The Ultimate Guide to Gua Sha Techniques for Ageless Beauty
Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese healing technique in which a smooth flat tool is used to scrap the skin in order to boost blood, oxygen, and Qi circulation. In Oriental medicine, Qi (Chi), refers to the the vital energy that circulates through the body.
A healthy blood & Qi circulation allows your body to deliver, receive and absorb the necessary nutrients to thrive, while a dysfunctional circulation could lead to a range of health problems, including fatigue, muscle weakness, acne, and many other conditions. The true essence behind Gua Sha is either to prevent or support changes in the blood flow in the muscles and tissues of the face and body.
For our skin, a lack of good blood circulation can lead to dryness, itchiness, paleness, inflammation, breakouts, a slower healing rate for wounds and blemishes, and it can inhibit our waste removal system.
In the context of skincare, Gua Sha is believed to help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles, promote the growth of new skin cells, relieve facial muscle tension, reduce clogged pores, control acne, and enhance the ability of the skin to absorb skincare products.
