Gua Sha Natural Crystal Face and Body Tool
Gua Sha tools are rounded body massage tools, traditionally made from gemstones such as jade and rose quartz. 'Gua' means to rub and 'sha' is a description of the redness left on the surface of the skin after their use.
They are used on the body and increase circulation by increasing blood flow to the surface of the skin. They aid the lymphatic system by helping disperse toxins and are said to improve the appearance of cellulite. Gua Sha tools can also be used to help relieve pain and tension.
GUA SHA INSTRUCTIONS
Use gently on the face to increase circulation
Apply even pressure to the edge of the tool and stroke or 'scrape' across the skin.
This can generally be repeated about 8 times.
Note: This practice shouldn't be painful but please be aware applying heavier pressure may cause bruising known as petechiae or sha so start with a light stroke to get a gauge on what is tolerable for you and discontinue the practice if it causes you discomfort.
We recommend keeping your Gua Sha in the fridge to keep it super-cold—this is the ultimate trick for maximum de-puffing in the morning.
How to clean:
- The best way to clean your Gua Sha is with warm water and any gentle soap of your choice using a soft cloth. Be sure to wipe it dry and store it in a dry place.
