Ziggie Bergman revolutionised the beauty industry the UK with her passion for gua sha and facial massage which was unknown in the late 90’s, when she was probably the first to bring Gua Sha to the west after training in Japan. She still receives rave reviews in the press, as the first integrated shamanic healing and Gua Sha facelifting treatment and programme.
My teaching of Stone Medicine may be different to most of the sources of Western intuitive or scientific perspectives, and to those of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which developed after the Cultural Revolution and is practised in the Western world, as opposed to Classical Chinese Medicine. It is the profound philosophical principles and energetic healing qualities of stones within the perspective of Classical Chinese Medicine, and also my interpretation of this from a reflexology perspective using the 10 Zones in Zone Theory and reflexology point placement, that distinguishes the Facial Gua Sha Mastery - Stone Medicine course from all other training.
Facial Gua Sha has taken TikTok by storm and 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 have won awards, or had reviews in local press. One reflexologist 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”.
The Facial Gua Sha Mastery 2-day course is open to all professional reflexologists, massage and beauty therapists. It will teach you an appreciation of the ancient Daoist tradition of Stone Medicine, giving deeper and profound meaning to the gua sha and its application for both health and healing as well as facial sculpting and lifting. As the face holds emotions, every line and marking on the face has a deeper meaning which you will explore during this training. You will also learn to use the tools warm for additional benefits, as hot crystals emit infra-red which benefits not only skin conditions but also can improve vessel structure and function in the eyes and brain. (Although I will give examples of various conditions different Stones are believed to benefit, and the Facial Reflexology point placement, this is not a course focused on the medicinal use of Stones in relation to pulses and their application on acupuncture points and meridians used in Chinese Medicine. As treating complex medical conditions, is beyond the scope of this continuing education training, aimed at reflexology, massage and beauty practitioners. If you are however a doctor of Chinese Medicine or a qualified medical doctor, this does not apply and you can use Stones medicinally).

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.
