Gua Sha, pronounced 'gwah shah', is an ancient traditional Chinese massage technique using crystal tools.
The practice of Facial Gua Sha is very relaxing and helps release tension in the facial muscles, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and additionally it helps create a more sculpted youthful appearance. At the same time Gua Sha stimulates the meridians, acupressure points and both the circulatory & the lymphatic body systems to help promote a healthier body and immune system.
Facial Gua Sha is where the health of your body & skin - both inside and out - begins, the root of not only feeling amazing but having beautiful glowing skin too.
Gua Sha is a game changer when it comes to the health and appearance of the skin. It has the most incredible effect on the microcirculation, the system just underneath the skin that transports oxygen & nutrients to the blood and removes toxins.
Practicing Gua Sha in the morning is brilliant in reducing morning puffiness & congestion, by gently encouraging the movements of lymphatic fluid, which can't flow by itself. It also releases tension in the facial muscles and soothes sore eyes & skin, making the complexion looking brighter & glowing.
