Gua Sha Natural & Ethical Nephrite Jade Stone
Gua Sha: an energy and massage therapy of traditional Chinese medicine for a lifting & detoxifying effect. The technique is based on an ancient healing technique called Gua Sha, which was first referred to in a classical Chinese medicine text called the Shan Han Lun dated 220 CE. Originally, practitioners wanted to obtain ‘Sha’—redness that encourages the skin to heal itself.
Improves dark circles & eye puffiness
Relieves facial & jaw muscle tension
Detoxifies & restore skin's glow
It is great for lifting and sculpting the face, but it also can release tightness in certain areas like your jaw. It helps stimulate blood flow (which leads to brighter skin) and collagen production (if you’re concerned about skin volume and firmness). The process can also stimulate lymphatic flow and drainage, releasing excess fluids that can make the complexion look a little, well, inflated.
HOW TO USE
Massage muscular fascia & the lymphatic system using different edges & angles of the stone to adapt to the shape of your face.
Apply a dime-size puddle of facial oil and then use the tool over your entire face, neck and décolletage. It helps on days you really desire facial massage or need to reduce puffiness like your jawline. It isn’t hard to use at all—you simply just apply a little bit of pressure and scrape (not as harsh as it sounds) the skin to move the muscles and tissues underneath. Use a combination of short and long strokes across the areas that need it. 1
Always begin in the center of your face and move outwards with gentle pressure in short even strokes.
Massage from the center of your face by your nose towards cheeks. Then proceed to massage down the chin and up the forehead.
Roll down the sides of the neck and towards the clavicle to move fluid built up in the face towards the body’s center where they can be more effectively processed.
HOW TO PREP
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR GUA SHA
The process of cleaning your Gua Sha is a simple but necessary part of the entire treatment ritual.
Wash with dish soap (or better yet castile soap) and warm water, dry thoroughly and spray with isopropyl alcohol before storing away.
Tip: You can keep it in the fridge for additional soothing properties.

All of Muse Self Care Jade Gua Sha stones are made from ethical and authentic jade. As a huge lover of crystal healing they understand the importance of the energetic properties and good vibes that are absorbed into the crystals which is why they worked hard to find suppliers that transparently showed their creation process using nephrite jade rather than the Jadeite type of Jade that is mined in Myanmar that has caused conflict. Due to the great cultural value of Jade in China, especially of the traditional Gua Sha, the government regulates the mining process to adhere to all regulations.
Each gua sha stone comes with an informational card for use and care. And a white organza for storage.
