Gua means 'scrape' and Sha means 'petechiae' (tiny, flat red, purple spots) in Chinese. Gua Sha began as a full body treatment—which most people don't realise since facial techniques have recently become popular. The key point is to scrape the skin (commonly the upper back) to invigorate blood flow, release heat-toxins, stimulate lymphatic drainage, activate various points of the body, and bring helpful cells to the area by stimulating an immune response. Gua Sha is particularly helpful for lymphatic drainage in our face because we don't move the muscles in our face all that much. The intentional movements of a facial massage will help move the lymph through the system and result in a more toned and sculpted appearance.
Face gua sha massage technique
Gua Sha is especially effective at relieving muscular tension and breaking down fascia adhesions—perfect for those with tight muscles, sluggish circulation, and tech necks. As facial therapy, it helps de-puff, stimulate microcirculation, and promote collagen production. The key to Gua Sha is consistency.
Body gua sha massage technique
The indentations we see in subcutaneous tissue (fat) are caused by fibrous fascial bands that connects the skin to the deeper musculature structures below. The western body has a crisscross fascia pattern which is prone to the appearance of cellulite. By repeated deep gua sha massage the tight fascia bands can be released and the appearance of cellulite reduced. Gua sha massage also aids lymphatic drainage and improved skin texture with consistent use.
Organic Jojoba based face and body oils
Jojoba oil is the liquid extracted from the seeds of the Simmondsia chinensis plant. The natural oil is, in fact, an ester and it is very similar to the skins own senum. It’s packed with A, D and E vitamins, and it has an impressive ability to help your skin act like a healthier more moisterised version of its self.
Our lust worthy organic Jojoba based face and body oils will be available soon.
