The Jade Roller & Gua Sha stone promotes blood flow to the eyes, face, and neck, which reduces puffiness and wrinkles, and can be used with face creams to help absorb them.
Gua sha, or 刮痧, means “scratch” & “sand” (sand refers to the raised redness on the skin). “Sha” is caused by the bacteria or virus toxins, which break the capillaries and form hyperemia areas, or spots in the skin or mucus, and form sand-like scattered or condensed areas, which is removed by the use of Guasha.
After using gua sha, it is common for users to experience redness or tenderness (a sign of blood renewal) temporarily. The result lasts for few days, that’s why it is to be used on a daily basis or at least in 3-4 days.
It is the heart chakra, and the Chinese have used it for its medicinal and cosmetic properties for centuries. The crystal benefits come from the fact that it’s cold to the touch & the cold restricts blood flow to a particular area, and pressure pushes fluid, known as lymph, to the lymph nodes, which process it and filter out toxins.
