Gua sha or massage is a simple form of self-care that can be done at-home. Massage can help to relieve stress and tension, calming your nervous system to aid relaxation within the mind and body.
Gua sha involves stroking the skin with a smooth stone and a massage oil in upward or downward motion. With every stroke the aim is to flush out toxins, awakening the circulatory system and moving stagnant energy found under the skin’s surface. Stronger motions help to revitalize the body and mind if you’ve been feeling sluggish both mentally and physically, lighter more leisurely motions will help you to slow down and relax. Gua Sha tools can be used to massage your face and body.
Self-massage is an act of self-care and self-kindness. Take 5-10 minutes each day to practice to improve your mind, body and skin.
