The Secret to Success:

Transform Your Clients, Transform Your Practice

These are useless

A Gua sha tool is just a tool.
It's nothing without the right knowledge.

A Gua sha tool can either give you false expectations, or change your life.

In my first Gua sha book I talked about when I was an apprentice craftsman in Japan. 🗾

I told how intricately made chess pieces which were carved from thousand-year-old trunks🌳While they were beautiful on their own, their true significance emerged when placed on a chessboard alongside other pieces.

The same principle applies to a Gua sha tool.

It's just a piece of stone or metal or plastic or whatever.

It's only when you see it glide over the surface of your skin like a ship sailing in the wind that you see what it does. ⛵ And only when that ship is navigating the ocean of skin with precision and purpose do you truly understand the tool. 

That's the most precious commodity you can acquire. Unfortunately with Gua sha, good knowledge is a rare thing.


What distinguishes a thriving, successful practice from a stagnant one? It's the ability to deliver significant, transformative changes to clients – consistently. That's what engenders loyalty, sparks word-of-mouth recommendations, and drives your business forward.

Facial Gua sha isn't about Beauty,
it's about Life.

Commonly misconstrued as a mere commercialized beauty trend, the true essence of Facial Gua sha lies far beyond skin deep. It isn't about hiding imperfections or battling the inevitable process of aging.

Instead, it's an empowering journey of unlocking one's inherent potential.

Imagine a garden of flowers, each unique and beautiful in their way. With appropriate care and nurturing, these flowers grow and bloom into their fullest expression, displaying their vibrancy for the world to admire. This mirrors what Facial Gua sha does for us – it nurtures our face, helping us blossom into our most radiant selves, inside and out.

Facial Gua sha isn't merely about achieving an ideal of perfection; it's about enhancing our unique beauty.

Anything less than this is both to misunderstand what you are doing and to fail to see the real meaning of beauty. 👈
These are useless


...Most Practitioners fail to understand Facial Gua sha.

It's disheartening to witness numerous skilled individuals being led astray, repeatedly making the same mistakes.

They embrace a shallow interpretation of Facial Gua sha and beauty, completely detached from its ancient Chinese origins. Their focus centers on Instagram marketing and flashy tools, disregarding the wealth of knowledge and technique necessary to significantly impact people's beauty and health.

Consequently, they fail to deliver the transformative changes their clients deserve.

Does This Sound Familiar?

I have fancy tools and expensive oils but you don't actually know how facial Gua sha works.

I lack confidence when explaining the theory behind facial Gua sha.

I struggle to find the balance between holistic principles and evidence-based research.

I want to use Gua sha to enhance your treatments but don't know where to start.

My treatments are not consistently effective and your results aren't reliable.

I'm questioning if my technique is  "good enough".


+20 Years of Research & Clinical Experience

But who on Earth am I?


Hi, my name is Clive Witham!

Here are some fun facts about me:

  • I'm a specialist and only teach one thing: Gua sha. Nothing else.

  • I was once a flying fish fisherman on the Japanese island of Yakushima in the East China Sea.

  • I developed Ecology in Motion Facial Gua sha over a decade.

  • My house is deep in a Northern Spanish forest with wild boars roaming around it.

  • I qualified as an acupuncturist 22 years ago.

  • My Facial and Body Gua sha research was done in my chronic illness clinic in North Africa (for 10 years).

  • I have never taken a course on Gua sha. All of my books and knowledge have been applied by practical experience. This is why what I have is unique. 

  • I have a world vision of Gua sha which is slowly becoming reality (We started a non-profit Gua sha program in Sri Lanka last year).
