Gua Sha ClassElder Apothecary
January 15th from 4 pm to 6 pm -
Gua Sha is utilized to clear blockages in meridian channels, which connect our organs together and transport both blood and Qi (life force). Our channels need to be clear in order to work harmoniously and for Qi to flow well throughout the body. Gua Sha imparts a truly holistic effect on the body. This manual movement stimulates our lymphatic system, helping our organs function optimally by breaking up stagnation, flowing debris and toxins within the body for easier expulsion. Regular use can prevent the signs of aging such as sagging, dull and wrinkled skin. Since Gua Sha helps stimulate circulation, the technique itself oxygenates and carries nutrients to the skin cells. The increased blood flow resulting from Gua Sha contributes to a more lively, plumped up and youthful appearance. Specially Crafted Crystal Gua Sha tools (Rose Quartz, Jade, Amethyst, Obsidian, Rainbow Flourite, Jasper, Opalite and Tiger's Eye) provided for use during the class and also available for purchase.
