Due to natural variations in stone, every gua sha tool is unique in pattern and color.
Gua Sha has been practiced for thousands of years since the Tang Dynasty. Jade is known as the stone of youth and is associated with good fortune and wealth. It is soothing and nurturing, balancing and has naturally cooling properties.
Gua Sha massage using the Jade Gua Sha tool not only tones & gives a lifting effect, it gives you a natural radiant & healthy glow.
Gua Sha improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage at the surface of the skin which aids in removal of toxins and waste products. This is crucial in helping our skin for metabolism, cell renewal and also helps in hydration. This will in turn reduce toxin build up that causes brown pigmentation spots or yellow sallow skin complexion, giving us a healthy radiant glow.
Another benefit of Gua Sha massage is that it helps us to relieve muscle tension and relaxes our facial muscles. We may frown or clench our jaws unknowingly due to habits or stress. Over the long term muscle tension or tightness in the brows will lead to tension headaches, deep frown lines. Clenching our jaws may lead to jaw pain or enlargement of our jaw muscles which results in a square-looking jaw which is not so desirable for the female face shape.
