The Yin Your Skin Signature Experience is a transformative treatment, much more than just a facial. The effects of this unique facial gua sha treatment travel from the skin to the core. The treatment invigorates the lymph flow, skin metabolism and releases tension in the connective tissue, which improves skin mobility and tissue hydration. It effectively relaxes the nervous system layer by layer, providing optimal conditions for the renewal of the skin, body and mind. The treatment visibly brightens and tightens the skin, instantly removes puffiness, and accentuates facial features like the contour of the jawline and cheekbones. The treatment brings together techniques from the traditional gua sha, acupressure, connective tissue manipulation and manual lymph drainage performed by gua sha tools. The 100-minute treatment is a combination of facial gua sha from the décolletage to the crown of the head and Yin Your Skin signature sound healing composed by Finnish pianist and composer IRENE.
