Facial Gua Sha for Skin


Facial tools, usually made from Jade for it’s cooling properties are used to smooth out wrinkles on the face and increase circulation. Usually gua sha is used with facial cups for facial cupping and most often both are used with facial acupuncture for what is known as Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture.

What is Gua Sha Used For?

Gua sha is used for Rosacea, Melasma, dark circles, sagging, puffiness and to smoothe out wrinkles.

  • Rosacea
  • Melasma
  • Wrinkles
  • Dark circles
  • Puffiness of skin
  • Sagging skin

How it Works:

Acupuncture points are stimulated with the gua sha tool on the face to increase blood circulation and decrease stagnation and inflammation. Gently massaging the face over acupuncture points with gua sha smoothes out wrinkles such as the furrow between the eyebrows and deep wrinkles of the forehead. Gua sha can be used along with facial cupping and facial rejuvenation or as a treatment alone.
