Professional Support for Hands-On Self Care
Introducing Virtual Glow Facial Health Treatments: part consultation and part tutorial – easy to follow from the comfort of home. Currently in-person facial acupuncture, facial cupping, gua sha or Qi Beauty™ are unavailable at the clinic due to the pandemic, but we are offering personalized support through these online sessions.
One to one virtual consultations are booked through a secure video link. These 60 minute appointments can be customized according to your needs and your available treatment materials.
You will be using your breath, your hands and a few materials you may already have at home – or that are fairly easy to source. Results are often seen much faster with gua sha tools or facial cups.
Your treatment tutorial may include personalized instruction on one or more of these self care modalities:
- Facial Acupressure
- Facial Gua Sha
- Facial Self Cupping
- Qi Beauty™ Home Kit
- Choosing and custom blending essential oils for your skin type
How does a Virtual Glow appointment work?
Initial Intake & Recommendations
We will start the video call with an intake covering a brief health history, as well as your current goals around skin health, face pain or tension and any outward signs of aging.
From here, we’ll discuss your daily routine and make recommendations for both hands-on self care methods, skin care and lifestyle suggestions.
Step by Step Tutorial
The next step will be a customized facial treatment demonstration – that you can simply watch or follow along with from home.
Depending on what approach is needed, this may include Acupressure self massage as well as Gua Sha tools, Facial Cups or Qi Beauty gold-plated magnets.
BONUS: get feedback on your technique to ensure best results.
After the live video session you will be sent a recording of the practitioner performing the exact facial self care steps in your customized Virtual Glow routine.
Options for both daily “express” self care as well as a more detailed “spa day” protocol will be offered.
This recording is yours to practice along with as many times as you’d like.
What can a Virtual Facial Treatment help with?
Maintaining and preserving a fresh, healthy glow, including:
- Minimizing appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Boosting skin tone, overall complexion
- Reducing redness, inflammation, uneven skin texture
- Reducing the look of puffy skin
- Improving dry, blotchy skin or other skin irritations (such as “mask acne”)
But it’s not just about beauty concerns – this type of treatment instruction can also be of help for:
- Overall discomfort from facial tension
- Jaw pain from clenching
- Mild cases of Bell’s palsy
- Post-stroke symptoms of the face
What will you need for your virtual treatment?
The most important tools are ones you already have – your hands! We will also go over the correct use of other tools that you may have access to at home already – such as facial gua sha tools or facial cups.
No gua sha tools? Not a problem – your virtual appointment includes a free facial gua sha tool ($18 value) sent to you by mail (or pick up at clinic). A small shipping fee applies for delivery outside of GTA.
All of the recommendations are “needle-free”, and are safe and effective when used with proper care and instruction. Any of the self care tools used in the demonstration are readily available on-line, or can be purchased via the practitioner.
