Improve Lymphatic Drainage and Restore Natural Radiant Glow
Gua sha (“刮痧”) is the practice of using a smooth-edged tool to relieve pain, tension and aches using Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) techniques.
The natural healing technique of gua sha works by improving the blood circulation and lymphatic drainage of the treated area. Practitioners of TCM believe that undergoing the treatment releases blood stasis within stiff, tired muscles to promote blood flow to the treated areas, promoting cellular repair and collagen regeneration.
Facial gua sha for skin rejuvenation
Facial gua sha is a massage technique designed to promote blood circulation, improve lymphatic drainage and release tension in the muscles of the face. In addition, it loosens the connective tissues and muscles that may prevent optimal blood circulation.
The application of gua sha technique on the face requires an experienced therapist to locate the meridian channels on the face and neck and use short, decisive strokes to gently apply pressure and massage to activate the meridian points.
By stimulating these facial pressure points, the massage aims to circulate sluggish blood flow that can cause puffiness, inflammation and dull skin. If done regularly, facial gua sha can result in brighter, firmer skin with more pronounced and lifted contours on your cheekbones, jawline and jowls.
Will my face become red after facial gua sha?
Facial gua sha is typically not painful, but some people may experience some discomfort when the tool is applied on bony areas such as the forehead.
When performed properly, your face should be slightly flushed as the treatment promotes blood circulation. In some cases, you may get some red bruises as tiny blood vessels near the skin surface are broken. Such bruises may take a few days or a week to heal.
How often do I need to undergo facial gua sha?
For optimal result, you should undergo the facial treatment at least once a month.
