Gua sha therapy is a traditional Chinese healing technique that involves using a tool to scrape the skin. The technique has been used for centuries to relieve pain, promote circulation, and improve overall health. In recent years, gua sha has gained popularity in Western countries, and many people are turning to this therapy to help manage chronic pain and other health issues.
Gua sha therapy involves using a tool to scrape the skin, which can help release muscle tension and promote circulation. The tool used in gua sha therapy is typically made from a smooth, flat material such as jade or rose quartz. The therapist applies oil to the skin and then uses the tool to gently scrape the skin in a downward motion. The scraping motion creates small bruises on the skin, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process. As a result, gua sha therapy can help relieve muscle tension and promote circulation, which can improve overall health and well-being.
The benefits of gua sha therapy include pain relief, improved immune function, and reduced inflammation. Gua sha therapy is an effective treatment for a variety of health issues, including chronic pain, headaches, and migraines. The therapy can also help boost the immune system, which can help prevent illness and disease. Additionally, gua sha therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation, which can help manage conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia.
Techniques for gua sha therapy may vary depending on the area of the body being treated and the desired outcome but generally involve applying pressure to targeted areas with a scraping motion. The therapist may use different tools and apply varying levels of pressure depending on the individual’s needs.
Facial gua sha for lymphatic drainage is different from body gua sha in that it leaves no marks.
Collagen helps reduce wrinkles while elastin helps firm and firm the face. This increased blood flow aids in detoxification. This can lead to a clearer complexion and promote lymphatic drainage.
Promotes lymphatic drainage:
– Start on the chin, then use the Gua Sha tool to sweep along the jawline to the ears.
– Move the tool behind the earlobe and down the neck.
– Repeat three times.
Collagen is a protein in your body that makes up about 75 percent of your skin’s protein content. This protein is responsible for giving your body more structure – it actually connects your ligaments, tendons, muscles, bones and skin. You could almost call it the glue that holds everything together. The word comes from the word “kola”, which means collagen.
The problem is that as life progresses, your collagen production also starts to decline. Your body can’t process the protein as well as it used to, causing the “glue” to suddenly start breaking down. It can no longer keep your skin plump, leaving you looking aged and tired.
Gua Sha is considered a treatment for maintaining beautiful, plump skin without plastic surgery or other invasive procedures. Whether you use a gua sha board or a jade roller, gua sha can stimulate collagen production and make you look years younger.
On the one hand, Gua Sha can improve blood circulation. For collagen to flow properly, your body must also have a healthy blood supply. When blood doesn’t flow properly, your skin can look tired, bags under the eyes and premature wrinkles appear.
However, since the Gua Sha technique works much like a facial massage to improve circulation, the result will be a facelift. It reduces puffiness and tightens sagging facial muscles for the overall complexion you want.
You are a great candidate for Gua Sha lymphatic anti-aging facial if you are looking to have a natural healing service completed that will improve circulation, aid in lymphatic drainage, relieve any tension, provide help with skin dryness, help with anti-aging and reduce breakouts, and add facial contours to your face.
This service has been around for many years, and is one of the most sought-after services by many, as it provides so many benefits, but also is a naturally effective treatment that doesn’t need any injections to show a difference.
Gua Sha facials work to help increase circulation as well as the production of aging molecules, elasticity, and collagen within the face.
Collagen helps to reduce your wrinkles, and elastic works to firm and tone the face. The increased circulation will also help to detoxify your face and neck, which can lead to a clearer complexion and promote lymphatic drainage.
For the absolute best results, it is recommended to complete a gua sha facial more often. However, no matter how often you have a gua sha facial for lymphatic anti-aging results, you are likely to see immediate results.
