Launches on April 7th, 2020

Connecting Gua sha to the natural world

I say this with confidence, you won't find a Gua sha course like this anywhere else in the world! In level 1, we set the scene for a completely different kind of treatment and now in Level 2, we explore further into the natural world of Gua sha to make connections between the face, the body and nature.

Offer something new

Facial courses can easily be found but what sets this apart is in how it teaches you a unique ecological approach to the face, fully based on the original ideas of Chinese medicine! This means leaving the course with something totally unique to offer people and gives you an essential niche to follow.

What's new in level 2?

- The aging process from the perspective of ancient Chinese medicine and the natural world
- The sinew channels - how all your muscles work in organised groups based on the movement of plants
- A total understanding of the relationships between facial muscles and the rest of the body
- Facial Gua sha tools and techniques
- The emotional impact on the features of the face
- Local treatments for aging-related facial features e.g. crows feet, smile lines, worry lines
- Distal treatments for aging-related facial features
- Treatment for facial disorders e.g. pain, trigeminal neuralgia
