Gua Sha Stones - the exciting new holistic solution to facial rejuvenation!

Gua Sha-what?!

Historical records on gua sha go back to the Paleolithic Age. When people fell sick or became unconscious, hands or stones were used to rub parts of their body to help alleviate the symptoms of the disease. Gua sha has long been a folk therapy widely used by the ancient Chinese.
Gua Sha Stones as we know them now are tools used to relieve tension, sculpt skin, and increase circulation. The stones come in a variety of shapes and usually have a smaller edge that can be used near the eyes or nose.
And the benefits are seemingly endless! Regular use of a Gua Sha Stone in conjunction with your skin-care routine can have wonderful effects on your skin:
- Irons out frown lines in the eyebrow and forehead area
- Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose
- Lifts and tightens loose skin at the neck and jawline
- Improves radiance by removing stagnation in the skin
 - Improves skin firmness by increasing the rate of cell turnover
- Massaging the scalp helps meridians related to relaxation, reducing fatigue and hair rejuvenation
- Relieves muscle tension in the body
- Helps stimulate the lymphatic system to release toxins

3. Start gliding the Gua Sha from the center of the face (applying pressure) towards the ears. The flatter end of the tool is suitable for the cheek and forehead area whereas the opposite end is more suitable for the chin area.
4. The skin may appear slightly redder after 5 minutes. This is a good sign as it is an indication of circulation.
