Gua Sha Massage FAQ's

Gua Sha

In this month's September Box we are including a Rose Quartz Gua Sha Massage Stone, which is a luxurious facial massage tool that not only feels amazing, but when used regularly, has a huge list of benefits! 

Used for centuries in traditional Chinese Medicine, Gua Sha (pronounced gwa-sha) is a treatment to; relax the muscles, shift puffiness, increase collagen, boost circulation and increase energy and blood flow for radiant, plumper skin.

Translated, Gua means press or stroke, and Sha refers to a rash or redness, as traditional Chinese Therapists use the stone for deep tissue massage which causes red skin. This can have great benefits for the body, but the face requires only gentle massaging.

Why Rose Quartz 
Not just used for its beauty, Rose Quartz is known as a healing crystal and the stone of unconditional love. It is said to emit strong vibrations of love and support emotional healing, which is the perfect accompaniment to your self-care and self-love regimen. The stone is also cool to the touch, which helps reduce puffiness. You can even store your stone in the fridge for an extra soothing, refreshing massage.

How do I use it?

To use, start with cleaning your face, hands and stone. Make sure your skin is well lubricated to prevent tugging - facial oil is best. Follow the diagram and steps below. 
You can also use the Gua Sha on the body and scalp, in the shower or with oil, (never dry), simply stroke in one direction on any area you want to massage or to help reduce cellulite.

STEP 1 - Cleanse thoroughly, moisturize and then follow up with a facial oil to ensure an easy glide.

STEP 2 - Angle the Gua Sha tool as close to parallel with your skin (almost flat) at a 15-20° angle and gently sweep the tool in the desired direction.
(Not back and forth.)

STEP 3 - Follow the diagram(below), starting with 1 through to 9. Start
off with each move three times - you can build up to more once
you learn your skin’s tolerance. Do not exceed 10 strokes per
area.

TIP - Keep one finger firmly in place as an anchor to provide
tension in the opposite direction.
