gua sha Facial Therapy

 
 

Developed & used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 3,000 years, Gua Sha was originally used as a technique performed only on the body in a vigorous motion to release lymphatic stagnation, muscle tension & improve circulation. More recently, Gua Sha has adapted to Western culture resulting in a much more gentle approach suitable to treat our shoulders, neck & face.

Benefits of Gua Sha Facial Therapy:

  • Encourages self-hydration of skin.

  • Defines & tones facial muscles.

  • Prevents wrinkles & improve appearance of existing lines.

  • Releases muscle tension in shoulders, neck & face to allow for proper lymphatic function.

  • Encourages microcirculation, bringing oxygen & other nutrients to skin.

  • Overall relaxation & allows the nervous system to enter a parasympathetic state.

  • Moves stagnant blood & lymph that may contribute to dark circles & under-eye bags.

  • Reduces appearance in congestion & blemishes.

  • Aids in quicker recovery from blemishes & prevent scarring.

  • Allows serums to penetrate deeper post-treatment.

  • Great alternative to BOTOX, fillers & other invasive procedures.

Gua Sha Facial Therapy includes cleanse, relaxing Gua Sha, customized finishing products. Extractions are not included, nor are they recommended.  Best results are seen with a weekly series, though you will experience glowing results from just one treatment!

After a single session most will notice a more defined jawline & cheek bones, lifting of brows, de-puffed eye area along with overall more radiant complexion.  To achieve more lasting results, a weekly series of 8-10 sessions is encouraged. 

 

Please wait at least 3 months after any Botox, fillers or other invasive facial procedures before booking.
