Acupuncture is known for its healing benefits and now TV presenter and model Lisa Snowdon has revealed how the alternative therapy has helped her physical and emotional wellbeing. The star took to her Instagram page to share a photograph of herself receiving the treatment to her face. Lying on a salon bed with needles sticking out of her forehead, cheeks and chin, it looked sore to say the least, but Lisa insisted the treatment didn't hurt one bit and raved about its benefits. The This Morning presenter had the treatment to revive herself after a boozy holiday in America and boost her immune system.

Lisa wrote: "I so needed this… I’ve now progressed to 200 needles!! And yes they are everywhere! Don’t be freaked out, this is a much needed MOT for my body mind and soul. I’ve been jet-lagged from our trip to the states, which means my sleep has been all over the place. I drank my body weight (which is quite a lot these days!) in tequila, vodka and rosè, I’ve had A LOT of fun but it’s all about balance."

She added: "This treatment also helps to lift and tone the muscles in the face... what’s not to love?" Lisa continued: "For those who ask if it hurts, it really doesn’t- I honestly wouldn’t keep going back and paying for a treatment that hurts, it’s actually so relaxing it’s like the body just goes ahhhhhhh when the first needles goes in."

"Sarah also uses LED lights on my tummy to help soothe my digestive and adds the lights to my face once all the needles are in and also does a reflexology treatment with her healing hands. It’s a proper treat for the whole body."
