Gua Sha Facial

Boost circulation and enjoy beautiful skin with Gua Sha facial, an ancient natural healing technique which uses a small smooth-edged tool and sweeping motions to smooth lines, firm face contours and reduce puffiness.

What is Gua Sha Facial?

Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese natural healing technique which has been used for centuries to enhance health and reduce pain by promoting the flow of qi (pronounced ‘chi’) through the body. Gua Sha facial uses the same ancient ‘scraping’ technique to improve microcirculation and skin elasticity with a focus on the face and neck. Using a small Gua Sha smooth-edged tool, your specialised Gua Sha therapist uses long, repetitive sweeping motions to relax your facial muscles, boost skin circulation, reduce puffiness, and promote healthy blood flow.

The Benefits of Gua Sha Facial

Gua Sha facial is a non-invasive tool-assisted facial massage which provides enhanced skincare benefits working as a natural face lift by improving circulation and promoting collagen production. Gua Sha facial can smooth and soften fine lines and smile lines, reduce dark circles and puffiness, lift eyebrows, lift and firm jowl area, firm face contours, and improve the appearance of the neck.

What Happens During the Treatment?

Wear minimal to no makeup and comfortable clothing to your session. Your therapist will assess your skin and ask about any health conditions before your session. If your skin is inflamed or reactive it’s best to wait before having Gua Sha facial; then acupuncture is recommended instead of Gua Sha facial at this time. Gua Sha facial mainly works on reducing deep wrinkles and eliminating fine lines to give a natural face lift, reducing puffiness and improving circulation and collagen production.

During your session you will be lying down with access to the face, neck and décolletage area—all to be treated in your session. All natural products by Perfect Potion are used for Gua Sha facial at our centre. Gua Sha facial sessions consist of a warm compress, cleanse, exfoliation and moisturising followed by a Gua Sha routine, with gentle work on the neck as well as a head massage. The session will be gentle and deeply relaxing. If anything feels uncomfortable, speak to your practitioner.

Gua Sha facial once a week is a good starting point moving to once a month when a desired effect is achieved.
