Our EnerChi Gua Sha Facial is based upon principles of Traditional East Asian Medicine. It supports facial fitness by increasing circulation, tone, and by stimulating the body’s natural systems of renewal.
Why so Effective
The treatment activates cellular processes and meridian pathways that generate renewal of tissues under the skin. When underlying skin tissues become devitalized, they breakdown, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, droopy eyes, sagging jaw, a dull complexion, and dry skin.
How it Works
The EnerChi Gua Sha facial begins with gentle unidirectional strokes across the face and neck, using a smooth-edged gua sha hand-held tool. This breaks up congestion in the cellular matrix under the skin, vents heat due to inflammation, and moves fluid accumulation. I am always amazed at how quickly the skin tones up once inflammation and edema are addressed!
Soothing rhythmic gua sha strokes activate the restorative parasympathetic phase of the autonomic nervous system–the true antidote to stress-related skin issues. Gua Sha research has demonstrated that gentle compression of the connective tissue cellular matrix stimulates fibroblast activity. These are the cells that produce elastin and collagen fibers. This results in increased tone, elasticity, and hydration. The EnerChi Gua Sha facial truly supports renewal from the inside out!
Next, acupressure is applied to specific acupuncture points on the face and neck to stimulate chi (qi) along meridian pathways. Did you know that many facial acupoints points belong to acupuncture meridian pathways which support the digestive system? When these systems are functioning properly, it results in good health and muscle tone. Radiant skin and a bright countenance are signs of good health and vitality.
