There are two easy options for learning how to get good results for you and your clients with Gua Sha Facials. In both cases you will learn the theory and practical skills to master an effective treatment that your clients will love.  Study at your own pace, at a time that suits you with full learning support given along the way.

Option one is the complete comprehensive course.  Delivered over 4 weeks, this course will grow your knowledge and skills, giving you the confidence to bring the natural skin care and massage technique. Weekly lessons will give you a detailed introduction to Facial Gua Sha, with video tutorials showing you exactly how to work on clients

The second option is still the complete course but in module format. This gives you even more flexibility to learn at a pace that suits you.  Plus, if you’ve already got the basics you can take the module that focuses on a particular treatment zone that you’d like to learn more about.

Please note, for all workshops you will need to be qualified or working towards your qualification. If you have been out of the industry for a while but want to get back into it, the Facial Refresher Course is ideal for you.

If you’re a recently graduated or experienced Beauty Therapist, the natural holistic modalities are a great addition to your repertoire. Learn how to include new techniques into to your regular facial work and be aligned with the growing trend towards a much more natural approach.

I have been a Beauty Therapist for over 25 years, I absolutely love our industry and it thrills me to have the skills and experience to help our industry grow. After a time spent working in different settings and many, many happy hours spent learning, I discovered my true skill and passion are therapeutic facials. I have a strong foundation in European Techniques, which are naturally complimented by other methods such as Gua Sha, Kansa Wand and Natural Facelift Massage. This means I have much to share that can help you take your facial treatments to the next level and set you apart from other Beauty Therapists.  There are both online courses and in person workshops available, read on for all the details.
