FREE US SHIPPING. NEW COLLECTION: IMPERIAL JADE DELUXE KIT
Introduced to us from traditional Chinese medicine, Gua Sha is a scraping method, at the intersection between jade rolling and massage. The most commonly used is rose quartz or flat jade stone, but it comes in many shapes, sizes, and materials.
Gua Sha has been traditionally used on the body to help reduce inflammation and soothe muscles. Sweeping this stone on your skin stimulates blood circulation, elastin, and collagen and could reduce cellulite'scellulite's appearance. Doing this massage at night can also help your sleep as it puts your muscles and body in a very relaxed state.
The Gua Sha can be used both in the shower or bath or on dry skin. But there are a few essential steps to follow.
Starting with the chest area, use the Gua Sha to massage start at the center and move the stone outward. You would typically do this 8-16 times until a redness would appear. Moving towards your back, start at the top of your neck and scrape down your shoulders. Lastly, massage the back of your shoulders with downwards movement towards your arms and over your shoulder blades. Take your time and enjoy!
