  • Wildcraft 38 Windermere Boulevard Charleston, SC, 29407 United States (map)
You will leave the workshop with a facial cupping set + jade gua sha tool to use during your own skincare ritual at home.

Enjoy a unique workshop with Lisa Abernathy on essential oils and Chinese medicine techniques you can use to enhance the health and beauty of your skin. 

We will discuss essential oils and carrier oils that are beneficial for your skin so you will better understand which products to purchase or make at home. Then you will luxuriate in a self-facial using exquisite serums and balms from Wildcraft.

Lisa will explain and guide you through facial cupping and gua sha, and you will leave with a cup and gua sha set to use at home. These effective, gentle, and easy-to-use manual techniques increase circulation to the skin, decrease wrinkles and discoloration, stimulate collagen, reduce acne, enhance lymphatic drainage, puffy eyes, and give you a gorgeous glow. Immediate plumping and lifting.


Lisa is the founder and co-owner of Blue Heron Acupuncture & Apothecary, a Classical Chinese Medicine Clinic providing personalized, holistic and effective care for the Lowcountry. As an acupuncturist and herbalist, she enjoys helping people enhance their physical and emotional well-being, become more mindful, create healthier lifestyles, and learn to live in sync with the seasons.

Gua sha has quickly become my favorite facial tool.
