What is a Gua Sha Facial?

Monday, May 13, 2019 - 7:03am

Gua sha is a traditional Chinese medicine scraping release massage technique used gently on the skin of the face with a flat jade or rose quartz stone. The gua sha stone is pulled along distinct meridian paths on the face and neck to relieve tension in the muscles, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, restore firmness and elasticity, promote a brighter complexion, improve lymphatic drainage, decrease puffiness and increase product absorption.

Inflexible fascia, muscle tension, and stagnant lymph are three primary causes for aging which clinical skin care products do not address. This isn’t a quick fix as results are cumulative, which means consistent use is required to reap the rewards. Facial gua sha is an excellent addition to your skincare routine. Ready to give it a try?
