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 believe that a person’s Qi must be balanced and flow freely to ensure their health and well-being. 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.
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 border 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 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.
+ We suggest sweeping each area a minimum of 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.
