Holistic and TCM Facial Treatments

​Our founder, Liz Munn, has extensive training in TCM techniques as it applies to skincare and balancing.  Combined with her training in native herbs, herbal medicine and herbal preparations she brings a unique and completely different approach to skincare, self-care and wellness.  She provides treatments based on her acquired knowledge your diet, your lifestyle, and presentation at each visit.  These treatments are performed by treating the skin through energetic balancing of the body with hands on facial massage, microcurrent therapies, energetics of foods, breathing techniques, and self- care techniques to be performed by you at home in additional to studio visits.  Depending upon the presentation and primary goal treatment timing.  Generally, clients begin weekly and taper to monthly as goals are met and progress is made.

TCM Inspired Skincare Treatment

Traditional Chinese Medicine has used the mind body connection for centuries to diagnose and treat all types of conditions. Depending upon your goals and the plan to reach them you may want to have a treatment weekly or every two weeks initially.  These treatments can be scaled to monthly once your goal is reached and you want to continue maintenance.   The treatments can be used for hormonal skin concerns, red inflamed skin, acne, during pregnancy, and many other skincare concerns.

This is a completely customized experience each time based on what your face tells us when you arrive for your visit.  A treatment plan is developed during your first visit and progressive therapies are used throughout.  A commitment of regular treatment is required to achieve results.  This is a very relaxing but active treatment. We use many hot towels in this treatment so if you are claustrophobic, you may not be a good candidate.  This treatment includes:

  • In-depth consultation
  • Deep cleansing
  • Face Reading
  • Repeated use of hot towels
  • Medical QiGong techniques
  • TuiNa Facial Massage
  • Suggestions on food energetics to incorporate into your lifestyle
  • May include use of micro-current during some visits

​Herbal Facial Treatment

Our herbal facial is our custom in house creation for most of the products used.  We use only EcoCert, organic, and/or nonGMO ingredients.  Many of the ingredients are locally foraged or grown by us.  We believe a herbal facial should be an experience but also feed your skin the very best the low country has to offer.  Our staff includes a trained herbalist who develops these ingredients based on what is growing and available so ingredients may change.  It is designed to balance skin and restore function.  This treatment includes:

  • In depth consultation to identify and address your primary skincare goals including diet and lifestyle
  • Deep cleansing with EcoCert approved ingredients
  • Exfoliation with in house created herbal scrub
  • Hot towels or steam
  • Facial massage or facial cupping with apothecary customized organic, non GMO essential oil blends
  • Herbal Infusion mask with non-GMO, organic and/or locally foraged ingredients
  • Application of apothecary creams, lotions or ointments
  • Mineral based SPF

Add on options: LED,  micro-current, lash and/or brow tinting and/or shaping

Herbal Consultation

An herbal consultation herbal remedies, raw ingredients, preparations is provided.  You will have the opportunity to purchase products based upon this consultation.  Should you prefer to purchase raw ingredients (based on availability) this is also an option.  Our apothecary maintains a large supply of locally foraged items from clean sources, personally grown items (non-GMO and organic growing methods observed), and acquired items from American sources labeled as non-GMO and organically grown or foraged from clean sources.  An in-depth consultation to include your primary goal, allergies, medications, and sensitivities is performed.

Apothecary Products and Treatment Descriptions

​Apothecary Blended Facial Teas

Created by blending herbs for skincare concerns. We use a variety of combinations based on seasonal availability. These decoctions are crafted from non-GMO/organically grown herbs or locally foraged herbs. Topical use of herbal remedies is a long-accepted form of herbal therapy. We use our facial teas during treatments in the studio and suggest these for home care for those in a treatment plan and home care maintenance. These are sold in mister bottles for easy use and application. These are suggested as a treatment product for your primary goal. Apply after cleansing and follow with moisturizer for optimal results.

Herbal Infusion Masks

Created in house based on your primary skincare concern.  All masks are formulated with herbal decoctions, herb infused oils, tinctures, and/or hydrosols.  We use these during our treatments and they are formulated for professional application only.  On occasion based upon the presentation, treatment plan for facials, and your primary skin goal we may provide a deconstructed mask with written instructions for application, use and removal.  This is usually in the form of a clay mask blend, not the mask used in treatment.

Apothecary Creams and Lotions

created in house by customizing the ingredients for your specific skincare goals.  We do provide several “pick up ready” formulations of our popular blends.  Clients who have not had a facial treatment or in-depth consultation may purchase pick up ready products.  A $25 consultation is required for apothecary blends in addition to the cost of the product purchased.  We recommend apothecary creams for home care use during facial treatment plans and for skincare maintenance. 

Apothecary Blend Salt Soak 

Soaks are available for clients.  We blend additives based on your primary goal for home use.  We recommend these at home products after massage or body treatments.
