15. W.O.W! Wellness.Oneness.Wonders! Facial Guasha & Eye Guasha
While the guasha treatment is traditionally used in East Asian and Chinese medicine, it’s become popularised over the past couple of months, and we can totally see why.
A treatment that involves scraping a flat jade or quartz stone over the skin in an upward strike to relax stiff muscles and promote tissue drainage, Facial Gua Sha is a massage technique designed to relieve tension in the muscles of the face as it stimulates certain energy points along the face to promote Qi (energy) flow, boost blood circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage to banish bloat.
The treatment package also includes an Eye Guasha treatment to help get rid off toxins from around the eye area and help to rejuvenate them.
If your partner is in need of a skin rejuvenation and a much-deserved me-time, she will appreciate this thoughtful and pampering gift.
W.O.W! Wellness.Oneness.Wonders! Facial Guasha & Eye Guasha is available at a special price of S$58 (U.P. S$356) at the Salon Finder by Daily Vanity.
