As more of us unsubscribe from injectables, look for chemical-free acne treatments, and aim to reduce inflammation, gua sha and facial massage have started to rise as highly sought-after practices in the holistic beauty world. So, there’s a high probability you’ve come across today’s podcast guest, Britta Plug. Perhaps you subscribe to her incredible Instagram video tutorials or own one of her wildly popular Wildling gua sha devices?
If you’re not familiar with Britta, she is a licensed holistic esthetician and health coach with over 17 years of experience. Deemed by some as “The Queen of Holistic Beauty,” she began combining the two disciplines after noticing the undeniable connection between beauty and wellness.
Much of her dedication to her craft comes from her own health journey with Hashimoto’s disease and Epstein-Barr virus. Dealing with these chronic conditions left her with the desire to empower all women to joyously take their wellness transformation into their own hands. Today, she is the co-founder of the aforementioned gua sha brand, Wildling, as well as the founder and lead educator at the Green Beauty Academy and Sovereign Beauty. She holds an international skin care diploma (CIDESCO), and numerous professional certifications in Ayurvedic face lifting, manual lymph drainage, facial reflexology, and sculptural face lifting.
If you’ve been looking to try, hone, or deepen your gua sha technique, this episode is definitely for you. Britta walks us through practices we can all adopt that enhance not just our skin, but our self-compassion and our wellbeing. She also chats to us about the risks associated with Botox and gives us tools to make empowered choices. Overall, this episode saw us walk away with a deeper understanding of our relationship with our skin, the collective conditioning around ageing, and generally inspired to enhance our own unique radiance. Glow up here.
