a moving cup massage
Similar to traditional body cupping, facial cupping focuses on lymphatic drainage and bringing more Blood and Qi circulation to the skin and muscles. In stimulating circulation in facial cells, we stimulate those responsible for collagen production, which can brighten the skin and minimize the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles! Facial cupping also can tone the chin, jawline and neck by decreasing puffiness. Unlike traditional body cupping, facial cupping does not leave any marks on the face. They are smaller and made of glass with a hand pump attached. The cups themselves are not stationary like some traditional body cups. We use oils to glide the cups along the face to promote lymphatic drainage and plump fine lines and wrinkles. You often will notice an immediate increase in tone and lift. Some rosiness and glow occur post cupping but no marks or bruising. Cupping can be added on to any service, just call, text or email us to book an add-on!
a gentle jade massage
Gua sha is a facial treatment that involves dragging a flat jade or rose quartz stone over the skin in very gentle upward strokes to relax stiff muscles and promote tissue drainage. It is used much less aggressively over facial curvatures than on the body to bring new blood to the surface and promote lymphatic drainage. Gua sha relaxes tension in facial muscles which can cause lines and can be seen as a kind of exercise for the face. With regular use, gua sha can tone skin and promote increased skin elasticity. It's linked to clearer skin, fewer wrinkles and a more sculpted appearance. Gua sha can be added on to any service, just call, text or email us to book an add-on!
