WHAT IS GUA SHA?
Gua Sha Detox is a traditional, over 200 year old, Chinese holistic technique that is not as well known as acupuncture, but just as effective. Gua means to scrape and Sha means toxins, which can give you a clue about how the practice is used. There is a similar therapy in Europe, called Tribe-Efflurage.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
During a Gua Sha session, your skin firstly to be treated with the house made organic solution. Enriched with antioxidant, vitamins and skin supporting substances the solution exfoliates epidermal buildup of dead skin while nourishing. We then use a special tool to gently scrape your skin and enhance the lymphatic and blood circulation for up to 400 percent. Following with an application of organic oils that bind the toxins, we literally squeeze them out of your oil and sweat glands. Infrared light is used to promote pore opening, increase blood flow and product penetration. Lastly, we comfort your largest organ with calming, anti-inflammatory organics. This is a whole body therapy with optional adjustments to your comfort level.
