Holistic Modalities We Use in Our Facial Treatments

We specialize in massage-based organic facials, using holistic, integrative modalities that gently guide the skin to a balanced state of wellness. We have training and certifications in Facial Gua Sha and Facial Reflexology modalities. We supplement these techniques with the medicinal qualities of plant-based skincare, developed and formulated with principals in herbalism.

Facial Reflexology

Facial Reflexology has a history in Vietnam, and is guided by the use of specific points or zones on the face, which are gently stimulated to encourage a "conversation" with the nervous system, requesting rebalance of the entire energy system. This implies improvement in symptoms you may be experiencing, not just in skincare, but inclusive of the body as a whole. By stimulating specified zones on the face using reflexology principals, we're able to offer assistance in areas of the body such as the musculoskeletal system, reproductive system, nervous system, urinary system, and digestive system. We work with the body's natural intelligence, while our use of Facial Reflexology facilitates this function.


Facial Gua Sha

Facial Gua Sha is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine and the profound cell renewal and life-sustaining importance of Manual Lymph Drainage, both supported by the foundational importance of Connective Tissue manipulation. When performed correctly, Facial Gua Sha has the ability to offer noticeable differences in the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, dark circles, puffy eyes, and sagging skin by combining a unique blend of facial massage therapies that clears noxious accumulation, releases deep-seeded tension, and promotes the free flow of vital nutrients to feed the skin and re-pattern the way it ages. By increasing movement through massage and restoring inner mobility, the skin is able to naturally clear deleterious obstructions that lead to acne, rosacea, puffiness, dark circles, and sensitivities. These techniques invite the skin to develop a fresh, healthy glow that radiates from within.
