Using different types of Gua Sha facial tools, including rose quartz to work over acupressure points and to release tension, stimulate circulation and aid with lymphatic drainage. Different shapes of tools need to be used in different ways, to make sure that no damage is done to delicate skin and blood vessels. Firmer is not necessarily better in this instance, technique is the key.
The ‘TCM Facial Gua Sha’, is a separate training that uses different Gua Sha stones for sculpting & lifting. We begin by warming the muscles of the face before working with different shaped Gua Sha tools, to lift and sculpt the face, working over acupressure points and meridians, so there is a wellness hit too. You can show your clients how to use the Gua Sha tools, host workshops for non professionals and use them in your own self care routines. My first experience with these tools and Vietnamese acupressure points was many years ago whilst travelling in South East Asia. I took a year out to travel and learn. Time well spent. Years later, with lots of experience and research under my belt, I am still learning, still fascinated, still passionate. You will be awarded NRRI CPD points, if you are a member.
Price for TCM Facial Tools is €147 including a Gua Sha tool.
This training is open to non reflexologists, as we don’t reference foot reflexology zones or techniques. However, you do need to be an experienced therapist who has passed A&P, as I will be mentioning Facial Reflexology. I am afraid there is no movement on these requirements.

Catherine Clooney, B.A., Hons, MAR, NRRI.
Over 15 years ago, I was working in a fast paced, corporate environment in Central London. I was suffering from stress, working long hours, smoking and not taking care of myself. Reflexology saved me! That is when I decided to change direction, to follow a caring and nurturing path in life. I trained in classical reflexology in London, with the London School of Reflexology, approved by The Association of Reflexologists.
