Gua sha is a traditional healing method that has been used in China for thousands of years. The words Gua Sha are derived from the Chinese words to rub or scrape and Sha -red/blood. On the body, the scraping motion encourages the blood to rise to the surface of the skin and can account for the redness and inflammation on the body or a blush on the face.

The motion of the stones across the face triggers the skin’s metabolic healing process, accelerates collagen production, increases blood circulation, encourages lymphatic drainage and rejuvenates tired skin. 

Once you’ve cleansed your skin, apply a light oil and simply follow the below steps:

  1. Hold your gua sha with the curved side to your face. Gently glide it gently up and out, starting with the neck. Make sure you’re stroking down the neck, never upwards, to drain fluid.
  2. Next move onto your jawline, chin and around the mouth, stroking the skin between three and five times per area. Always take short strokes in just one direction, not back and forth. If you want to reduce puffiness, work lightly, then more firmly, to relax muscles.
  3. Pressing the tool flat to the skin, next delicately stroke under the eyes or over any redness, to soothe and de-puff.
  4. Finally, work the tool in small horizontal strokes over the brow bone to lift, or hold and press upwards between the brows to release tension.

How A Gua Sha Helps Different Areas Of Your Face

Neck – Gentle downward strokes increase circulation, lift and tone skin.

Jawline, cheeks and chin – Strokes from the inside of your face out lift your complexion whilst firming up your skin.

Nose – Delicate short strokes relieve puffiness.

Eyes – Strokes under the eyes reduce lines and dark circles, whilst also soothing, de-puffing and reducing redness.

Forehead – Horizontal strokes over the brow bone to smooth wrinkles, lift skin and release tension.


    Gua Sha is slow in movement and the gentle touch is deeply relaxing, instantly activating our parasympathetic (relaxed) nervous state. When we’re feeling grounded in our bodies and calm through our mind, we can handle emotional issues or obstacles that come our way more easily with self awareness and ease. Using Gua Sha as a medium to tune in to ourselves more fully transforms this cosmetic treatment into a truly stress relieving and a grounding ritual.
    We hold so much tension in our face and neck. Using deep pressure with a Gua Sha stone can really get into sticky knotted areas to release held muscular tension, thus allowing muscles to do their supportive jobs properly. It can also be a great tool for TMJ and headache sufferers as relaxing our facial muscles regularly also prevents and fades light expression lines.
    Gua Sha can be used to clear blockages in meridian channels, which connect our organs together and transport both blood and chi (life force). Our channels need to be clear in order to work harmoniously and for chi to flow well throughout the body. If an organ is not functioning properly, the channel could be blocked – and vice versa. We can clear the channel of blockages by scraping the Gua Sha tool along it. Gua Sha imparts a truly holistic effect on the body. This manual movement stimulates our lymphatic system, helping our organs function optimally by breaking up stagnation, flowing debris and toxins within the body for easier expulsion.
    The unique edges of various Gua Sha stones work perfectly to lift, sculpt and tighten the skin. Regular use can prevent the signs of aging such as sagging, dull and wrinkled skin. Since Gua Sha helps stimulate circulation, the technique itself oxygenates and carries nutrients to the skin cells. The increased blood flow resulting from Gua Sha contributes to a more lively, plumped up and youthful appearance.
    No flow, no glow! Gua Sha increases circulation and improves lymphatic function, resulting in a naturally dewy, glowing complexion. The action of gently scraping the Gua Sha tool across the skin aids in serum/moisturizer product penetration, so those juicy phytonutrients go deeper into the layers of skin to feed us even more hydration. Gua Sha can also be used to prevent and clear acne, decongesting the skin and lessening inflammation.
