Jade Gua Sha
Eastern style botox? We’re totally in!
Facial Gua Sha comes from an ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine healing technique from which it takes its name: Gua Sha. Gua stays for “scratching” and Sha stays for “Heat”. TCM believes that inflammations, tensions and different related health problems can be supported and healed by scratching some specific areas of our bodies with a flat stone or tool in order to bring out and release heat.
When applied to beauty, this massage technique deeply relaxes facial muscles while stimulating both blood and lymphatic flow. This stimulation immediately results into a more relaxed appearance. It instantly de-puffs and tones skin while promoting the healthiest glow. And this is how it’s gained the name of “Eastern botox”!
Gua Sha has been the best kept beauty secret for generations of Chinese Empresses and has first caught the attention of Western culture during the Seventies, before its booming in the last few years.
Facial Gua Sha is an authentic beauty inside out ritual that acts as a natural antiageing treatment. It is a holistic treatment many lean on to clarify their complexion, decrease dryness and acne and oiliness by increasing blood circulation. Gua sha can help address the root of aging that topical products cannot; it increases circulation, decreases muscle tension, and helps move the lymphatic fluid while giving an almost immediate lift and radiant glow.
The ergonomic design was hand carved to adapt to the shape and contours of the face used to perform a relaxing decongesting facial massage. This little unique tool is for professional or at home use and is an excellent addition to any routine to help making facial features appear more youthful and well rested.
