Below are some benefits and information regarding Gua Sha facial:
Gua Sha is a massage technique that is used to alleviate your facial muscle tension, increase your blood circulation, and promote lymphatic drainage in order to reduce bloating.

What is the difference between a jade and a rose quartz gua sha?
“These two crystals have both been revered in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The philosophy is that gemstones support our Jing Qi (life essence), blood (circulation) and fluids (lymphatic drainage).
“Traditionally, different crystals have different purposes. Jade is used to balance yin and yang energy, whilst rose quartz supports heart energy in particular. It’s good to gua sha on the chest with rose quartz because the action tonifies the heart qi.
“It’s believed that the properties in rose quartz serve to help generate skin cell renewal, as well as improve uneven or dull skin complexion. That by simply holding crystal to your skin so you can absorb its properties.”
So how do you know which one to pick?
Jade is the perfect all-rounder, whereas rose quartz is especially good to use in the morning or if you have sensitive or inflamed skin. These differences I’m highlighting are subtle ones, so if you are hesitating to choose I’d go with whichever you are drawn towards – or both!
Rose Quartz is said to give off vibrations that promote love, happiness and emotional health. Facial Gua Sha Stone uses a stroke that creates pressure and stretch at the same time, which makes it more effective than the other tools.
