What is Facial Gua Sha?
The OG of toning and lifting skin. Before electrical modalities, lasers and cosmetic surgery there was Gua Sha, a traditional healing technique of East Asian medicine.
Sometimes called ‘coining, spooning or scraping. Facial Gua uses lighter, gentler strokes, which have multiple anti-aging benefits as well as health benefits. This long used medical East Asian tool aids in releasing, reducing, toning and sculpting facial tissues and calming tension within the skin on a deeper level.
Benefits of Facial Gua Sha
Release Toxins - Gua Sha breaks down stagnation and releases toxins.
Lymphatic Function - One of the biggest health benefits of gua sha is how effective it can be to getting lymphs moving. There are a number of health benefits to getting the lymphs to circulate freely, including healthier skin and immune system.
Puffiness - one reason for puffiness in the face is fluid retention, caused by poor lymphatic function. Correcting this is key to reducing puffiness while rejuvenating skin cells and helping the skin to feel refreshed. In other words, this is one of the pathways to a healthier glow.
Reduces Inflammation - Inflammation is caused by a poor diet, too much alcohol, illness, and the one thing that makes it hard to reduce inflammation, lack of movement. This is why many people have puffy eyes in the morning. With gentle pressure, in the correct directions, facial gua sha encourage the lymphatic fluid to move along its pathways and drain into the body.
Toning - Because of the increased circulation, the skin will be brighter and more toned and eases facial muscle tension.
Reduces Wrinkles - Gua Sha reduces wrinkles when the lymphs are moved, circulation is increased, and the underlying tissue is smoothed.
