FACIAL CUPPING + GUA SHA: Ancient Chinese Practices to Beautify Your Skin

  • Wildcraft 38 Windermere Boulevard Charleston, SC, 29407 United States (map)
You will leave the workshop with facial cupping + jade gua sha tools 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, hydrosols 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, gua sha set and instructions to create your own ritual 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.

PLUS, A GIVEAWAY! We've collaborated with Hausful, a locally owned modern, Scandinavian design shop, for ONE lucky attendee to go home with this adorable vanity mirror (pictured here), great for storage + at-home facials. Winner will be randomly selected during the event. Definitely check out Hausful's beautiful space off Sam Rittenberg Blvd in West Ashley!


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.
