While high-tech of the beauty world is popular at Organic Facialist we concentrate on old-school, proven protocols that provide results that are visible after one treatment. Clients experience long term lifting, toning and radiance that accumulates after several treatments. Gua Sha is one such example, a method of facial massage with a jade tool. It origins in the ancient medical traditions of China and Southeast Asia, gua sha is sometimes called “spooning” or “coining” because of its long history of make-shift home practices.
The facial version of gua sha is much more gentle that the traditional version done on the body. Facial gua sha is a massage technique designed to relieve tension in the muscles, boost blood circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage to banish bloat, puffiness and discoloration under the eye. The brighten effects are amazing alone after one treatment!
Gua Sha is more powerful that the roller in terms of breaking up congestion and encourages deeper penetration of the Osmosis MD serums used during all Organic Facialist treatments.
