Gua Sha Facial Massage

Gua Sha (scraping device) and acupressure therapy have been traditionally used in TMC for thousands of years. Ancient art of healing in TMC believes that to be in good health the vital life force (QI) must be in balance, similarly to homeostasis. When there’s a blockage of QI (or stagnation) this will manifest in the imbalance of a person’s overall health (emotional, physical, spiritual and mental). 

Imbalanced QI can be displayed on a person’s skin or face, such as changes in texture, colour, complexion, impurity, puffiness , inflammation/breakouts, redness, pain and stiffness.

Gua Sha or scraping tools are used on the skin and tissue to stimulate them. When this is apply on the face, it will improve the appearance of the skin by increasing tone, elasticity, reduce fine line and inflammation. Additionally, it is believes that Jade has  healing properties such as, cooling, protection, TMC, suggested that Gua Sha and Jade’s cooling effect will help decrease puffiness of the skin on the face and help with lymphatic drainage as well as reduce headache, sinus pain and relieve muscle tension in the face. It is believe to be a natural ‘Botox’ as not only just on the skin surface by giving a younger looking skin but it will promote youth and balance from within.

I visited Jane Hickson for Arvigo Massage. It was absolutely fantastic. Jane is definitely a fountain of knowledge. She is very thorough and very helpful and cannot do enough to help. She really informs you about what she is actually doing during the treatment and what the benefits will be. I will definitely book another treatment.
