The term comes from the word Gua which means “to scrape” and the word Sha which could be translated as “pathogenic sand” or “accumulation of toxins” or “energy blockage”. Hence the objective of the massage is to release these toxins through the mobilization of fluids.
GUA SHA – GENERAL BENEFITS
Causes through friction a stimulation of lymphatic and blood circulation, with the consequent increase in the movement of body fluids, increases metabolic function and helps to eliminate toxins accumulated at the superficial and deep tissue level with what we get a detoxifying and draining effect from the first session.
It moves blood and stagnant energy. Promotes oxygenation and circulation avoiding and improving spider veins.
GUA SHA – FACIAL TREATMENTS
In the facial treatment an immediate lifting effect can be appreciated, relaxing the facial contractures and hardness that are produced by contracting the muscles due to the daily tension and stress that we suffer in the jaws, neck, eye contour, between the eyebrows and forehead.
The treatment visibly reduces wrinkles, expression lines and eye puffiness.
It also helps in the treatment of pigmentation reduction. From the first session you can see the effects on the stiffness, smoothness and color of the skin.
