Gua Sha Face Massager
What is a Gua Sha face massager?
Gua sha, or 刮痧, directly translates to “scratch” and “sand” (here, the sand refers to the raised redness on the skin instead of actual sand). “‘Sha’ is caused by the bacteria or virus toxins, which break the capillaries and form hyperemia areas or spots in the skin or mucus, and form sand-like scattered or condensed areas,” said Wang.
The sand analogy stemmed from the act of performing Gua sha, where technicians gently scrape the skin and see tiny dots under the skin emerge; these little granules resemble pieces of sand, which led to their name, Wang elaborated. Gua Sha stones predate modern medicine and originated in China, where the stones were once used to treat various illnesses.
Aura Skincare's Gua sha stone is made of Jade Stone.
