Facial Gua Sha is is performed with a “scraping” tool and technique is used to stimulate muscles, providing a passive form of exercise for the musculature of the face, promoting skin tightening and increasing skin tone. As well as, this technique relieves muscle tension, improves blood circulation, and encourage lymphatic drainage. It breaks up the fascia, the connective tissue that can interfere with optimal circulation.
When I perform Gua Sha massage during a facial treatment, my intention is on lymphatic drainage and muscle stimulation for added muscle tone. The lymphatic system is a crucial part of your immune system and often when congested, it will often create a bumpy texture on the surface of the skin. For problematic skin presenting with bloating, inflammation, clogged or congested skin, lymphatic drainage can be a game changer. In my studio, I like to partner this massage with a decadent face oil providing amazing benefits for the skin. I use Maya Chia Supercouple beauty oil.
The Super Couple is a multi-correctional high-performance ultra luxe face oil serum combining one of the world’s most powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin, with nature’s #1 superfood, chia, rich with skin-loving omega fatty acids, antioxidants & minerals. Astaxanthin is an anti-aging powerhouse to combat the appearance of dull, tired, aging skin.
I prefer to utilize a Gua Sha OPAL heart shaped scraper. Each stone has properties that are beneficial to the treatment. The Opal stone is best for love, loyalty, peace, consciousness, and faithfulness. I offer this tool at my studio. It comes with a diagram on the proper way to utilize the tool for best results.
The facial gua sha massage is both beneficial and relaxing massage modality. I hope you will come in and give it a try soon. The Opal Gua Sha retails in studio for $25 and the Maya Chia Supercouple is $86. I am currently running a Mothers Day Promotion for $100 for both items, packaged and ready to gift for Mothers Day! I deliver to your door!
Also, Gift Certificates are available for Mothers Day for my Signature Facial for $125. Then they can experience the luxury for themselves.
