A great addition to your self-care practice!
Gua Sha is one of the oldest practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine and helps to flush out toxins and treat congestion of the blood by vigorously rubbing on the skin to increase blood flow, helping to break down hardness in the facial muscles.
In essence, Gua Sha stimulates the lymphatic system and works on the external body to heal an internal imbalance, making your glow from within!
The process produces “Sha”, a distinctive reddening of the skin, which is a release of heat and inflammation, dampness and pain from the deeper levels of the body.
To use: The Gua Sha tool has a smooth edge and is firmly scraped against the oiled skin, along the meridian pathways. First, put on your favourite facial oil (we love rosehip or macadamia), and scrape the neck several times in a downward motions toward the chest, across the forehead and using an upward motion on the cheekbones. You can also use it on other parts of the body like legs, back, buttocks and arms. For a soothing effect, place in the freezer for 30 minutes before use.
