THE BENEFITS OF GUA SHA

Created around 2000 years ago, Gua Sha is a natural, alternative healing technique that involves scraping the skin with a smooth-edged massage tool to improve circulation and lymphatic drainage. This Ancient Chinese Healing Technique may offer a unique approach to better health, addressing issues like chronic pain and relieving symptoms of stress. Other benefits include the production of Collagen, water retention reduction, a decrease in puffiness and softening of wrinkles and fine lines.
