The Gua Sha stone is a massage tool of Chinese origin that is used to relieve muscle tension, reduce inflammation, and improve blood circulation. This stone is made of different materials such as rose quartz, jade, and obsidian.
The use of the Gua Sha stone is beneficial for the skin. By massaging the skin, blood and lymphatic circulation are stimulated, which helps reduce puffiness, improve the appearance of the skin, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, massage with Gua Sha can improve the absorption of skincare products.
Gua Sha massage is performed by sliding the stone across the skin, applying light pressure to the muscles, acupuncture points, and meridians, helping to relieve muscle tension and improve blood and lymphatic circulation.
How to Use the Gua Sha Stone
To use the Gua Sha stone, you must cleanse your skin and apply a facial oil or serum to make it easier for the stone to glide over your skin. You should start with the neck and jawline, and then work your way up the face, paying special attention to areas with fine lines and wrinkles.
It is important to note that too much pressure should not be applied when massaging the skin with the Gua Sha stone. The stone should be slid with gentle, controlled movements, applying just the right amount of pressure to avoid causing damage to the skin.
Obsidian Gua Sha Stone and Its Benefits
The Obsidian Gua Sha Stone has additional benefits to those mentioned above. Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic stone that forms when lava cools rapidly. This stone is known for its purifying properties. Massaging with the Obsidian Gua Sha Stone can help cleanse the skin of impurities and toxins, thus improving the appearance of the skin.
Massage with the obsidian Gua Sha stone can also help balance and harmonize the body's energy, helping to reduce stress and anxiety.
For this reason, the Gua Sha stone is a beneficial massage tool for the skin and ideal to incorporate into your daily skincare routine.
