Why use a gua sha? This facial gua sha technique moves lymphatic fluid out of the face which clears toxins and increases microcirculation. With regular use, gua sha can clear the skin, reduce blemishes, and even lessen rosacea. 

 

The goal of a gua sha treatment is to move the lymphatic fluid layer right under the skin out of the face and down the neck. This technique will also bring fresh circulation to the face resulting in clearing toxins and bringing fresh nourishment to your skin. 

Before a gua sha treatment, I apply the Gua Sha Oil to my face. This allows the tool to glide over the skin rather than stretch the skin and is a nutrient dense oil which will deeply absorb during the treatment

 

Unless instructed otherwise, this technique is best with an almost flat angle to the face. Think around 15 degrees – this will make sense if watching the video. The pressure of the tool should be gentle. Probably more gentle than you think.
