The Gua Sha is used for a relaxing and beneficial massage on both the face and body. Using the Gua Sha will assist with the penetration of skincare products, the elimination of toxins and stimulate circulation for smoother, tighter and firmer skin.
We recommend combining the technique with our 100% Pure Australian Balance Oil or 100% Pure Australian Brighten Oil.
Our Gua Sha are made from crystal quartz. We chose crystal quartz because it is prized as a healing stone. Each Gua Sha piece is unique and will vary in colour and size. The Gua Sha must be handled with care. If you drop the Gua Sha, even from a small distance, you will crack or break it.
Gua Sha is a non-invasive treatment suitable for all skin types however, if you are suffering from inflammation to the skin or your skin is broken we do not recommend using the technique.
The Gua Sha can be used for both the face and body. Always apply an oil or serum to your body before using the Gua Sha - never use it on bare skin. We recommend that you are gentle; using light pressure to reduce puffiness and firmer pressure to relax muscles, but never so firm that it hurts or you bruise your skin. The pressure does cause blood to circulate and rise to the surface so your skin will be red after the treatment. Always stroke in one direction, not back and forth.
Jawline: Using the dipped side, sweep from the chin along the jawline in an upward motion towards the ears.
Neck: Using the straight side, gently press at the top of the neck, under the jaw and move in a downwards motion towards the collar bone.
Cheeks: Using the straight side, gently press from the centre of the face and work outwards towards the ears. Around the eye area you can use the dipped side.
Brow: Using the straight side, gently sweep across the brow line starting from the centre and working outwards.
Forehead: Using the straight side, gently sweep in an upward motion towards the hairline.
For each area, repeat the stroke 3 to 5 times.
The technique is beneficial all over the body. Here we are focussing on the legs and bum. Divide the area you are treating into 3 to 4 sections and start at the top moving in a downward motion, repeating each stroke approximately 10 times. Firmer pressure can be used on the body, particularly on any areas where you have cellulite, but there should be no pain.
