The Gua Sha finds its origins in traditional Chinese medicine, with medical records dating back to the Paleolithic Age siting its use in massage therapy. Originally, when people fell sick or became unconscious, stones were used to rub parts of their body to alleviate symptoms, activating blood circulation and preventing blood stasis. The facial benefits of the Gua Sha were found much, much later. When the same action is applied to the face (upward + outward strokes), the face appears rejuvenated. The repeated stone strokes bring an influx of blood flow and stimulate lymphatic drainage that eliminates puffiness and inflammation, giving the face a fresh, healthy, naturally contoured look.
As a face gua sha: Use the gua sha edges of the tool over clean skin daily for 3 - 5 minutes. Massage from the center of your face by your nose outward towards cheeks. Then proceed to massage down your chin and up your forehead. For best results, apply your favorite treatments to the skin first, then massage them in using your Gua Sha.
As a body gua sha: Using the gua sha edges of your tool, massage anywhere on your body by “scraping” skin with firm pressure to help relieve tight muscles. For best results, apply your favorite oil to the skin first, then massage in using your Gua Sha.
