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.
$100 (includes a high quality jade gua sha tool)

The Polar Vortex has brought harsh temperatures and chilling winds that are wreaking havoc on our skin. Central heating and radiators add to the moisture zapping resulting in dry, red, chapped skin. Our rule of thumb is that when you turn on your furnace, it’s time to switch up your skin care routine to hydrate, heal and protect your winter skin.View full article →

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We have all been affected by breast cancer, whether it be personally or with a mother, sister, coworker or friend.
Commonly referred to as Pinktober, walk into a grocery, hardware or drug store and you will find an array of pink ribboned candy, toilet paper, t-shirts, screwdrivers and even a bucket of chicken.... all in the name of breast cancer awareness.
Unfortunately, these pink ribbon initiatives are beneficial to the corporation's bottom line rather than the women who are at risk of or living with breast cancer. They capitalize on the pink ribbon to promote a perception of being part of the solution to the cancer epidemic. Sadly, some of the Breast Cancer Awareness pink ribbon products contain carcinogenic pollutants that are actually harmful to our health. It's difficult to comprehend how a corporation that proudly promotes itself as a champion in the fight against breast cancer refuse to remove cancer-causing substances from its products.
This practice is referred to as Pink Washing.
You are what you eat - it's true, the health of your skin is directly affected by what you eat. Foods grown organically retain more beneficial nutrients than their conventionally grown counterparts and are kinder to the environment.
Your skin may be feeling the effects of days spent out in the sun but fall brings many fruits and vegetables that can help restore suppleness to your skin.
On your next trip to the grocers or your local Farmer's Market, seek out the following foods rich in antioxidants to help you achieve healthy, glowing skin.
