With origins in the ancient beauty traditions of China and Southeast Asia, Gua Sha is a massage technique designed to relieve tension in the muscles of the face and enhance beauty rituals by promoting the lifting of the skin, leaving the face sculpted and glowing after use.
We chose to create our Gua Sha using Rose Quartz- known as “The Heart Stone”. Rose Quartz is known for its motherly nurturing qualities, promoting compassion, beauty, and universal love.
Rose Quartz Guasha
Directions: Apply a facial oil and warm up gua sha slightly by rubbing it between your hands. Sweep up neck, under the chin + jaw line, under cheekbones, middle of the forehead down the hairline and over the eyebrow.
Jawline and Chin: Glide your gua sha tool upwards from the center of the chin out to the earlobe to contour the jaw.
Forehead: Start at the center of the forehead and divide your forehead into three sections and glide your gua sha tool outwards. Scrape once, then move down a bit and scrape again.
Cheek: Start at the nose and work upwards in a swooping motion along the cheeks & cheekbones, moving outwards toward your ears. Scrape once, then move down a bit and scrape again, move down a bit more to the center of the chin and scrape again.
Under-Eye: Start in the inner corner of the eye, and glide outwards to the temple to send your eye-bags packing (Be VERY delicate in the area around your eyes.)
Brows: Glide upwards along the brow bone - going from the inside out.
Neck: Section your neck into 4 areas and scrape each section from the bottom up - 5 strokes per section.
