Facial Gua Sha has taken TicTok by storm and is unquestionably the self-care revolution of the pandemic. With devotees showing off before and after pictures of sculpted jawlines, clearer skin, and sharper cheekbones. With so many people taking self-care into their own hands, it might seem worrying for us as professional therapists, however, the opposite is true, and demand for Gua Sha facials is higher than ever. There has been a public shift, from having traditional facials or massage to wanting something more, an experience, not just a service. So by adding Facial Gua Sha Mastery to your therapies, you will transform the way you work, harnessing ancient and modern techniques to help you stand out from the competition, attract new clients, and most importantly get amazing results for your clients.
“Just in the past few months after training with me, I have several therapists who won awards, had reviews in the local press, one appeared on national TV demonstrating some of the skills they learned, another went from charging £45 an hr to landing a job in a top London hotel spa and now charges £180 an hr. So learning world-class skills will not only help your clients they will help you transform your business, which is more important than ever in difficult times clients must see you as an essential part of their wellbeing”.
Ziggie Bergman is a pioneer in facial gua sha and one of the first to bring this ancient therapy to the UK, after learning gua sha in Japan in 1992. She later deepened her knowledge and artistry of gua sha at the College of Chinese Medicine, where she also studied Facial Cupping with notable international gua sha trainers. So you are in the safe hands of a gua sha master with 30+ years of experience.
This training will teach you how to become a Facial Gua Sha Master, with the most advanced professional therapists training of its kind. Using 6 different crystal and stainless steel tools all with unique benefits, you'll learn to lift and sculpt the face, and neck and decollate + Zone Face Lift sculptural massage. You will also have an understanding of how and why to use warm gua sha. The sequences and techniques used can be added to the Zone Face Lift, Facial Reflexology, Beauty, and Massage treatments.
Pre-requisite: Level 3 or equivalent in Massage, Beauty or Reflexology. You do not need to have studied gua sha before.
Many of you will have some of the tools required, so you can just purchase the extra ones needed in the shop at www.zonefacelift.shop however if you are new to learning with Ziggie purchase the Facial Gua Sha Mastery Bundle, and we'll send a 40% off code to help you purchase what you need once you have registered. I also recommend the 100ml ZFL Frankincense, pomegranate & rose facial oil formulated for gua sha pro treatments.
Ziggie Bergman was a TV director working with celebrities and models including Elle Macpherson, Kate Moss and Keira Knightly, until a chance encounter with Reflexology changed the course of her life. Two minutes of reflexology solved what a doctor had struggled to treat and she immediately brought the treatment into her green room to calm nervous presenters and guests.*
Leaving television, she trained in Reflexology and moved to Santa Fe where she spent many years learning from Native American shaman and healers in New Mexico and this inspires her training and practice.
