Gua Sha Facial and Neck Rejuvenation

Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese treatment that has been touted for its incredible beauty and healing effects, namely in preventing and treating the signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging, dark circles, and for promoting overall skin rejuvenation from the inside out.

Gua Sha is a precise technique that includes the use of a small medicinal board to gently massage, manipulate and stimulate specific energy points along the face and body, using a “scraping” motion which helps break up blood stagnation, release toxins, and promote lymphatic drainage. The resulting beauty benefits are immediately noticeable: the appearance of wrinkles, sagging, dark eye circles, puffy eyes, age spots and discolorations are reduced, and complexion is brighter, healthier, younger-looking and radiant.

In this class, Dr. Ping Zhang – a pioneer in the field of TCM anti-aging and facial and body rejuvenation and the inventor of the “Gua Sha Facial” as well as the first-ever patented Gua Sha Beauty Tool – will teach students how to properly perform Gua Sha on the face and neck, using much gentler strokes than those used in traditional Gua Sha performed on the body. Her Jade stone board is the result of years of research and customization, designed exclusively for the precise contours on the face and neck.

Gua Sha works on multiple levels, by activating the facial fascia, facial muscle and different layers of the skin, soft tissue, sinews and tendons. Protocols will therefore include Myofascial Facial Diagnosis and stimulation of various Myofascial deep tissue, skin, connective tissue, sinews and tendons, using gentle strokes that follow the meridian system and activate specific acupuncture points without using any needles.

The course is structured with step-by-step instructions and demonstrations, followed by hands-on practice of the precise lifting, scraping and “sweeping” techniques in the following 6 treatment modules:

  • Youth Line Lifting
  • Double Friction
  • Gentle Strike
  • Wrinkle Work
  • Neck Lifting
  • Flawless Complexion

This workshop will teach you how to incorporate the unique and precise techniques of this ancient beauty treatment in your professional practice, and provide your clients with something that never gets old: long lasting and sustained beauty.

Required Materials:

1 sheet, 1 towel, 1 pillow, 1 pillowcase, unscented oil/cream, pen and paper, comfortable clothing.

The patented Jade Stone Gua Sha Tool will be provided by the instructor for use during the class, and will be available for purchase at the end of class, if you choose. For those interested in purchasing the tool from Dr. Zhang, please bring $65 cash or check payable to Nefeli Corp.
