Our stone is REAL jade and has been custom made for SBA. It has been polished to ensure no sharp edges.
Facial Gua Sha is an ancient healing technique within Traditional Chinese Medicine that visibly rejuvenates the skin through massage motions using a smooth gemstone tool.
It works with the skin to support lymphatic drainage, calming the nervous system, relieving muscle tension + tightness, clearing congestion + buildup, and increasing the flow of oxygen and vital nutrients to the skin.
Pressure: Always start with light pressure. You can incorporate more medium pressure on specific areas where you carry more tension to relieve stagnation (shoulders, jaw, etc).
Placement: Avoid acne breakouts and work around inflammation instead of directly over it to help with healing. Wiggle stone slightly at the end of each step to stimulate blood flow and release any tension.
Commit: Consistency is key! Even if you only have 5 minutes or less, follow the neck sequence to open up pathways + promote lymph drainage.
Clean: We recommend washing with warm + soapy water after each use. You can use an alcohol wipe as well or our Clarifying Cleanser.
Each stone is unique and the colors vary due to the natural diversity of the stone.
The skincare you use with this stone is important. It will penetrate into your skin more deeply. We highly recommend using either of our serums, or the Sweet Dreams Glow Balm with this stone.
Gua Sha should not be practiced on those with botox, fillers, or pregnant women as it can stimulate certain acupressure points that need to be avoided during pregnancy. Please do your own research on whether or not you should use the stone if you fall under any of the categories just mentioned.
