THE GUA SHA BEAUTY RITUAL

Celebrate Yourself & the skin you are in ūüĖ§
with our heart-shaped Black Obsidian Gua Sha

New tool for an even more effective facial massage: meet our combed Gua Sha. This tool has been designed to smooth expression lines and stimulate collagen. The skin regains all its radiance. Works magic on fine lines and scar tissue.

The Heart Gua sha allows to lift and work in-depth the fascias of the face and neck.

The Gua Sha is a great addition to your daily beauty rituals. Gua sha is a traditional East Asian and Chinese technique used to invite well-being, circulation, and remove stagnant toxin build-up in the body. This face-sculpting tool is used to improve the skin's firmness and enhance the performance of facial oils/serums absorption while stimulating collagen production for firmer skin.

What is gua sha?

Gua sha is a traditional East Asian and Chinese technique used to invite well-being, circulation, and remove stagnant toxin build-up in the body. It is used gently on the skin of the face, and quite aggressively on the skin of the body. Gua means to scrape and Sha means sand, and this practice has been used for thousands of years. 

What does gua sha do?

For context, gua sha pre-dates acupuncture. The stroke pattern used awakens the meridian lines (lifeforce path) to activate the body‚Äôs natural healing abilities. For the skin, gua sha encourages collagen production (strength in cells). It sculpts and tones the face shape, allowing inflammation to drain and muscles to become free of tension ‚ÄĒ allowing them to do their supportive jobs properly. It also helps the skin return to its most radiant state as circulation is increased, sending nutrients to areas that may have been starved because of blockage.

Our choice of Black Obsidian stone

Black Obsidian is known as the 'Truth Stone" and is said to purge negative thoughts and emotions. Believed to provide powerful mental detoxification that shields and protects against negativity allowing the bearer to release disharmony, resentment, and anger.

Regular use of the Gua Sha may improve skin elasticity and skin smoothness while reducing muscle tension. Black Obsidian is forged from the force of hot volcanic lava submerged in the sea. A solid smooth black stone is said to be a type of volcanic glass.

This ancient technique has experienced a revival as an amazingly effective Facial  & Body sculpting method to improve the appearance and texture of the skin.

Most practitioners agree that consistent use of the tool helps improve microcirculation, skin toning, and smoothness. The Gua sha method effectively works at increasing blood flow beneath the skin.

*We recommend using one of our oil-based serums to begin with, or our cleansing oil. This will aid absorption and enhance the effects of your serum or oil. 

Celebrate Yourself & the skin you are in ūüĖ§

  • Made with hand-carved¬†and polished Black Obsidian Crystal
  • Carries nutrient-rich and oxygenated blood (food for the cells) to the skin and tissues

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.  

You will receive the Gua Sha Sequence Ritual Postcard with each order***.

Key tips to make the most of your practice:

+ I 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.

CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR FACIAL GUA SHA

Do not do gua sha on fresh botox. Talk to the provider who injected it to find out how soon you can safely implement facial massage.

Do not do gua sha on top of injected fillers in the face.

So glad I bought this

I'm loving this Gua Sha. I've been using it once or twice per day and it feels so nice. I can't tell how it's working, but my face always seems less ¬ępuffed¬Ľ after I used it. To be honest I don't know if I could get the same result using my hands, maybe, but the texture of the stone just feels so nice. Super happy!
