EMPRESS NAME

One of the most important texts in Traditional Chinese Medicine is the Huang Di Nei Jing, The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine. We named our facial gua sha line after the female principal of the Yellow Emperor.

WHO ARE WE TO SHARE GUA SHA?

Wildling is founded by 3 non-Asian women. We share a deep respect for Traditional Chinese Medicine and are connected to its lineage via our education and professional training.

Wildling co-founder, Britta Plug, trained in the art of facial gua sha by acupuncturist Dr. Ping Zhang. She has completed training in Dr. Vodder’s Manual lymph drainage, connective tissue massage (through ASTECC), Ayurvedic face lifting (Mehta massage), Sculptural lifting massage, facial reflexology, and jade Tao 5 element facial method. She is also enrolled in ongoing studies in Qi gong, 5 elements, and Taoism. Britta has spent well over 1000 hours practicing facial gua sha on her clients.

Giving Back

We have discovered that only .6% of social equity dollars go to support the AAPI community. At Wildling, we support an ongoing initiative to plant a tree for every Empress Stone sold. Our intention is to nurture the Earth and benefit all of humanity. We have chosen to transition this initiative to directly support the AAPI community with a quarterly donation.
