Gua Sha tutorial for brow tension and fine lines

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. This encourages healthy circulation, releases muscular tension, and promotes lymphatic drainage for a more lifted, less puffy look and brighter, healthier looking skin. We particularly adore its effect on areas of the brow where many of us hold tension. 

In this quick and easy-to-follow video tutorial, our esthetician, Sarah, uses a rhodonite Gua Sha tool to address fine lines and relieve brow tension. 

 

A few tips:

Begin by misting your face generously and add a few drops of your facial oil to the face and neck. Here, Sarah uses M.E. Skin Fuel.
Hold the skin taut and use the serrated edge of the rhodonite stone to make quick, feather-light movements, as seen here. Smooth the skin out with the scalloped edge along the brow bone.
