The AEOS Gua Sha tool is made from rose quartz crystal.
The benefits of Gua Sha include improving skin tone, stimulating the lymphatic system, and aiding the meridians that run on the surface of the skin, face and neck.
Utilising the benefits of Gua Sha is not only about your tool but also about the right product to work the technique, yet many people find that they don’t want to use their Gua Sha because their skin remains oily and it also goes to their hair, making it uncomfortable as a morning routine.
The AEOS Hemp & Hydrate Face Cream is a specific formulation that has been designed with Gua Sha in mind. Refined through experimentation after many months of trials we are extremely proud of what this cream can achieve.
In Gua Sha too much oil between the tool and the skin leads to too much residue. Heavy creams are not suitable because they restrict the action of the tool, not allowing to flow easily and lightly upon the surface of the face. This hemp cream leaves a certain amount of oil to the surface to add the possibility of slipability on the skin whilst at the same time nourishing the deeper layers of the skin. This means that you can do your Gua Sha routine in the morning and get the benefits of this practice plus enjoy a moisturised and nourished skin for the rest of your day, without any oily residue.
Gua Sha has been traced back to the Paleolithic age where rocks or stones were scraped along parts of the body to help alleviate symptoms of pain or illness, and is considered a precursor to Acupuncture. Gua Sha tools evolved into instruments made from bone, plastic and Bian Stone and Jade.
Gua sha is still performed in many eastern cultures with a coin in homes of families who believe strongly in releasing pathogens through the muscles and skin, and often don’t have access to a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner.
Acupuncturists often use a Gua Sha tool in an Acupuncture treatment to provide additional healing to specific painful or injured parts of the body as an adjunct therapy. It is not necessary to create bruising to see results. Just as a tiny Acupuncture needle can invoke change in the body, Gua Sha is an effective form of energy medicine as well.
Ideal for use with the AEOS Hemp & Hydrate Face Cream.
I am a big lover of gua sha. I personally love to use it on my body each morning after getting out of the shower with a lather of body oil on my legs and butt cheeks. I use the gua sha tool quite vigorously on this area. For the face, I love to gua sha when I'm in the sauna. Especially on my jaw line which gets quite tense (but a more gentle gua sha action on my face than I do on my body). It's a beautiful way to relieve stress that we hold on our face.
