HOW TO USE
*-Use How To Gua Sha Video-*
Sink the gua sha tool into your skin tissue, until it meets the wall of your muscle layer. The edge of the gua sha is vigorously rubbed along the skin moving back & forth until a blood glow appears. This means it is working!
Best used with a body oil to drive nutrients into the tissues. The gua sha can be used with water in the shower/tub, or in a sauna/steam room. The gua sha can also be used over clothes. This technique can create bruising from the toxins releasing in the tissues. With time the bruising will stop happening, since the toxins will be released and the tissues will re-tonify.
-The more bruising that occurs, the more slow blood or toxins one may have trapped in their tissues.
-Let any bruised area rest until it's back to normal, in the meantime, move on to another area of your body.
