Learn the real basis of Facial Gua sha!

Hello. I'm Clive and I built this to show you how simple ideas from Chinese medicine can transform how you treat worry lines, frown lines, saggy eyelids, crow's feet, eye bags, dark rings under the eyes, bunny lines, smile lines, lip lines, double chin, jowls and platysmal bands! 

This isn't your average aesthetics course!

In this facial Gua sha course, I don't only show you how treat the face - but how to use the body to treat the face too! I don't talk about creams, or oils or lymph nodes or what you might get in upteen online videos. Instead, I base everything on tried and tested methods and ideas from Chinese medicine and as practised over 20 years in my clinic. 

Learn with confidence!

I've sold more than 25,000 books in 5 languages, have run a busy 5-treatment-room clinic in  North Africa and the Gua sha Center in Barcelona. If you want to learn about Gua sha, real Gua sha, not some hybrid, invented facial massage-type technique, click the button and come and join me!

If you’ve always wanted to…

  • learn the basic Gua sha technical skills to make real changes on the face. 
  • master using gentle Gua sha techniques on your face, head, neck, arms and legs safely and securely.
  • learn how your body and face are interconnected and how to use this ancient knowledge. 
  • start treating people with confidence and get great results …
THEN THIS VIDEO COURSE IS FOR YOU!

NOTE:
If you are looking for a facial Gua sha course which is rubbing some cream on your face and doing lifting motions while repeating banal explanations of toxins and massage mantras, then this is NOT the course for you! This is for people who REALLY WANT TO KNOW what they are doing and why in terms of Chinese medicine with facial Gua sha and to make lasting changes to the face. 

What participants say about the course

OMG what a difference! I was doing Gua Sha but not YOUR way and nothing was happening. I accidentally come across your name, liked what you said about treating the body in order to treat the face as it all connected was like a light bulb going off in my head. Big thank you. Clive

Just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed your facial Gua Sha Course. The results are so amazing in terms of general wellbeing as well as the lovely glow and lift it achieves on the face. I'm so pleased that I took your course and will be introducing the protocols into my salon treatments as soon as I can.

FAQ

What's the difference between this course and the Facial Gua sha Certificate level 2 course?

This facial course is part of my Basics series of Gua sha skills. Like others in this series, it gives a basic, practical overview of Gua sha allowing you to get straight into my way of using Facial Gua sha and use it without any fuss!  
The level 2 certificate course is much longer and more in depth and gives you the theoretical background and practical skills to take Facial Gua sha to a whole new level. In order to take the level 2 course you need to first complete level 1 which gives you the foundation for all the things you look at in level 2. It also reveals an ecological way of looking at the body and the face based on Chinese medicine and will I'm sure, open up a whole new world for you!   

Can I get a certificate after completing the course?

Yes, you can. Once finished, you can be awarded a Certificate of Completion. All you have to do is request it on completion of the course.

When can I start the course?

You can start anytime you want. You just need to choose your course, pay the appropriate amount and you'll have access to the course right away.

Can I take my time finishing the course?

You can take as long as you like. There is no time limit. When you buy the course, you're buying it for life!

What if I am not happy with the course?

I take your investment seriously, and I’d appreciate if you took my investment of time and resources into your success in treating with Gua sha seriously as well. Due to the nature of the services and/or products provided, refunds will not be given unless otherwise specified in writing. If you are not sure about the course, please buy one of my books first.
