Gua sha massage how-to
Before the massage, cleanse your face and apply a cream or serum or oil. This will make it easier for the scraper to slide over the skin, and at the same time the nutrients will penetrate into the skin. Massage should not be done on dry skin to avoid excessive stretching.
The movements should not be chaotic, they should be directed along the massage lines.
Start the massage with 7-10 movements along the back of your neck to help release muscle tension.
The face is massaged from the bottom up and from the center to the periphery. The forehead is massaged from the center to the temples. The massage lines are shown in the picture in the gallery.
The long side of the scraper can also be used on the body - for example, on the back of the neck. The short side is necessary for the cheekbones, around the eyes, for massage from the chin along the lower jaw. Be sure to hold the skin at the starting points of the movement with your fingers, especially around the eyelids.
Wipe clean with a damp cloth or antibacterial napkin. Do not soak in water or pour water onto the massage scraper. If water gets on the Gua Sha massage tool, wipe it with cloth and dry it away from heating.
