A Fusion of Proven Facial Massage Techniques
The CJB Gua Sha Self-Care protocol combines Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) facial rejuvenation practices with the cell renewal benefits of manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) and additional proprietary techniques that are corrective, preventive and effective for all ages, skin types and tones.

By increasing movement through massage, the skin is able to naturally clear deleterious obstructions that lead to common skincare concerns and premature aging. 

Understanding Your Stone!
In addition to learning how to use your Gua Sha Facial Massage stone and demystifying the theory behind the techniques, we help you understand the careful design, intention and purpose of each angle and edge, so you can achieve the results you desire. 
Note for Professionals
All protocols are for self-care and specific to using the CJB Gua Sha & Facial Massage tools. Although many techniques can be transferred to working on clients, it’s NOT the intention and doesn’t replace our Gua Sha Facial Fusion 3-day Hands-on Certification program.

“Self care is a form of self exploration, understanding and compassion towards oneself. Guiding others into their self care using the facial tools and witnessing them make the connection is a highlight for me.”

I am a low tech, high touch skin therapist who believes in the power of stress relief and nature to accomplish skincare goals. 

I find the results of working in a heart centered way are wonderful, and I only want to work in this way. I most enjoy working with my hands combined with ancient techniques of skin manipulation and using quality ingredients and tools that are of the earth much more than anything else.
