- What is Guasha ? -
Gua Sha is a Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy that was used in ancient times to treat diseases. It literally means “scrapping” illnesses from stagnant energy.
Traditional Gua Sha is performed in areas of the body such as the back, neck, hands and feet. The therapy releases congested energy by increasing blood flow and stimulating the lymphatic system.
Over time, a softer version of Gua Sha developed which is intended for the face.
How to use ?
Your Guasha experience should be one of calmness, and self-love.
1- First, take a couple deep breaths. Relax your shoulders, soften your face.
If you have time, you could make yourself a nice cup of herbal tea.
Create a slow, mindful ritual for yourself.
2- Clean your face, chest and neck well.
3- Apply an oil or balm to the face, neck and chest and gently rub it into the skin.
4- Use your Guasha tool following our face map, with a gentle pressure.
I recommend the Blue Lotus Oil from Rituals Oils.
