Let’s talk about some interesting history of “Gua Sha”. Gua Sha Facial is a natural physical facial service and used as a healing technique invented by the Chinese people in the long-term struggle against disease during the ancient times. Gua Sha is performed using gentle strokes to massage, manipulate and stimulate specific energy lines and points along the face. Which can help to promote healthy lymph flow by releasing toxins that have been stuck.
Gua Sha is a practice that involves moving a blunt, smooth instrument along specific energy lines to remove toxins from your lymphatic system.
What are the benefits of Gua Sha? This facial service needs to be done consistently, and it will help to improve the function of the skin which can actually help with many skin conditions. Such as, deep lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, rosacea, acne, acne scars, pigmentation, dark circles, puffiness. It retains the muscles of the face, relaxing them, strengthening, lifting and toning.

So, how does Gua Sha Work?
- Releasing and clearing toxic stagnant lymph and removing blockages and adhesions from the shoulders, neck and face.
- By creating space for movement, for flow, and therefore the skin is not able to function as it should.
- If there is no space for flow of oxygen, blood, Qi, lymph and nutrients, the skin starts to suffer.
How about Gua Sha for Dark Circles?
Dark Circles can cause by poor blood flow, lack of sleep, stress dehydration, dietary factors or alcohol. However, Gua Sha can help! It can help to depuff the areas and improve the appearance of dark circles over time.
The Important Tips for Gua Sha:
- Hydrate, drink lots of water before and after to help rid those toxins from the body.
- Prep your skin, after cleansing, apply a product that has some slip, like a facial oil or serum.
- Start with the neck, start opening the neck, from the neck in order to treat the face.
- Move to your face, move your way up the face and repeat with your under-eyes, eyelids, and forehead.
How to choose the Gua Sha Tools?
There are some Gua Sha Tools you can easily order online, those basic tools designed with dolphin shape, wing type. Those kinds of tools are popular and prevalent for a long time. It is broader than the wing type tool and hence is easy to grip. The firmer grip allows better digging into the muscles and tissue and is very useful for deep muscle massage. Bulky body parts and thicker flesh parts, like the glutes and thighs, demand an intense digging. The smaller versions of this tool are also great for the facial Gua Sha.
