Scalloped Quarts Gua Sha Stone by LIVING LIBATIONS
You can bless your body with a therapeutic Gua Sha body-treatment by scraping oiled skin with the flat edge of our Quartz Crystal Gua Sha stone using significant pressure. Traditionally, the skin is scraped vigorously enough to leave red marks. In 2007, Harvard researchers studying Gua Sha discovered a fourfold increase in circulation to the skin for seven and a half minutes after scraping.
Gua Sha facials, though, are usually gentler; a corresponding curve in our Gua Sha stone is glided over the face and neck and along pressure points to sculpt and uplift, ease puffiness, and liberate muscular tension that can cause lines and wrinkles. After just one session of Gua Sha-ing with a Living Libations serum the appearance of your skin will look radiant, toned, lifted, and glowing.
Gua Sha facials are especially ideal for people with sensitive skin because they will glean the benefits of a massage and facial without using a lot of products or having fingers touch their skin.
While Gua Sha implements can be comprised of a variety of materials, we prefer the smooth, cool beauty of crystal quartz. Quartz stones are prismatic crystals of silicon and oxygen compressed by geologic forces into hardened, sparkling light. Throughout history, the innate enchanting, reflective colors of quartz stones have attracted healers and humans because quartz naturally amplifies energy and seems to transpose its own light onto the human receiver.
