Oresta and Laryssa have studied Gua Sha with world renowned Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor, Herbalist and Acupuncturist Dr. Ping Zhang. Having completed the certification in Gua Sha, we have been offering Gua Sha in our facial treatments for over one year. Many of you have experienced the incredible lifting, firming, wrinkle-smoothing and tension-releasing results of Gua Sha. To those who have never experienced Gua Sha, prepare to be amazed.
Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese Medicine technique that involves the press-stroking of a small jade tool to gently massage and stimulate various energy points on the face, forehead, jaw and neck. It increases blood flow, improves lymphatic drainage, releases tension and toxins, reduces puffiness and inflammation, breaks up scar tissue and promotes firm, healthy, glowing skin.
We are excited to offer a workshop where we will teach you a simple yet effective Gua Sha facial rejuvenation massage with your very own jade tool that can be incorporated into your daily home skin care regime.
