The beauty industry is changing.
Are you tired of working with chemicals and superficial quick fixes in your treatments?
Are you a massage therapist or acupuncturist wanting to bring more attention to the face and beauty in your treatments?
Are you ready to break into the green beauty industry?
Clean beauty and wellness are becoming the new normal, and facial Gua Sha is a trend that's here to stay.
Let's be the change we want to see.
Hi. I’m Britta Plug, and I’m on a mission to change the beauty industry. I’m the founder of The Green Beauty Academy, Studio Britta -- the boutique facial studio in the heart of Manhattan, and co- founder of the clean beauty brand Wildling.
I want to share the modality that completely changed my career and my life.
Facial Gua Sha is a technique drawn from ancient Chinese medicine, and can most easily be described as a specialized stone massage treatment for the face. In skilled hands, it can de-puff, sculpt, destress and detoxify the face in a single session. It’s been called a natural facelift, and touted as an alternative to botox.
This course contains the exact framework I’ve developed over years of practice and study to go beyond the surface and affect muscle, lymph, and connective tissue.
If you're looking to create dramatic results that go far deeper than any machine or product can reach, this course is for you.
You won't regret this investment!
A beautiful experience from start to finish.
This course was incredibly useful; I cannot speak its praises enough.
Do I need to be a licensed professional to take this course?
Yes! Licensed estheticians, massage therapists, acupuncturists and anyone who has a license to do body work and touch therapy is welcome to take this class. If you are currently in school and pursuing your license, you are also welcome!
How is the course delivered?
Each week you'll receive a new module with videos and audio files to learn the protocols. The following week you'll have a live Q & A with Britta the following week. Your first module will be delivered September 30th so you'll have ample time to receive your gua sha tools in the mail.
Are the tools I need included?
We've got you covered! Included in your enrollment is a Wildling Gua Sha tool, as well as a wand-shaped fire quartz gua sha tool for sculpting and contouring the face, both of which will be shipped to your home upon enrollment.
What is the schedule for the live Q and A Calls?
Q & A calls take place every other Monday at 12pm PST (3pm EST.) You can submit your question before the call and if you are not able to make it live, Britta will answer it on the call, which will be recorded and accessible throughout the duration of the class. The live calls take place on October 7th, October 21st, November 4th and November 18th.
How long will I have access to the course material?
You will have access to the course videos for 6 months from the date the course begins. The course workbook that contains written and visual instructions for all the protocols (including the acupressure bonus) is fully downloadable and printable, so you'll have it forever.
What is the refund policy?
We believe in this course 100%. However, if after 14 days you can hand in all the completed course work and assignments and find it is not to your satisfaction, we will issue you a refund of your purchase, less a 10% administrative fee.
I’m unsure if this course is a fit for me. Can I talk to someone from the Academy?
Absolutely! Just send an email to our Admissions Director Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org She will be happy to set up a time to answer your questions.
