Product Details

Gua sha has received recent praise for delivering impressive sculpting and tension-relieving results at a budget-friendly price point. While it may seem new to many of us, gua sha in fact dates back to the Paleolithic Age and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Now widely recognized for its beauty benefits, the practice of gua sha began as a full body treatment for illness, disease and acupuncture therapy, where a stone was used to scrape across the skin to relieve pain and inflammation.

How to use it:

Black Obsidian Properties

It naturally retains warmth and is great to use on a congested, blemish prone skin. The energy of the stone draws out tension and promotes the removal of blockages. The warmth of the obsydian encourages stimulation and circulation of the lymphatic system and reduces toxins and promotes clearer skin.

With all that said and done, does Gua Sha live up to the hype? We certainly think so, and not just for its skin-smoothing benefits, but as a holistic practice that encourages relaxation, reduces stress and releases tension in the body. As with most skin care habits, consistency is key to achieving the best results. Experts recommend starting your gua sha routine with two to three days a week and eventually working up to every day.

A study published in the Journal of Science and Healing suggests that Gua sha can increase microcirculation in the skin by up to 400%, which results in a healthy, youthful-looking glow. Another clinical trial published by PubMed demonstrated positive causation when combining facial massage and "anti-aging cream." In this trial, 22 women applied a commercial anti-aging cream, followed with the daily use of a massaging device. At the end of the eight-week period, wrinkles appeared visibly smoother, and the beneficial effects of the cream were amplified. Dermatologist (and YouTuber) Dr. Dray shares her professional opinion on gua sha and goes into detail about the clinical study mentioned above. As always, it’s important to begin any new skin care practice with realistic expectations!

Gua sha also:

  • Sculpts and contours the face
