Everything You Need To Know About Gua Sha Facial Massage

Gua Sha is fast becoming a buzzword in the beauty industry.

But this is not just a trend - gua sha and our daily rituals have been around for hundreds of years originating in Ancient China. 

Gua means 'scrape' and Sha means 'petechiae' (tiny, flat red, purple spots) in Chinese, and it began as a full body treatment not just for the face. 

The key point is to scrape the skin (commonly the upper back) to invigorate blood flow, release heat-toxins, stimulate lymphatic drainage, activate various points of the body, and bring helpful cells to the area by stimulating an immune response.

This simple self-massage technique stimulates the dermis to support collagen and elastin production and releases tension to relax facial muscles.

It has been shown in studies to exponentially increase circulation and aid lymphatic flow, release congestion and soothe sore eyes and skin, resulting in a brighter, healthier, radiant complexion - the perfect beauty tool.
