Gua Sha tools are pressed on the face in gentle, upward strokes. Gua Sha facials stimulate the fascia, a thin casing of connective tissue that's rich in collagen fibers. The practice helps release blockages in the facial muscles to promote optimal circulation, toxin release, and banish bloat. The lymphatic system is encouraged to flush out toxins from the face to help breathe new life into the skin. Some even consider it a viable (needle-free) alternative to Botox.
After a Gua Sha facial, most people notice a clear, more toned complexion. The skin feels recharged, and a glowy hue will soon emerge. After you relieve tension in the face, jaw, and neck muscles, you'll notice a major improvement in your skin. When circulation increases and your chi is flowing well, you look and feel your best.
