Gua Sha Facial Specialist

Become a Gua Sha Facial Specialist

Gua Sha is a massage technique using a patented white jade tool for facial and neck rejuvenation based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) healing principles. This treatment is designed to relieve tension in the muscles of the face, boost blood circulation, and encourage lymphatic drainage to banish bloat. It helps break up fascia, the connective tissue that hugs muscles but can sometimes interfere with optimal circulation. The increase in circulation is said to increase hydration for that coveted youthful glow, and it even helps the skin to naturally purge blemish-causing dirt and oils.

Upon successful completion of this this workshop, attendees will receive a Gua Sha Facial training certificate as well as an opportunity to purchase additional supplies to perform the Gua Sha facial from the instructor.
