Conscious Beauty Talk with Amy Wall

Gua Sha, the darling of the holistic skincare industry, translates to “scraping skin”, and has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It originally involved repeated pressed strokes over lubricated skin with a smooth-edged and blunt instrument. Commonly a ceramic Chinese soup spoon was used, a blunt, well-worn coin, honed animal bones, jade, or even a simple metal cap. Now, in modern-day North America, Gua Sha has been westernized and many feel that this ancient wisdom has been appropriated for profit while watering down the sacred practice. Anna Wang a first-generation Chinese American, joins us to discuss her views on the culture, history, and evolution of this humble facial tool and how we can best embody its medicine while honoring its roots.

Anna Wang graduated with a Esthetician License from Aveda Institute of Chapel Hill in 2015. She has always had a passion for helping and education people in skincare and makeup. Anna is certified in Usui Shiki Reiki I and II. Reiki is a form of energy heal with the palms that help heal any physical or emotional pain over time.
Anna is also a member of the Energetics of Esthetics, the mastermind for the preeminent Esthetician. anna@peonybeautyandspa
