THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW SOLD OUT. Please call or text the shop @ (843) 901-9040 to be added to our waitlist, which will give you early access to our next gua sha/cupping workshop.
Please join us for a unique workshop with Lisa Abernathy , owner of Blue Heron Acupuncture & Apothecary and Holly Thorpe, owner of Wildcraft, on Chinese Medicine techniques to enhance the health and beauty of your skin.
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.
Our beloved Josh Rosebrook posted a deep dive on all the benefits of gua sha on his bog recently - check it here!

REGISTRATION OPENS JUNE 5th
All welcome, ages 13 & up only. Sign-up in-store @ Wildcraft or call (843) 901-9040; $55. Price includes both facial cupping & gua sha tools, plus instructions to take home. Participants may be shown in promotional photos &/or video.
This is a non-accredited class. Our focus is teaching our community how to create their own self-care rituals at home, although many holistic estheticians attend to learn directly from a licensed Chinese Medicine practitioner to incorporate these techniques into their services. If you want to be certified in gua sha for your own practice, I highly recommend going through Nefeli Corp. & Dr. Ping Zhang (or one of their certified trainers).
