What is Gua Sha?
Gua Sha facial is based on an ancient Chinese healing technique, first referred to in a classical Chinese medical text from around 220 CE and it was fairly different from what we are more familiar with nowadays. The facial treatment takes place by using rollers and rounded edge tools of all shapes, made of rose quartz.
The massage strokes help to break up muscular tension caused by water retention. Which leads to reduced puffiness or inflammation. The benefits are not only temporary, over time and practice it has long-term results. This all-natural face lifting also promotes collagen production which fills and softens the fine lines and wrinkles, while boosting the skin’s elasticity. The treatment also causes lymphatic drainage, aiding your body to eliminate unwanted toxins.
Head, Neck Massage and Facial massages
If the Gua Sha technique is not for you, then why not opt for a traditional pressure point facial massage or relaxing head and neck massage to ease away any tension you may have leaving you feeling totally relaxed and refreshed whilst also providing lymphatic drainage and improving circulation. If you want to go even deeper into a relaxation state a meditation can be soothingly played in the background of your treatment.
Ultrasonic Face Cleansing
This add on treatment is a professional skin care system with 3 modes for the complex care of your skin: ultrasonic massage, ultrasonic peeling and Iontophoresis. This beauty device gently cleans and refreshes the skin, acting as a lifting massager and comedone extractor.
Iontophoresis tones and massages tissue on a cellular level. It enriches the skin with oxygen and enhances the process of nutrients absorption in the deepest skin levels. High frequent vibrations thoroughly clean skin pores and make your skin soft, fresh and delicate. Whilst the Ultrasonic skin scrubber effectively removes old cells and stimulates rejuvenation process.
Blackheads, pustules, Milia and pimples can all be safely removed using various techniques and equipment in a clean and sterile environment. Advanced extraction techniques cause minimal trauma to the skin and prevent the risk and spread of infection.
This exfoliating treatment works by scraping dead cells (and fine hairs) from the skin's surface with a surgical scalpel, moving the tool slowly across the face. It’s an instant skin refresh. How? Build-up of dead skin can make for a 'dull' complexion and encourage breakouts (from clogged pores and blocked hair follicles). Hair-removal is sort of a side note, the real resolution is fresher feeling skin, from the exfoliating cleanse.

This treatment leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
