Lisa will guide you through a how-to on facial cupping and two types of gua sha (lymph/circulation and lifting/contouring) while Holly walks you through a self-facial using exquisite serums, balms and hydrating mists from Wildcraft to put these self-care steps into action!

These effective, gentle, and easy-to-use manual techniques increase circulation to the skin, can decrease wrinkles and discoloration, stimulate collagen, reduce acne, enhance lymphatic drainage, puffy eyes, and give you a gorgeous glow. Immediate plumping and lifting.

You will leave with a facial cupping set (for face & eyes), gua sha stone and take-home instructions to create your own ritual at home.

Our beloved Josh Rosebrook posted a deep dive on all the benefits of gua sha on his bog recently - check it here!
