Gua Sha is a full body treatment that enhances blood flow, releases heat-toxin and stimulates immune response by scraping parts of our body. Often Gua Sha results in petechiae, some small red/purple spots, on the skin, however, they are painless and usually disappear after several days.
Researches have shown that Gua Sha is effective in helping with migraine, chronic pain, inflammation and even anxiety.
Facial Gua Sha and Bojin
When Gua Sha on the body aims for releasing heat-toxins, facial gua sha is a more gentle treatment to stimulate lymphatic drainage and enhance blood flow for our skin. This helps reduce puffiness and brings a toning and sculpting effect to our face.
By focusing on acupoints, Facial Bojin helps break up the blockage around chin, nose and eye areas. Bojin can enhance the movement of Qi and blood to improve dark circles, wrinkles, puffiness and skin tone.

Cupping has been a therapy for many centuries. When positioned on specific areas, suction cups creates movement of blood and Qi, breaks up stagnation, helps with pain and improves immune function. Often cupping is used to release back and neck pain, tight muscles, reduce skin issues and lower blood pressure.
Although cupping might leave some red marks afterwards, it is virtually a painless and non-invasive treatment.
