What is a Gua Sha Facial?

A Gua Sha facial gives a deep cleanse to the face, reduces facial tension and is a natural facelift.

A stroking motion with a smooth flat ‘tool’, generally made of jade or rose quartz, is moved smoothly over the skin and into the muscles using long and short strokes. This improves the blood circulation and encourages new cell growth. Lymphatic drainage will remove any toxins released from the soft tissues and muscles, reducing puffiness in the face or under the eyes.  You will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed with a rejuvenated complexion.

Gua Sha massage is a traditional technique used for improving health and treating illness and is widely practised in China and South East Asia.


What’s happens in a session?

A short consultation to find out what you would like to get from facial and to identify any underlying health factors impacting on the skin – shiatsu to release any neck tension – a light application of oil in preparation for using the Gua Sha tool – detailed use of Gua Sha techniques for the face – lymphatic drainage to remove toxins – use of a jade roller to cool the face.

‘It was a surprise to see that even after one Gua Sha facial treatment my face looked more relaxed and refreshed, with the skin around my eyes and forehead lifted and the puffiness below my eyes less.  Doe has also used her knowledge of the body successfully to help alleviate the pain I was experiencing around my ears and jaw.  I am happy to say I am no longer in any discomfort.  In short I would thoroughly recommend Doe. ’
