We LOVE Facial Gua Sha (pronounced gwa sha) ! This simple tool can absolutely help you find your glow!
Our custom created Qi Facial Gua Sha board is a great way to sculpt and rejuvenate the skin. It can help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, de-puff and detox the face, move stagnant lymph, tone and lift, all while bringing more blood flow and nutrients to the face, so your face looks and feels fantastic.
Facial gua sha involves very gentle scraping/sliding of the gua sha tool over specific areas of the face in upward strokes. This can relax tight or tense muscles and promote tissue drainage. This is a safe, painless and simple technique used to stimulate all of the tissues of the face and neck.
For best results, maintain a consistent practice. It can be used daily or just a few times a week, whatever fits into your schedule. Each gua sha session can last a few minutes up to 10 minutes, depending on how much time you have on any given day.
The Qi Gua Sha board is made from Bian stone, which is different to most gua sha boards on the market. Bian stone has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The unique properties of the stone allow heat to be stored in the stone, which can create a calming and soothing effect on the skin. Bian stone contains over 40 different minerals and is said to emit far infrared rays and negative ions, for further healing benefits. From a stone medicine standpoint, it is said to balance the energy of the body.
This is a natural product made from stone and is breakable so be careful with it, and don’t drop it.
