We choose the finest in natural medical products including Skin Script, Snow Lotus Essential Oils and Dermalogica. Snow Lotus produces high quality, unadulterated essential oils for use in therapeutic, clinical, and practical home-care applications. Peter is an acupuncturist who personally sources and selects the oils directly from small producers worldwide who ethically wild harvest or sustainably cultivate the plants and distill the oils in small batches.
One of the main tenants of Naturopathic medicine is to stimulate the Vis.The Vis is the vital force of the body. The innate healing power of nature. Physical medicine treatments like hydrotherapy ,exfoliation and mineral wraps are done to promote this process.
The skin is your body’s largest organ of elimination. Even so, it is often overlooked when thinking about getting healthy. Of course the goal is always beautiful radiant skin but this process is good for your overall health as well!
During the facial process the skin is hydrated and softened to allow waste products pass more easily. With your pores nice and open the minerals from the mud can easily absorb to nourish you skin and your whole body. High quality essential oils are also easily absorbed and have full body effects.
In Asian medical philosophy the face is reflection of the entire body. Addressing problem areas of the skin of the face is thought to impart better overall health.
Facial Gua Sha is done with either Jade or Rose Quartz tools. The stone impart healing benefits and the technique smooths the facial and muscles reducing holding patterns of the face that lead to wrinkles.
Facial Cupping works in similar way to increase circulation and stimulate the skin for a healthy glow.
We love to pair this treatment with our infrared sauna or a full body mud wrap. Make sure you drink lots of water before and after as these treatments are quite detoxifying.
