I've taken this Class each time it has been offered ... so much so Lynn tells everyone that I'm not an "inside plant." For the Class provided on December 30, 2020 (my Bday), I treated my three daughters and my only daughter-in-law to this special event. They each were so grateful to learn how to give themselves a personal, loving facial. I look forward to COVID not giving me anxiety so that I can make a special trip to see Lynn personally. In the interim, this is a wonderful alternative. I'm so grateful to Adeline and her Team and Lynn and her Team for providing this wonderful online opportunity during such a stressful, anxiety-ridden time. Hugs!
I has a wonderful time and it was such a nice treat to be able to do something for myself. I have already incorporated the practice into my weekly routine, Lynne is a great teacher and provided instant feedback to us all. It was so relaxing and there was such good energy. I cant wait to make an appointment with Lynne in person.
Tl;dr: best $39 i have spent in a long time - so good i did the workshop twice!!
So, I did not know exactly what to expect when I signed up for this workshop. I only chose to do it because I love massage, and the coronavirus has really made it impossible for me to be able to treat myself in the ways I usually do. However I had no idea how lovely the workshop would be! Not only was it a full hour and a half of a deep, meditative, relaxing ritual-I came away with concrete skills to help drain lamp for my body and more importantly, A WHOLE NEW FACE!! My face literally changed shape by the end of the workshop-the rounded edges near my jaw line became heart shaped, my traditionally puffy eyes were smooth, and even my cheekbones looked way more defined. This is with no special products or chemicals, just the specific massage routine Lynn teaches. I now do the gua sha routine at home, and the results in terms of skin texture, clarity & shape are amazing.
I really appreciated the chance to learn from Lynn about how to use my gua-sha tool. I didn't even know how to say it, let alone use it! Lynn was really kind, slow, but also very knowledgeable about how to use this tool. Even two (or so? Pandemic!) days after the event, I have used it and thought about how it works. She took us through how to do a whole routine. There is so much to know about this, but Lynn was able to simplify it, without making it simplistic. I came out of the 1.5 hour workshop with more knowledge and sense that I could do this for myself. I urge you to get on this workshop train the next time there is a stop available!
Lynn is such a lovely, calm, and knowledgable teacher. I learned so much and am so excited to see long term effects that I experienced during the workshop. I told my husband about it and now he wants to learn how to do it!
