In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) the face reveals the body's physiological and psychological history. This gives us an in depth look into all facets of each individual's well-being present and past. Nothing exists in isolation, so identifying threads between symptoms & dis-ease is critical in achieving better health, wellness and honest aging. All clients must begin with a facial diagnosis consultation in order to create a roadmap for achieving your goals holistically. This consultation can be done in person or remotely with 3 pictures: neutral face, no makeup, straight ahead and 2 profile pictures including a clear shot of ears.

Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese healing method that promotes blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, using a smooth stone tool.

Gua Sha also helps improve fine lines and wrinkles.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
PHOTON THERAPY (LED)
LED is the acronym of Light Emitting Diode which is a computer chip encased in a glass-like resin. It emits therapeutic wavelengths (or colors) of light energy. Light emitted by LED consists of 4 visible colors (red, blue, green, yellow (amber) and one invisible (to the eye) color called infrared.
When light energy is in the correct wavelength, the cells in the dermis layer of skin will convert it into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the fuel cells need to function.
The fibroblast cells in the dermis layer is where collagen is produced. Collagen gives the skin fullness (that plumped look) and elastin gives the skin the ability to bounce back. LED re-energizes these fibroblast cells which results in an increase in collagen and elastin.
RADIO FREQUENCY (RF)
RF is a nonablated (non-wounding) treatment that uses radio waves to tighten skin by stimulating the growth of new collagen fibers. RF skin tightening works by breaking down collagen in order for new collagen to form. New collagen gives your skin more support and firmness, thus resulting in a smoother, sleeker, and younger-looking skin. RF is often used as an alternative to surgical facelifts, and is a good choice for those wanting additional support for collagen production, smoothing wrinkles, repairing sun damage, or tightening skin on the neck and décolleté
