According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the entire channel organ system unites on the face. So, we are able to infer imbalances occurring in the body by simply observing our faces. For context, gua sha pre-dates acupuncture. The stroke pattern used in gua sha and jade rolling awakens the meridian lines (lifeforce path) to activate the body’s natural healing abilities. For the skin, it encourages collagen production (strength in cells). It sculpts and tones the face shape, allowing inflammation to drain and muscles to become free of tension — allowing them to do their supportive jobs properly. It also helps the skin return to its most radiant state as circulation is increased, sending nutrients to areas that may have been starved because of blockage.
Tip: Apply your favourite sheet mask and then jade roll on top of it, it helps to massage the sheet mask ingredients into the skin. In hot summer, keep the jade roller or gausha in the fridge a night before, then glide across gently your face in the morning. It helps calm inflammation and redness.
