Harmonise. Balance. Uplift.
Pronounced ‘gwa sa’, this is a scraping tool with ancient origins in Chinese traditions and culture. Found written into medical texts during the Ming Dynasty, Gua Sha has been woven intricately into Traditional Chinese medicine and society since this time. Gua translates as to scrape and Sha to sand, signalling the benefits we now recognise in mainstream culture of Gua Sha in helping to move lymphatic fluid just under the skin’s surface; enhancing lymph drainage, improving circulation and supporting cellular rejuvenation as it is gently, mindfully glided across the face.
Keep your gua sha chilled in the fridge to enhance cooling effect. Use directly on skin or apply a little face oil beforehand. Gently massage in small, circular movements in an outwords direction from the centre of face towards lymph nodes in jawline.
