejuvenation has also received increasing interest and media attention.

Through her initial success in treating pain conditions, infertility, digestive disorders, etc., Sandra observed her work also had a powerful impact on restoring skin quality and youthfulness in her patients. Today she applies the successful techniques she has learned and developed into her signature style of anti-aging work

Providing education to clients has always been of key importance to Sandra as a way to help them create lasting patterns of health and vitality. Nowadays, her highly demanded classes have expanded to the general public, where she teaches people how to bring TCM into their daily lives as self-care practices.

At the end of the day, Sandra hopes that her work can continue to inspire more people to know the great wisdom and wonder of Chinese medicine, which offers a nourishing perspective on the deeper dimensions of beauty and vitality within each and every being.

Facelift, Filler, or Acupuncture?

Day Three: Sunday, October 2, 2022 | 9:30 AM - 10:00 AM

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ “2020 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report,” interest in non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic procedures has far exceeded surgical procedures in recent years. In step with this trend, Chinese medical cosmetic treatment also continues to gain interest. Learn about the key tools and strategies employed in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to address common cosmetic concerns like wrinkles, declining skin laxity and elasticity, facial shape changes, and skin hydration. Examine the strengths of TCM cosmetic strategies in comparison to popular non-invasive Western treatments like radio frequency, fillers, neurotoxin, etc. Evaluate integrative scenarios of how the Western and TCM approach can work together, and when one might be preferred over the other.
