Gua Sha Facial Treatments are an excellent way to relax while working on wrinkles, fine lines, circulation and tension. Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese healing technique that involves scraping the skin with a message tool to improve circulation. It offers a unique approach to better health, addressing issues like chronic pain. During treatment, the technician scrapes the skin with short or long strokes, using a Gua Sha massage tool, to stimulate blood flow and lymph drainage. They do so after applying nourishing facial oil to your skin. Gua Sha massage is intended to address stagnant energy, called Qi ('chi'), restoring its flow. Rubbing the skin's surface is thought to help move the stagnant Qi, remove blockages and promote healing. This results in decreased inflammation and reduced pain. Combine this with a total body nervous system acupuncture session and you're bound for bliss.
