Holistic Skin Therapy

IMG_1508_edited.jpg

Holistic Skin care is an ancient practice that takes a whole-health approach to skin concerns. By looking at the bigger picture to go beyond your external symptoms, your Holistic Skin Therapist will seek to understand the root cause of your skin imbalances - it is not all creams, cleaners and moisturizers!

The idea is that our internal health radiates outwards through the skin. So if we treat what is happening deeper we will achieve the cosmetic goals we are truly seeking. This practices promotes the use of natural products and holistic approach over invasive surgical techniques or abrasive dermatological treatments. Holistic skin therapy techniques consider the health of the person as a whole, including nutrition, lifestyle and emotional factors. As a result, these treatments are for everybody.  A healthy mind, body and soul will ultimately result in healthier radiant skin.

Gua Sha Facial

Our Gua Sha facial treatment involves gently massaging the face and scalp using a flat crystal stone to relieve tension, promote blood flow and assist in moving sluggish lymph through the body. The soft edge of the stone will provide natural contouring to the face by moving and flushing stagnant fluid. It can be used in a series of treatments to achieve a youthful contoured appearance of the skin or as a one off treatment to ease tension, promote relaxation and reduce puffiness in the face. 

Gua sha treatments are ideal for those who hold tension in the face, neck, scalp or jaw. By utilizing relaxation massage techniques for the face and scalp, you will leave feeling rejuvenated, lifted and sculpted.
