The Gua Sha is a beauty tool used in the practice of applying pressure and scrape the skin to relieve pain and tension. This natural, alternative therapy has elevated the at-home self-care routines of many as more people discover the benefits of this highly affordable facial treatment. Check out everything you need to know about the Gua Sha facial and reason why it is the most loved in the skincare community.
Stimulate lymphatic drainage
The scraping motion performed during a Gua Sha treatment can be leveraged to pump lymph fluid that may be obstructed and building up in your lymph nodes. Regularly practicing this drainage process can also work hand-in-hand with your beauty routine—Gua Sha can reduce puffiness and a dull complexion.
Promote blood circulation
The continual gentle scraping of the face leads to a rapid rush of blood circulation in the treatment area, which promotes healing and improved skin texture. Over time, the regular practice of Gua Sha at home can help prevent wrinkles and eliminate fine lines.
Reduce sinus pressure
If you’ve struggled with chronic sinus issues, Gua Sha could be your new secret weapon for relief. Gentle massage probes the sinuses to break up congestion, and you can make this treatment more effective by slightly warming your Gua Sha stone.
