Have you wished you could shrink your pores, lift your facial muscles, tighten your skin, or just rejuvenate your face as a whole without surgery?
A traditional Chinese technique, gua sha helps to stimulate circulation to your muscles, tissue, and organs. In doing so, gua sha then helps to promote the healing and restoration of your cells, and stimulates your cutaneous nerve endings to help improve their transmission function. Gua sha also promotes secretion of the cells, and speeds up the process of metabolite being ejected from the pores.
By promoting the flow of qi, increasing circulation, and promoting the metabolism of the skin, excess water and metabolite are then expelled, helping to ensure your skin is able to absorb essential nutrients.
What other benefits will I see from a gua sha facial?
Besides helping to shrink pores, tighten skin, lift facial muscles, and rejuvenate your face, a gua sha facial can also indirectly support the function of your fu-zang organs. (Zang organs include your heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, spleen and pericardium, whilst your fu organs are the stomach, gallbladder, small intestine, large intestine, bladder, and sanjiao.)
Your face comprises of nine meridians, all of which are connected with your organs. When your facial meridians and acupoints are stimulated, qi is drawn into the meridians. As such, gua sha can indirectly help to regulate your internal organs.
