Gua Sha is a healing massage technique from Traditional Chinese Medicine that can be used to lift, tone and tighten skin, increase the efficacy of your skincare, and for your skin to look refreshed and glowy.

The technique stems from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and involves the use of a skincare tool (like this one!) with a flat edge that can be used to press-stroke or scrape lubricated skin in one direction. This, according to the Chinese, moves qi (气) or energy around the body. In allopathic medical terms, this translates into improving circulation which releases stagnant blood and toxins. This movement allows for more blood and nutrient flow to stagnant areas, allowing for healing and rejuvenating tired skin.

Skin Benefits:

  • Plumper, smoother skin
  • Lifting
  • Toning
  • Reduces appearance of wrinkles
  • Glows you up

Practice guasha after you have cleansed and completed most of your routine, right after you apply a moisturizer or sleeping cream. Make sure that you apply enough cream so that your skin has enough "slip". You don't want your skin to catch and tug as that will damage it.

You can find more detailed instructions on how to do the exact scraping here.

This Guasha is made using fair trade procured green aventurine.

In crystal healing, green aventurine represents luck, abundance and happiness. It's also connected to issues of the heart and emotion, and is known as a stone of personal growth, to accept opportunities about learning about oneself and one's place in the universe.

Gentle Green Guasha

Love this tool, helps get my Vaccum Oil Cleanser or Bamboo Oil Cleanser to soak in deep down into my pores! Feels great cold and is a gentle massage. Has helped me de-stress so much!

Jaw(pain) breaker

I was a big fan of the crystal facial roller and wasn’t sure I also needed the guasha tool. After watching Adeline’s videos, I decided to treat myself. As a chronic jaw clencher and migraine sufferer, I can’t believe I’ve lived without this tool. In just a few minutes of massage, I can feel my jaw and neck muscles relaxing. I combine sweeping motions with more targeted massage on my most tense spots. The rounded corners provide many options for deep tissues massage around my temples, sinus, and jaw. I just gifted one to my SIL who grinds her teeth at night and I can’t wait to hear how it helps.

So soothing

I have been enjoying some extra pampering for my face with this beautiful guasha. I can tell a difference in my skin’s brightness and plumpness. It really helped relieve some of the tension that had builds up during the holidays. Can’t wait to “guasha along” with Adeline soon!

Guasha love

I've only recently added the Guasha tool to my routine and I love it. When I have a layer or two of serums and moisturizers on my face, the tool glides across my skin, helping it to absorb more yummy SB products and signaling to all the tense muscles in my face that it's okay to relax. I added a jade roller to my routine this past summer and am finding that the two tools complement one another: it feels so good to use a chilled roller (it lives in my fridge) around my eyes while the Guasha tool feels especially good on my neck and around my jaw. And it doesn't hurt that the Guasha tool is lovely and feels good in my hand.

Relief for fatiqued eyes!

I have eyes that get tired very easily and no amounts of eye drops can take away the fatigue, dryness and itchiness. But recently, I realise that I am relying less on the eye drops and the only change in my lifestyle is that I have been using the guasha tool to complement my routine! I love using the narrower end to trace and massage around my eye area, and really press down along the eye socket area. It always make me feel so relaxed and soothed. I believe it helped with better circulation and hence my eyes feel refreshed! I will definitely recommend this to everyone who experiences eye strain and need the relief!
