Facial Courses

 

Gua Sha Facial Massage is designed to relieve tension in the muscles of the face, increase blood circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage.  It works and trains the muscles for a more contoured face.  In addition, it lessens wrinkles and helps to rebuild collagen.

Using the gua sha tools allows you to work deeper into the muscles & fascia
