Gua sha, an ancient Chinese healing technique, is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. Gua sha is intended to address stagnant energy, called chi.
Gua Sha for the face and neck is called the Eastern Botox (or Eastern Facelift) for a reason. This TCM (or Traditional Chinese medicine) treatment, when applied to the face, has the following effects:
As the skin is scraped, the layers of the skin are stimulated. Stagnant lymph that causes puffiness is moved and cleared out of the system. Toxins are also released resulting in a clearer complexion. And finally, the massaging action relaxes tense muscles from which wrinkles are born.
How to use: You need to use only LIGHT pressure. Make light scraping motions will be upwards
Now more than ever, self-care and skincare seem to go hand in hand! Gua Sha (pronounced gwa sha) is an ancient self-care practice used in traditional Chinese Medicine in which a tool, usually made from Jade or Rose Quartz is scraped across the skin to redirect energy flow, by reducing inflammation, increasing blood flow and stimulating the lymphatic system to promote healing in the body. It’s a simple but rigorous technique that has been used for centuries to treat ailments such as fever, muscle pain and tension, inflammation, chronic coughs, sinusitis and migraines.
FACTS: Jade is a protective stone and has a natural composition that transmits heat and promotes circulation. Energetically, it helps balance the body and mind. It removes toxins, rebinds skeletal and muscular systems, and improves the flow of Qi (life force).
Rose Quartz is a stone of the heart, a Crystal of Unconditional Love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort.
