Gua Sha Facial Massage
Gua Sha (scraping device) and acupressure therapy have been traditionally used in TCM for thousands of years. The ancient art of healing in TCM believes that to be in good health the vital life force (QI) must be in balance, similarly to homeostasis. When there’s a blockage of QI (or stagnation) this will manifest in the imbalance of a person’s overall health (emotional, physical, spiritual and mental).
Imbalanced QI can be displayed on a person’s skin or face, such as changes in texture, colour, complexion, impurity, puffiness, inflammation/breakouts, redness, pain and stiffness.
Gua Sha or scraping tools are used on the skin and tissue to stimulate them. When this is applied on the face, it will improve the appearance of the skin by increasing tone, elasticity, reduce fine lines and inflammation.
Additionally, it is believed that Jade has healing properties such as cooling, protection, TMC, suggested that Gua Sha and Jade’s cooling effect will help decrease puffiness of the skin on the face and help with lymphatic drainage as well as reduce headache, sinus pain and relieve muscle tension in the face.
It is believed to be a natural ‘Botox’ as not only just on the skin surface by giving a younger looking skin but it will promote youth and balance from within
