The name 'Gua Sha' comes from the chinese word for scraping. In Tradtional Chinese Medicine the action of scraping the skin causes light bruising known as 'petechiae' or 'sha'- these appear as red & purple markings or spots on the skin. These markings represent superfical broken capillaries that trigger your body into an immune and anti-inflammatory response to improve circulation and break down adhesions.
This traditional technique has been used for centuries in various cultures for it potential benefits. While it is important to note that the benefits can vary from person to person, many individuals have reported experiencing the following effects:
Relaxation, improved circulation, enhanced skin appearance, release of tension, facial contouring, stress reduction, and promotion of mind-body connection.

HOW TO USE YOUR STONE
Gua Sha is performed at a 15-45 degree angle between one of the stones edges and your skin, in one direction, and in even strokes. ALWAYS remember to apply an oil to your skin before beginning your massage.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR STONE
After each use rinse with warm water and gentle soap, followed by placing the stone back into its protective sleeve.
Please be advised that your stone is fragile and may become oily or slippery when using/ cleaning causing it to break if dropped. For this reason we recommend placing a towel or blanket below you before beginning your gua sha routine to minimize breakages.
** Our stones are handcrafted from authentic and genuine stone that may have some slight flaws ( including but not limited to: color, pattern, shape, size, etc.) These flaws will not affect the function of your stone and are merely cosmetic.
