Gua sha has been around for over 1,000 years and is typically used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. A non-invasive treatment, gua sha uses various tools to apply pressure to different parts of the skin and promote blood flow to those areas. This elegant gua sha tool is a rectangle, allowing you to use the edge or corners to apply pressure.
Purpose of gua sha
Thanks to the rectangular shape, you can use any side of this tool to get different outcomes. With the flat edges, you can apply a more gentle, scraping treatment. With the corners, you can apply more focused pressure directly onto an acupoint. Pushing and scraping are classic methods of revitalising the skin.
