Dien Chan Zone® Facial Reflexology 30 minutes
This offering is a natural therapy that works with every organ, muscular and skeletal systems to encourage your body to self heal by stimulating points on the face. This gentle therapy treats any imbalance in the body such as skin conditions, migraines, back pain, recovery from surgery, digestion issues, hot flashes, menstrual pain, PCOS, fertility issues, anxiety and everything in between. Stimulating the movement of blocked energy along the nerve channels, helps to restore homeostasis (balance) in the body. Treatments take place with the receiver lying down comfortably, fully clothed and facing up. Many fall asleep, others enter a deeply meditative state and some feel sensations around their body.
Facial Gua Sha 30 minutes
This offering is an ancient healing technique from Traditional Chinese Medicine. Using gentle massage movements in one direction with a small jade or gemstone board. These movements help to support the lymphatic and circulatory systems. They open up channels to clear stagnant pathways and improve flow, while also lifting, toning the muscles, connective tissue and bringing fresh oxygen & nutrients to the skin. In addition, this treatment also helps to release deep jaw tension, iron out fine lines & wrinkles and brighten the complexion. Treatments take place with the receiver lying down comfortably, fully clothed and facing up.
