What is Gua Sha? Gua sha (pronounced gwah-shah). ‘Gua’ means scrape, and ‘Sha’ means sand. Gua sha is a traditional facial massage technique that uses gemstone tools to relieve tension in the muscles of the face, boost circulation, and encourage lymphatic flow and drainage for healthy, clear, more youthful looking skin. It's even been dubbed the "Eastern Facelift"! Gua Sha tools have traditionally been used in Chinese medicine to massage and scrape the entire body, with a closer attention to the neck and back.
**Sold as set of 2 mushroom stones
Our hand-crafted Natural Rose Quartz Mushrooms are uniquely shaped for giving a soothing, cooling effect on the eye area, face, neck, and back and are easy to use. Two stones allow you to massage both sides of your face at once, saving time. This makes integrating gua sha into your routine on a regular basis more practical, and the key to seeing the best results with gua sha massage is practicing it regularly (2-3 times a week).
Doing regular gua sha massages also gives way to a breath of calmness in your busy life, becomes a daily ritual, and an act of self-care, in which we are all striving for.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Gua sha facial massage should NOT be practiced by those with Botox or injectable fillers and used with caution by pregnant women as certain pressure points should not be stimulated during pregnancy.

HOW TO USE
Step 1: Your skin needs to be properly lubricated before beginning your gua sha facial massage so the tool glides easily over the skin. We recommend using our Kwa-Tua facial serum.
Step 2: Start with your neck, moving in downward strokes. Repeat each stroke 3-6 times before moving on.
Step 3: Move all the way around the neck to the sides of your spine and be sure to get up around your ears where there is a concentration of lymph nodes.
Step 4: After you have massaged your entire neck, it’s time to move on to your face. Start with your chin, moving from the middle of your face towards your ears. Repeat the process while moving up your face to your forehead.
Step 5: Finally, repeat the process in reverse: moving back down the face from the forehead to the chin, then down and around the neck again.
**Due to natural variations in stone, every Gua Sha tool is unique in pattern and color.
