Learn how to improve your skin the Chinese way
Have you ever considered having a face-lift? Would you like your skin to improve and be rejuvenated?
As we grow older, we lose collagen and our skin gets thinner, drier, and somewhat less elastic. It is therefore not able to protect itself anymore from damage. The collagen is broken down by UV light and hence as we age, we start to get wrinkles! This, of course, will happen to everyone, given time, however, we can help to make it not so severe by using proper skincare.
To this end, this masterclass claim it is "better than Botox, less dangerous than fillers, longer lasting than lipstick". and is cosmetic acupuncture. This process is done with Chinese medicine by the Zhong Centre and Dr Abbie Acupuncture.

Uses for Jade Gua Sha
Jade Gua Sha is a facial massage stone and is made of pure Jade. It is a cooling and cleansing stone and has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries to aid the body's filtration organs. They are generally hand carved from the highest-grade, pure jade crystal, and this tool hugs the curves of your face and neck in order to increase blood circulation. It will also smooth your skin as well as stimulating a variety of acupressure points.
Whilst encouraging circulation to the face and neck, it will aid lymphatic drainage, boost "qi" and "xue" to the face, and clear "qi" stagnation to make your eyes brighter.
You will be taught how to increase collagen and healing repair processes in your face and your neck.
Abbie will teach you to understand this ancient beauty technique which was used by Emperor's geishas and concubines to maintain their beauty and youthfulness.
During the workshop, other tools and demonstrations will be included and you will have the opportunity to buy any of these if you so desire.
