Intro To: Gua Sha

What is Gua Sha


Gua Sha is a facial technique derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine. Also known as jade scraping, it was first created as a body treatment, scraping to achieve redness to encourage the skin to heal itself. It has now been adapted for facial treatments, and very similar to jade rolling. Gua Sha promotes lymphatic drainage, helping eliminate bloating caused by fluid trapped in the skin. A jade scraper is used with short or long steady strokes along different areas of the face to target different concerns.
