Facial Gua Sha on the brow can both relax and soften lines, and also activate facial energy points that can clear your eyes, head, open your sinuses and relax your entire nervous system.
The genius of TCM cosmetic dermatology is not just that it improves your facial appearance, but that it does so by invigorating the deeper health of your fascia, muscle and the energy pathways that connect to your deep organ systems.
