Gua Sha is a natural ancient technique from Chinese Medicine that we love at The Skin Studios Hove.
The Gua Sha tool is usually made of jade stone, bone or horn which is taken across the skin in upward or outward motions to increase blood flow and oxygen.
In doing this stagnant energy is broken down, reducing inflammation and stimulating the lymphatic system.
Here are a few benefits for the skin:
Improves micro circulation
Contours muscles giving you a natural lift
Rejuvenates, tones and smooths skin
Reduces the look of dark circles and puffiness around eyes
We offer this in a few of our Facial treatments, but you can also do it yourself at home too.
All you need is a tool and a few minutes spare a day.
We love the Gua Sha tools from Hayo’u and use them all in our treatments. You can also buy them for yourself to use at home from their website which comes with a step by step routine.
If you would like to know any more about our Facials that apply this method then check out our Firm & Tone Facials HERE.
We look forward to seeing you soon at The Skin Studios
