Facial treatment begins

Before the Gua Sha massage, our standard facial procedure will begin with cleansing, enzyme/acid/derma-plane exfoliation, extractions (if appropriate), and application of treatment serums.

Gua Sha massage

Gua Sha  is done with light to moderate pressure and performed from one full side of the face to the other. We use the jade stone to work up the neck, over the jawline, under the cheekbones, under the eye, over the brow bone, and up on the forehead—lifting and detoxifying with each pass.

Finishing the facial treatment

After the Gua Sha massage, our standard facial procedure will continue. A treatment mask will be applied with ice therapy and the treatment will end with a moisturizer and SPF.


After just one treatment with Gua Sha in Kansas City, you will notice a nice glow thanks to the increased blood flow. This brings much needed natural nutrients toward the surface of the skin. The lymph system will be flushed, causing the skin and under eyes to appear less puffy.

Overtime, regular Gua Sha treatments will help lift and tighten the skin.
