Another great holistic skin care class. Facial Gua Sha & Facial Cupping. So thankful for my teacher Michelle Gellis an acupuncturist and facial rejuvenation expert! 💜✨ Many people want to know what facial Gua Sha and Facial cupping is so here is a little explanation:
A cupping therapy session utilizes small facial cups with a light vacuum suction. After applying a serum, these are "parked" for a few seconds over a deep wrinkle to increase blood flow, and then moved along the face and down the neck to drain lymphatic fluid and stimulate blood flow. The benefits include increased circulation to the skin, drawing nutrients to the surface, and enhancing absorption of serums.
This treatment will bring collagen to the surface, reduce dark circles, diminish lines, and drain the sinuses and lymphatic system. Conditions such as TMJ and sinus pressure also can be relieved. Patients often describe feeling very relaxed, with a deep warmth and tingling sensation long after the treatment has ended. Facial cupping is entirely painless. In fact it feels relaxing !
Facial Gua Sha
Facial gua sha is a technique in which specially crafted hand-held pieces of smooth jade or other crystal are used to invigorate the skin, smooth out wrinkles, and increase blood supply. Often part of a comprehensive rejuvenation program, gua sha is especially good at addressing areas such as the neck and jowls, which are prone to sagginess. The increased blood circulation helps to detoxify the face and provide increased blood flow, so the skin is better nourished and healthier.
Part of the benefit of this treatment is that acupuncture points on the face are massaged with the gua sha tool, which in turn benefits the internal organs. The better your liver and kidney are working, the healthier your skin will appear.
These treatments are also used for skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, melisma, dark circles, and are suitable for sensitive skin. Chinese medicine for facial rejuvenation can bring a youthful appearance and results are seen after one treatment but a series of 8-12 is recommended for maximum results. #holisticfacial #greenbeauty #naturalhealing #bergencountynj
