Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese treatment that includes the use of a small jade board to gently massage, manipulate and stimulate specific energy points along the face and body, using a “scraping” motion which helps break up blood stagnation, release toxins, and promote lymphatic drainage.
The Dark Green Gua Sha Facial Fusion therapy achieves immediately noticeable results in the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, dark circles, puffy eyes and sagging skin by combining a unique blend of facial massage therapies that clears noxious accumulation, releases deep-seeded tension and promotes the free flow of vital nutrients to feed the skin and re-pattern the way it ages.
By increasing movement through massage and restoring inner mobility, the skin is able to naturally clear deleterious obstructions that lead to acne, rosacea, puffiness, dark circles and sensitivities. Igniting this natural healing power, the skin flourishes, develops a fresh healthy glow that radiates from within and results in long-term benefits.
Gua Sha + Lymphatic Drainage is a next level facial therapy that brings about a fundamental change in the skin by clearing stagnation and accumulation in the channels, enabling the renewal of the lymph, activating circulation, stimulating cell activity and the regeneration of the facial tissue.
