The ancient Gua Sha facial gains new popularity.

We all know diamonds are a girl’s best friend.  They were coveted by Marilyn Monroe, adorn the royal family and countless women who can attest to their timeless glamour.  But what if a precious stone had the ability to counter and improve the texture and tone of aging skin, then who would be your best friend?  Jade, that’s who. An ancient Chinese tradition dating back to the Ming dynasty is now being hailed as the “Eastern facelift” and devotees around the globe swear by its efficacy.

See tutorials on youtube on how to use it:

Gua Sha body treatments have enjoyed quite a bit of attention from the public and celebrities the last few years: Utilizing a handheld tool made of horn, yak, crystal, or bone, Gua Sha literally translating as “to scrape.”  The treatment can simultaneously nourish the skin and rid the body of toxins.  Proponents claim that Gua Sha produces an anti-inflammatory and increased immunity effect that relieves pain almost immediately. Other symptoms that can be treated include stiffness, nausea, fever and vomiting, impotence, urinary problems, high blood pressure, hormonal imbalances and various skin disorders.

Fast forward to Gua Sha facial therapy.  The jade home use tool is lightweight and ergonomic and free of the vigorous back and forth motion of the body treatments.  A Gua Sha facial uses gentle, sweeping motions which aid in lymphatic drainage.   Used correctly and consistently, Gua Sha helps in the treatment of rosacea, acne, and dryness.  The stimulation of “chi” and “prana” helps tone the muscles and firm the skin.  It increase blood circulation and oxygen to the skin, which results in cell respiration and turnover, which means increased collagen production.  At less than $25, this is a facial treatment you cannot afford not to use, even if you’re not yet convinced of its usefulness.

Amazone sells these tools for as little as $13.99
