gua sha Facial Therapy
Developed & used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 3,000 years, Gua Sha was originally used as a technique performed only on the body in a vigorous motion to release lymphatic stagnation, muscle tension & improve circulation. More recently, Gua Sha has adapted to Western culture resulting in a much more gentle approach suitable to treat our shoulders, neck & face.
