Gua sha is a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine. In fact, modern research shows Gua sha produces an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua sha treatment. Jade means purity or purification. This stone and shape was specifically designed to activate the bodyâ€™s natural healing abilities, increase circulation and stimulate the skin by sending nutrients to starved areas. As a beauty treatment, this technique is easy to perform, inexpensive and very powerful.
