The Traditional Ritual
with Vivian Vaughan

Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the oldest healing modalities on the planet and considers the whole person (and the body's beautiful self-healing capabilities) in cultivating optimal well-being. That’s where gua sha comes in. Get to know the ancient roots and rich history of this healing Traditional Chinese Medicine technique from our friend and TCM Practitioner.

The Tool

  • Jade Gua Sha Stone
  • Bian Gua Sha Stone

Jade Gua Sha Stone

The perfect size to start your gua sha practice. Simple sides and curves create immediate results from lifting and firming to depuffing and brightening with the cooling and calming properties of sustainably sourced Serpentine Jade.

Bian Gua Sha Stone

Every result you’re looking for from one facial tool. An advanced shape with rejuvenating stone properties elevates your daily ritual. Bian stone has been a part of healing practices in TCM for centuries due to its proven therapeutic + medicinal properties:

  • Contains 30+ beneficial trace minerals
  • Emits infrared rays improving microcirculation, blood flow and oxygen to skin cells
  • Produces negative ions which can help balance mood, stress and sleep
  • Detoxifies and rejuvenates skin tissues

Whether you’re a newbie to this ancient beauty ritual or want to get more results from your gua sha practice, pair your stone with a skin-specific serum for optimal skin health, holistically. Discover your skin-specific serum match.

The Technique

5 P’s to get the best results from your daily gua sha ritual.
  1. Prep: Apply Skin-Specific Serum/Cream to clean skin for proper slip and to infuse nutrients more deeply.
  2. Pressure: Use light pressure (or medium/firm pressure on areas of tension - shoulders, jaw, etc).
  3. Pull (not push!): Use a 15-degree angle (about a finger’s width between the skin and stone) and support skin with the opposite hand.
  4. Placement: Always start on the neck, repeat each step 3-5 times and wiggle stone slightly at the end of each step to stimulate flow and release tension. Work around acne or inflammation instead of directly over it to stimulate healing.
  5. Practice: Have 5 minutes or less? Just focus on the neck flow to promote lymphatic drainage in the face. Benefits build over time so commit to a daily routine!
