Uplifting Gua Sha Heart
Originally used as a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Gua Sha is an ancient wellness method that has been adapted in modern times as an effective and stress relieving way to help improve the appearance of skin laxity, promote lymphatic drainage, reduce fluid retention and trigger muscle relaxation for a smoother, transformed appearance. And because Rose Quartz Crystal gemstones are said to emit transformational, loving energy, this tool also helps to bring forward feelings of self-love, self-worth and compassion.
Ritual: Always apply an oil or serum prior to use to allow the gua sha tool to glide over the skin without pulling. For lymphatic drainage and anti-inflammation: With the tool almost flat to the skin, and using whichever side fits the angles of your face most comfortable, lightly glide your heart along the jawline, cheeks, and under eye area aiming for the ears. Pressure should be light so that the skin does not get stretched. Repeat three to five times on each area. On the neck, move your heart in a downwards motion towards the collar bones. On the brow and forehead area, draw it straight up towards the hairline. Again, repeat three to five times in each area being careful not to tug on the skin. For muscle relaxation: Repeat the steps above three to five times each, using slightly more pressure in each stroke while using the other hand as an anchor on the skin in order to prevent tugging or stretching.
Please note that rose quartz is a natural stone and there is variation in the color from stone to stone. Rose quartz can chip, crack or break if dropped or packed without adequate cushioning. Returns or exchanges of gua sha stones will unfortunately not be offered should your gua sha stone become damaged for these or similar reasons.
