About Gua Sha
Gua sha is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in which a tool is used to repeated glide strokes over lubricated skin with a blunt tool that has a smooth edge—a gua sha tool.
Facial muscles store a lot of tension, which can create fine lines and wrinkles. Regular facial gua sha massage and facial rolling helps to increase stimulation, drain congested lymph nodes, rid the body of toxins, stimulate collagen production, help with sinus issues, and decrease under eye puffiness and dark circles.
Facial gua sha moves lymphatic fluids and improves blood circulation so your skin can function better. As if that weren't enough, it can also reduce puffiness and help your skin appear bright and more lifted!
