Facial Cupping & Gua Sha
Q: Is this a beauty trend?
A: No, it's a lifestyle for health & rejuvenation.
Facial cupping and Gua Sha have been been around for thousands of years utilized by men and women from Asia, Africa to Europe. In these modern days many of us are taking our attention back to old tradition to not only boost our health but to enhance our beauty from the inside out. There have been articles with countless celebrities touting the benefits of acupuncture for beauty and wellness. The good news? it's accessible to all. We now have choices that range from elective procedures to more gentle and alternative therapies with Facial Cupping and Gua Sha.
The goal of both is essentially to stimulate more qi and blood flow to the facial muscles while improving the flow of lymphatic fluids to reduce inflammation and puffiness, as well as helping to minimize wrinkles and fine lines.
Facial Cupping and Gua Sha are best combined with Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture sessions over 12 weekly sessions for optimal results. However, when done alone as part of your weekly regimen, you can also reap great benefits with skin that glows healthy and plump.
Both Facial Cupping and Gua Sha are relaxing as the muscles are gently worked out bringing a natural flush to any and all complexions.
