Want to enhance your self-care at home routine? Learn how to relax and detox yourself daily with a traditional facial gua sha massage in this relaxing live streaming class!

Gua sha is part of traditional Chinese medicine, where a tool is used to scrape your skin in order to produce light petechiae. Practitioners believe gua sha releases unhealthy bodily matter from blood stasis within sore, tired, stiff or injured muscle areas to stimulate new oxygenated blood flow to the areas, thus promoting metabolic cell repair, regeneration, healing and recovery.

Facial gua sha is a treatment that involves scraping a flat jade, rose quartz or black obsidian stone (best) over the skin in upward strokes to relax stiff muscles and promote tissue drainage.

In this live online class, you will learn the skills and techniques of applying gua sha at home with the right steps. Your friendly teacher Kathryn will also take you through specific meridians, trigger and detox points to help lessen wrinkles and ageing in exchange for healthy, young and glowing skin.

The benefits of gua sha:

  • Moves lymphatic fluids and breaks down tension in muscles
  • Improves blood flow and less puffiness
  • Treats signs of premature ageing
  • Increase in circulation to up hydration for that coveted youthful glow, and it even helps the skin to naturally purge blemish-causing dirt and oils

All you need to join is your own personal gua sha tool and you'll finish the class with all the skills and techniques to use this amazing tool effectively!
