HOW TO DO A GUA SHA FACIAL
Gua sha is a traditional Chinese medicinal treatment in which the skin is scraped with a smooth edged, blunt instrument in order to release toxins and stimulate new oxygenated blood flow to the area. It can be used to help relieve tension and pain, break down scar tissue and treat injured or sore muscles.
Gua sha tools are also used (in a much gentler way) on the face in skin care routines as facial massage tools.
