Gua Sha is an ancient natural Asian healing scraping technique. Gua Sha Bian stone is a massage tool to improve the blood circulation in the skin and stimulates microcirculation of the soft tissue which increases the blood flow that gives the skin a healthier and firmer look. When creating the movement in a certain direction we help the lymphatic drainage flow to remove toxins from the face and to clear the skin.
Increased heat dilates blood vessels and increases the blood circulation which brings oxygenated blood in to every cell and brings essential nutrients and hormones to them. And when we scrape the skin we bring the blood flow to the surface we improve the skin tone and help to regenerate new skin cells.
The lymphatic system is a support to the circulatory and immune system and is known as the intercellular fluid. The main job is to carry out waste products and pathogens . If we have a sluggish or inefficient lymphatic system it causes the skin to hold on to the toxins and we get puffy, lifeless skin.
