Promote blood circulation. “From a Chinese medicine perspective, the Tai Yin meridians (composed of the lung and spleen) and Yang Ming meridians (composed of the large intestines and the stomach) are responsible for your skin's overall health,” said Lee. “When you gently scrape the skin on your face with your gua sha tool, what you are doing is stimulating your Yang Ming meridians. You are also sending your body a signal that this area needs more blood circulation.” Warm your gua sha tool:“Warm between clean hands before you use your chosen tool. In traditional Chinese medicine, we generally avoid using cold tools on the skin and body because cold constricts circulation.” The Graston Technique is just a trademarked version of the gua sha massage technique. The difference is that you get Graston from a physical therapist. They’re going to talk about the technique entirely in anatomical or physiological terminology. If you go to a very strict acupuncturist, you’ll probably hear more about promoting qi and blood circulation and helping to break up the stagnation of energy in your body. But at the end of the day, both therapies have the same goal outcome.” Is gua sha routinely offered during acupuncture sessions?

According to Sobo, you can go simple with a small wooden spoon or you can get a gemstone gua sha tool.

According to the principles of TCM, your qi (pronounced “chi”), or energy, must flow throughout your body so you can feel your best. When qi becomes stagnant in certain areas, it’s believed that health problems can occur. With gua sha, a practitioner (an acupuncturist in many cases) will use a smooth-edged tool to gently scrape areas of your body where there is inflammation or stagnant qi to help improve circulation and promote healing.

Which stone is best for Gua Sha?

Promotes lymphatic drainage. Gua sha can eliminate fluid build-up, which can in turn reduce puffiness, experts said. Shape:“Using precision gua sha tools can help target acupressure points, improve blood circulation and remove heat from the face.” Consider those with angled edges or a concave edge to really hug the facial contours. “Other smooth and rounded gua sha tools can help with massaging wider surface areas and relieving jaw tension.”

Cleanse the skin:“Begin your routine with cleansed skin.For evening,we recommend double cleansingto ensure make-up, sunscreen, dirt and excess oil is fully removed.” Gua sha, or 刮痧, directly translates to “scratch” and “sand” (here, the sand refers to the raised redness on the skin instead of actual sand). “‘Sha’ is caused by the bacteria or virus toxins, which break the capillaries and form hyperemia areas, or spots in the skin or mucus, and form sand-like scattered or condensed areas,” said Wang. The sand analogy stemmed from the act of performing gua sha, where technicians gently scrape the skin and see tiny dots under the skin emerge; these little granules resemble pieces of sand, which led to their name, Wang elaborated. After applying gua sha, it is common for users to experience redness or tenderness (a sign of blood renewal), but those effects will subside within a few days. Sobo adds that while acupuncturists are trained in gua sha, it’s not always offered during acupuncture sessions. This could come down to it not making sense for the areas of the body being treated or an acupuncturist just opting not to do it. But if you’re interested in experiencing gua sha, you can always request it when making your appointment. Does gua sha hurt? While records of gua sha usage started emerging in the Ming Dynasty, it is still a commonly used TCM technique today. Practitioners have found it helpful for alleviating pain as well as increasing circulation and energy flow. And while there have been many Chinese studies regarding the efficacy of gua sha, it is only recently that American researchers have begun publishing their own findings. Among those listed above, gua sha also helps:This facial massage technique is rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine practice. Here's a brief step-by-step from Yau to get you started: If you’ve been on TikTok in the past month, you may have come across gua sha tutorials — or videos in which users apply a smooth, angled stone on their face. Gua sha has recently surged in popularity — so much so, in fact, that at the time of publishing, the hashtag #guasha has accumulated more than 432 million views on TikTok, with users claiming the appliance has cleared their skin, reduced wrinkles and provided a more sculpted appearance. However, while the facial tool has recently exploded in popularity on social media platforms, the practice is nothing new. It actually predates modern medicine and originated in China, where the stones were once used to treat various illnesses. If you’re looking to start practicing gua sha on your face, the first step experts recommend is cleansing. By starting with a clean face, you can ensure your face is free from any impurities that may get into your skin when scraping. From there, lather facial oil to protect your top layer of skin from abrasion. When considering a gua sha tool, experts recommend looking for something that fits well in your hand — something that is comfortable and not too overwhelming. Regarding the material the tool is made from, experts say it is completely up to you. In TCM, certain stones are related to specific goals. For example, Lee shared that quartz benefits the immune system while strengthening your cardiovascular system. On the other hand, she shared that jade, which has a long history in Chinese culture, is used to cool and purge the body from toxins. Mount Lai Gua Sha And like many words in the Chinese language, the characters that make up “gua sha” provide insight into what the practice is, as Lee shared. “The Chinese character for ‘Gua’ (刮) is composed of the character for ‘tongue’ on the left and ’knife’ on the right. The Chinese character for ‘Sha’ (痧) is composed of ’illness’ or ’disease’ on top and ’sand’ on the bottom,” she explained.

You’ve probably seen people rubbing gua sha stones across their faces on social media and wondered what was going on. Gua sha has been proven to help relieve tension in the face, reduce puffiness and inflammation, and it can even help reduce sinus pressure. However, since the musculature of the face is much thinner, you’ll want to avoid applying too much pressure as you’re working on this area. According to celebrity aesthetician Angela Caglia, the benefits of regular facial massages are manifold. "It will stimulate blood flow for instant glow, and also help to relax your facial muscles, which reduces stress," she says "If done properly, a face massage can also assist with reducing puffiness and give a temporary sculpting effect to the face." Caglia recommends prepping the skin with a lightweight face oil for slip and applying "gentle pressure in upwards and outwards directions".
