Originally used as a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Gua Sha is an ancient wellness method that has been adapted in modern times as a simple, effective, and stress relieving way to help improve the appearance of skin laxity, promote lymphatic drainage, reduce fluid retention, and trigger muscle relaxation for a smoother, more transformed appearance.
And because Rose Quartz Crystal gemstones are said to emit transformational, loving energy, this tool also helps to bring forward feelings of self-love, self-worth, kindness, and compassion.
Try our Petite Butterfly Gua Sha. Love truly can transform.
Always apply an oil, serum or moisturizer prior to use to allow the Gua Sha tool to glide over the skin without pulling.
For Lymphatic Drainage and Anti-Inflammation:
With the tool almost flat to the skin, lightly glide your butterfly along the jawline, cheeks, and under eye area aiming for the ears. Pressure should be light so that the skin does not get tugged or stretched. Repeat 1-5 times on each area.
On the neck, move your butterfly in a downwards motion towards the collar bones. On the brow and forehead area, draw it straight up towards the hairline. Again, repeat 1-5 times in each area being careful not to tug on the skin.
For Muscle Relaxation:
Repeat the steps above 1-5 times each, using slightly more pressure in each stroke, using the other hand as an anchor on the skin in order to prevent tugging or stretching.
There is no right or wrong side or angle of the butterfly to use. Choose whichever is comfortable for you.
Please note that rose quartz is a natural stone and there is variation in the color from stone to stone.
