Many people think of Guasha Facial Therapy as a light brushing for the facial surface with a massage paddle. At Sageikan, the therapy doesn't just treat the skin's surface. It is a special technique that is able to penetrate deeper facial muscles to relax any stiffness resulting in amazing long lasting effects.
The treatment starts with applying pressure on the face.
The acupressure points of the face are pressed with the rounded tip of a small "Guasha" tool that is shaped like a fish. If pressure is applied too quickly the body's defense mechanism will be activate and the facial muscles will tense up.
It is important to treat at a moderate speed.
The depth of the pressure applied is also important. The treatment applies pressure not only to the skin's surface but the deeper into the facial muscle to relax stiffness.
The treatment will follow with a rubbing of the surface of the face with the massage paddle.
The treatment also focuses a lot on the area near the jugular bone and gums as they easily become stiff.
Many people wonder if this deep therapy damages their skin. However, by regulating the angle of the Guasha paddle the skin will not be damaged.
The therapy uses natural oils such as rose, rosemary, sandalwood, geranium and juniper berry.
Therapy is recommended for an instant facial lift a day before a special occasion, such as parties, ceremonies and anniversaries.
On the day of therapy it is also recommended to get a lot of sleep. The following day, patients can experience better skin tone for an easy smoother makeup finish.
