Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese technique that can help improve your skin quality through increasing blood flow. To stimulate microcirculation of the soft tissue, massage therapists scrap you with a gua massage tool made of jade, rose quartz, and other divinely polished stones. This traditional healing practice can be performed on your arms, neck, face, legs, and back. It doesn’t cause any pain and brings only long-awaited relaxation as massage practitioners apply mild pressure and gradually increase intensity while scraping your skin with short or long strokes. This stress-relieving and grounding ritual has a lot of benefits for your mental and physical health. It relieves muscular tension and eases tightness and can be a suitable solution for chronic headache sufferers. Apart from that, Gua Sha can help breastfeeding women avoid or minimize the symptoms of engorgement, breast fullness, and discomfort. If you suffer from neck pain, this massage technique is also suitable for you as it decreases pain. Gua Sha helps improve lymphatic function, so it can make your skin glow and even prevent or clear acne. Women with perimenopausal symptoms may also find Gua Sha helpful because it improves sleep quality, decreases anxiety, fatigue, and hot flashes.
