This ancient Chinese technique is one of the most simple and rewarding self-care practices that you can do literally anywhere. Just like our bodies, the face is made of muscles that can benefit tremendously from guasha by addressing stagnant energy, increasing blood circulation, promoting lymphatic drainage, breaking down fascia, and reducing facial bloating. With regular use you will not only ease tension, stress, and minimize lines that naturally form from expression but, you will actively tone and enhance skin elasticity too. Working with the epidermis and dermal layers beneath guasha also helps to prevent and clear breakouts. There’s a reason guasha users report having smoother, plumper, and more lifted looking skin, it works!
Both styles have been designed to be used interchangeably on the face or body and are appropriate for beginner or advanced users alike.
Wavy – The waved edged tool has been designed to caress the face and neck and is ideal for gentle lymphatic drainage work. The shape makes it easy to hold and a larger surface area makes it perfect for body work on the shoulders, arms, legs, and back. This tool is great for those who are discovering guasha as there are no complicated maneuvers necessary for optimal utilization.
Edgy – The sharp curves are designed to hug your jaw line, cheek and brow bones, while the jagged edges are made for targeting deeper lines and wrinkles. This tool is excellent for users who are very comfortable with basic guasha techniques and want to use the tool to explore more advanced target work.
