WHAT IS GUA SHA
The name gua sha — pronounced gwahshah — comes from the Chinese word for scraping. It may also be called skin scraping, spooning, or coining.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, qi or chi is energy that flows through the body. Many people believe that a person’s qi must be balanced and flow freely to ensure their health and wellbeing. People also believe that qi can become blocked, causing pain or tension in the muscles and joints.
Gua sha aims to move this blocked energy to relieve aches or stiffness.
THE KANSA GUA SHA
Like the metal used for sacred Tibetan bells and gongs, Kansa bronze is highly resonant. As Kansa bronze material is much harder than crystal stones, this tool is perfect for also using for your face massage ritual.
Note: Expect natural variations in the stones. Each Gua Sha will be unique in colour and pattern. The smoothness of the edges is the primary function of the Gua Sha we inspect each stone to ensure the edge is not rough or sharp. It is normal for natural indentations to be present which are characteristic of natural crystal stone and do not adversely affect its use or performance.
HOW TO USE A GUA SHA?
+ We suggest sweeping each area at a minimum three times. For a longer practice, sweep up to 10 times.
+ Keep your tool almost flat to your skin (about 15 degrees) rather than having the edge of the tool at 90 degrees to your skin.
+ When your tool starts to drag or pull on your skin, add a little more oil for better slip.
+ Have fun experimenting with which side and shape of the tool best fits with your face.
