Correct application of Facial Cupping and Gua Sha and about correct usage of carrier oils for skin rejuvanation, youthful look, elasticity and tone
Both these techniques have outstanding effects on skin tone and elasticity resulting in clients often appearing to look up to 10 years younger within a few hours following treatment.
Gua Sha will redden the skin to allow for Blood and Qi to come to the surface and initiate the healing and stimulation of collagen and elastin this is done through friction pressure.
Whilst facial cupping also brings Blood and Qi to the surface to flush and plump up the skin reducing contours, fine lines and wrinkles but this is acheived through suction.
They are both very simply to apply and are mutually complementary. They also can help smooth facial contours and improve facial apprearance, fine lines, sagging, wrinkles and colour
The carrier oils will also add to this overall skin rejuvination and youthful appearance effect


Correct Application of Carrier Oils

Also on this course we teach the correct application of 10 useful carrier oils
Oils are chosen specifically for each type of skin and how to choose between them to help the skin tone and condition of a particular client and these oils are used in both Gua Sha and Facial Cupping treatments
