Gua Sha is a skincare tool used for deep facial and body massage. Massage with Jade or Rose Quartz Gua Sha has been used in China since ancient times.
Facial massage with Gua Sha can relax facial muscles, stimulate collagen production, increase blood circulation and lymphatic flow. Deep facial massage with crystal Gua Sha releases tension, congestion, soothes, and rejuvenates the skin.
Using your Gua Sha tool for a facial massage once or twice per day is perfect for enjoying its benefits thoroughly. There are various shapes of Gua Sha tools; smaller shapes are for smaller areas around the eyes and mouth. Bigger Gua Sha tools are used for cheeks, forehead, neck, and other body parts.
Facial massage specialists recommend scraping each area 5-10 times only, to prevent damaging the skin or causing inflammation. Also, the skin around the eye is thin and sensitive, so specialists recommend scraping it only twice a week. Those who have sensitive skin should not massage their face with this tool too often. For those who have irritable, sensitive skin we recommend using Gua Sha tools made of crystals with a cooling, soothing energy.
