the art of gua sha to boost your circulation and lymphatic drainage, clear toxins, and lift and sculpt the skin.

What is Gua Sha
Facial gua sha is simply the greatest gift you can give your skin. The stresses of daily life have a huge impact on our skin, and regardless of how expensive your face cream is, if the circulation isn’t working properly and your skin isn’t being nourishing from within, you’re wasting your money.
Gua sha works with the meridian lines, acupressure points, and lymphatic system, and this simple self-massage technique helps to soothe out any stress and tension by stimulating the circulation and increasing the flow of nutrients to the skin. It also boosts lymphatic drainage to help clear toxins, eliminates puffiness and congestion, lifts and sculpts, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Learn the art of gua sha and how to use your crystal tools and you can achieve that longed-for radiant glow in just one minute.

The consultation (via Zoom) went way above any expectations I had and Katie took me on an incredible journey learning not only about the Gua Sha techniques with the beautiful crystals, but also took it to a very personal level tailoring the experience to my age, skin type, and my holistic self.” - Donna Cleavor
