Gua Sha Glow Facial
Gua Sha Glow Facial is a natural way to enhance the appearance of your skin and increase your overall glow while enjoying full body relaxation. This treatment includes a combination of facial gua sha stone massage and facial cupping. It is a pregnancy safe alternative to Cosmetic Acupuncture. Depending on the client a few needles (no more than 8) will be placed on the face.
Each Gua Sha Glow Facial takes place in our candlelit private treatment rooms with soft meditative music playing to encourage a sense of calm. After the first treatment, you can expect a natural glow on your face.
Please note that this service does not include traditional facial elements such as deep skin cleansing, detoxifying, steaming, extraction etc.
