Facial Gua Sha comes from an ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine technique to stimulate circulation and energy within the skin and tissues of the body. It is useful for encouraging lymphatic flow and flushing of waste fluids to encouraging repair. Results from a Gua Sha session include a firmer appearance and healthy glow to skin. Long term practice of this technique can help skin resist sagging.

Gua Sha facials, though, are usually gentler. The best way to Gua Sha is to first wash the face and neck or spritz with a hydrating toner mist, and then smooth on a generous amount of a lubricating serum for great glide. Then select the perfect curve in the implement to hug the area you are rubbing. Be sure to move the tool upward and outward to effectively sculpt and smooth the skin.
Begin with the base of the neck and glide upward in long, slow swipes until the whole neck is scraped. Then move to the jaw, the cheeks, the eye area, the forehead, the nose, and the lips, always gliding up and outward. With 60 Traditional Chinese Medicine meridian points on the face, a Gua Sha facial is thought of as meridian massage.
Quartz stones are prismatic crystals of silicon and oxygen compressed by geologic forces into hardened, sparkling light. Throughout history, the innate enchanting and reflective colors of quartz stones have attracted healers and humans because quartz naturally amplifies energy and seems to transpose its own light onto the human receiver.
Quartz Gua Sha Care: Wash the stone with hot water and a little lather from mild soap, or a little dash of gentle shampoo and dry it thoroughly. Store it in the muslin bag in a protected location.
