What is Gua Sha?

Guasha is a traditional Chinese therapy that involves applying pressure to specific areas of your body. In a practice similar to acupressure, practitioners use their fingers or an acupuncture stick to move slowly and continuously along your body. Guasha can be done on any part of your body and for any reason, but it’s most commonly performed as a detoxification treatment or as a way to reduce inflammation in different parts of your body. Using a gua sha facial tool allows you to gently and effectively move lymph from underneath the skin, reducing puffiness and inflammation, and relieving tension.  As the muscles of the face are much thinner, avoid applying too much pressure.

The benefits of using it regularly

Using a stroking motion on your skin stimulates blood flow and promotes collagen growth. With time, guasha has been shown to result in reduced fine lines and wrinkles, as well as even skin tone for an overall healthier complexion. The majority of users agree that these benefits can remain long after use is discontinued. C

  • Start from the centre of your forehead and move down the left side of your face using the smooth long edge of body Gua Sha three or four time, in one motion, from your forehead to your cheek to your jaw and down your neck to your collarbone. To the right, repeat. By doing this, you can remove any extra lymphatic fluid from your face and neck.
