Gua Sha is a massage technique designed to relieve muscle tension in the face and stimulate circulation. This stone may be used to encourage lymphatic drainage which may act as an anti-inflamattory tool for anyone noticing facial bloating or fluid retention. Using your gua sha regularly may help break up fascia- the connective tissue that hugs your muscles. Fascia may sometimes become stuck and interfere with ideal blood flow for a healthy complexion.
Remember to always use your Gua Sha upwards and outwards- away from the centre of your face. You should never be stroking downwards, always up and out from the heart.
