What is gua sha?
Gua sha is a traditional Eastern Asian medicine technique that uses a series of tools to scrape or rub the skin in order to relieve blood stagnation, or stasis, which refers to when blood does not adequately reach all areas of the body. This lack of blood flow can cause symptoms, such as stiffness, swelling, tightness or pain. The overall goal of gua sha is to move a person’s qi (chi)—a vital energy that exists in the body, according to Chinese medicine—to release pain or other symptoms.
Gua Sha for the Face
Facial gua sha is known to stimulate circulation, produce collagen, decrease puffiness and inflammation, tighten skin, brighten complexion, release tension and shape facial muscles. This is done through the promotion of blood circulation and lymphatic movement.
These stones are made from jade and rose quartz stone to cool the sensation of irritated skin and shaped into a smooth edge. Oil (rosehips, jojoba, baobab, or your preference) is applied to the face before the practice begins, allowing the stone to glide smoothly and softly over the skin in long, slow strokes.
