Based on Chinese Medicine protocols, this treatment incorporates face mapping, T.C.M. elemental diagnosis, Gua Sha techniques on the face, neck and shoulders, acupressure points, Chinese Medicine meridian diagnosis and correlation to specific and general conditions. 

According to traditional Chinese medicine, Qi or Chi is energy that flows through the body. Many people believe that a person's Qi must be balanced and flowing freely to ensure their health and well-being. Qi can become blocked, causing pain or tension in the muscles and joints. Gua Sha aims to move this blocked energy to relieve stagnation. Traditional East Asian medicine also views blood stasis or stagnation as a cause of pain and illness. Another aim of Gua Sha is to move stagnated blood to relieve symptoms.

 

 

 

This process is believed to stimulate blood circulation to the muscles, tissues and organs; detoxing the body of stagnate “Qi” reducing stiffness, pain and increasing mobility. Gua Sha is an eastern anti-ageing technique that we use in our latest eastern facial in conjunction with the Jade Rollers. This ancient tool is used in rhythmic strokes  to massage, smooth and scrape the skin to release stagnation, muscle tension and tightness in the face. It irons out fine lines, tightens and speeds up the elimination of congestion such as eye bag.

 

Face Gua Sha helps to decongest the skin and improve blood flow and circulation.  The firm but gentle scraping movements encourage lymph drainage to the face and neck which detoxify, helping to clear sinus congestion, prevent acne, dark skin pigmentation and puffiness or dark circles under the eyes.

 

Regular Facial Gua Sha helps prevent acne breakouts by reducing clogged pores, can reduce acne scarring as it encourages new skin growth and will also allow the organic facial oils to penetrate deeper to nourish the skin.
