Facial gua sha uses a small, smooth stone tool that is pressed against the skin to gently massage facial fascia, muscles, and skin while stimulating specific energy points. The beautiful rainbow fluorite facial gua sha tool we carry at Ayla is as foolproof as they come and not only easy to use, but also quite versatile. In this tutorial, our Guide and esthetician, Beth, explains the shape of our tool and what each side can be used for. 

Gua sha is a traditional healing technique from China that involves a small, smooth stone board that is pressed against the skin to gently massage facial fascia, muscles, and skin while stimulating specific energy points.
