Crystal Gua Sha - Black Obsidian
Gua Sha is an East Asian technique adopted to promote wellbeing, increase circulation and remove toxins that build up in the body. Gua means to scrape and Sha means sand so the Gua Sha tool is designed to help that process. When used correctly, the stroke pattern activates the body's healing abilities by awakening the meridian lines or life-force path.
Awakening the meridian lines helps enliven organs such as the stomach, liver, heart and kidneys while the skin benefits include increased circulation & collagen production which makes skin appear more plump & radiant. Each stroke helps release muscle tension, sculpting & toning the face which also allows inflammation & toxins to drain away.
Benefits of a crystal gua sha:
- ♡ Increased flow of oxygenated blood/ circulation
- ♡ Drains toxins from cells
- ♡ Reduce appearance of wrinkles
- ♡ Brightens complexion
- ♡ Reduce tension & headaches
