GUA SHA CERTIFICATE LEVEL 2: FACIAL GUA SHA by Clive Witham

GUA SHA CERTIFICATE LEVEL 2: FACIAL GUA SHA

This is the second part of our exclusive course in ecological Gua sha from Clive Witham, best-selling Gua sha author. (NOTE: The completion of Level 1 is a prerequisite to take this course).

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.

A new kind of esthetics!

Facial courses can easily be found but what sets this one 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 the tools to be a new kind of practitioner.

FAQs

What's the difference between this course and the Facial Gua sha Essentials course?

The Facial Gua sha Essentials course gives a practical overview of Gua sha allowing you to get straight into my way of using Gua sha. The explanations are short and to the point and the videos are of direct treatment.  
The level 2 certificate course is much longer and more in depth and gives you the theoretical background and practical skills to take Facial Gua sha to a whole new level. In order to take the level 2 course you need to first complete level 1 which gives you the foundation for all the things you look at in level 2. It also reveals an ecological way of looking at the body and the face based on Chinese medicine and will I'm sure, open up a whole new world for you!

Do I get a certificate?

Yes, just like level 1, there are short tasks and quizzes after each module and at the end, there is a final exam in which the pass mark is 70%. On completion of passing this final exam and the video assessment, you will be awarded a certificate of Gua sha Expert Practitioner Level 2.

What if I am unhappy with the course?

We take your investment seriously, and we’d appreciate if you took our investment of time and resources into your success in treating with Gua sha seriously as well. Due to the nature of the services and/or products provided, refunds will not be given unless otherwise specified in writing.
