Plum Blossom for Hair Loss

Plum blossom therapy is a great alternative to prescription finasteride (which can come with unwanted side effects) and toxic creams and over the counter medications.

I love plum blossom therapy, it’s gentle and effective for hair loss. It involves using a tiny hammer with light pressure just until slight redness appears. This stimulates circulation to the scalp which helps to reawaken hair follicles and encourage hair growth. DHT, the compound responsible for hair loss, is only formed in low oxygen environments, so by increasing circulation with plum blossom therapy, the concentration of DHT is reduced. Studies have shown an 80% success rate for androgenic alopecia % and a 97% effectiveness rate for alopecia aureata in all genders.

Plum blossom therapy can be used both for scalp hair loss and also for encouraging facial hair growth. It can even be used for reducing scars, wrinkles, pores, visible blood vessels, and can increase collagen and skin softness (for facial feminization therapy).

In combination with herbal formulas, this technique can create significant hair restoration. Find out more about herbal formulas for hair loss here.
