Gua Sha (“Gwa-Sa”) is a traditional Chinese technique used to stimulate the lymphatic system and relax muscles. It has a wealth of benefits, including clearer and smoother skin, a reduction in puffiness and a brighter, more glowing complexion. The Gua Sha tool is stroked gently along the skin in a sweeping outward/upward motion on the face. Practicing Gua Sha on your face helps to release lymphatic fluid and the impurities it may contain, eliminating toxins, improving circulation, and activating the skin’s natural ability to heal itself. Fewer toxins and better circulation lead to clearer, nourished, glowing skin. Gua Sha massage can also relieve tension in the muscles of the face, reducing lines and freeing adhesions which interfere with proper fluid flow.
