Why Are Gua Sha Stones Good For You?

There are different types of facial treatments: both professional and at-home. From fancy and complex clarifying and detoxing to simple home treatments. For many centuries, women and men used various tools to make their skin look firmer, younger and brighter, as well as decrease the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.


Recently, at-home facial treatments have been gaining more and more popularity - one of them being Gua Sha. Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese technique that is meant to promote the flow of energy in one’s body. It is also extremely effective in stimulating blood flow and improving skin complexion.

Gua Sha can also reduce inflammation, puffiness and get rid of any extra fluids underneath the skin. This will help your face look firmer and younger, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. The results will be more noticeable if you decide to combine Gua Sha treatment with correct moisturizers, serums or facial creams.


Lastly, Gua Sha massage is also proven to reduce muscle tension and alleviate negative effects of everyday stress. Due to increased blood flow and muscle relaxation, your face and your neck will feel much better after frequent use of Gua Sha stone.


Overall, Gua Sha stone massage is an easy and effective way to improve your skin and your appearance, as well as relax your muscles and reduce stress. However, make sure to never push down on the stone, as it may be hard on your face and skin. Instead, go easy and let yourself enjoy this affordable and easy at-home facial treatment and see the results within weeks of consistent use.
