I can’t really remember when my obsession with gua sha began.
Maybe it was a friend who suggested it or I could’ve discovered it on my own in a desperate attempt to erase the fine lines and wrinkles that were starting to appear on my face or even slightly before that.
In any case, I’m so into it!
I can’t think of anything else that’s safe and natural that could awaken the cells, promote healing, blood circulation, increase blood flow and oxygen to the skin like gua sha can!
Because of that, I’ve been diligently performing gua sha on my face everyday, morning and night, if I can manage. Or at least once a day and I love how alive I always feel after that.
People always wonder why I have this glow about me, especially since I don’t really use makeup, not on my face that is.
Friends who haven’t seen me in a while never fail to notice that my face is slimmer, sharper so I’m telling you, this gua sha stuff really works!
The only thing to note though is if you’ve had surgery or botox or fillers done recently. You’d wanna avoid doing gua sha because the friction between the bian stone gua sha tool and our skin is going to cause some things to rearrange, move around and you really don’t want that.
Apart from that, gua sha is very much a natural technique to safely erase years off your face without surgery or downtime. In fact, I find that I always look younger, my skin feels tighter and my features are generally more lifted especially after I’ve done gua sha.
I hope you give it a go and follow closely the gua sha video step by step.
