PERFECT FOR: Treating system toxicity, poor circulation, physical and emotional stress, and migraines
NOTE: Stone naturally varies in color.
WHAT YOU GET: (1) Rose Quartz Gua Sha
To perform Gua Sha healing for the body:
1. Determine if the subject has poor blood and Qi circulation. Press the muscles to feel for tension, ropiness, or knots. When you release pressure from a stagnant area, there will be blanched areas that are slow to return to correct color. This is a sign of poor circulation.
2. Apply Gua Sha to the affected area with a massage oil. Press down firmly, scraping the tool along the length of the affected muscle or along acupuncture meridians. Apply rapid 5-inch strokes. Create sufficient friction to raise the Sha, the toxins that flood to the skin’s surface and the actual removal of disease in the body.
The foundation of many health and fitness practices such as Massage, Yoga, Martial Arts, Feng Shui and Acupressure, Chi is the energy recognized as the balance of Yin and Yang, which flows in everything in creation. Chi Beauty is committed to applying this very balance into your everyday beauty regimen. It offers products that work naturally to harness your Qi (pronounced CHI), using centuries-old traditions of promoting anti-aging, healthy, and beauty.
I really love facial massages, I feel like it really clears up the stress and the swelling in my face and it's a great weekly treat for myself. This Gua Sha is nicely shaped for that purpose, it has the pointy end to really get into the pressure points and drain the area around the eyes and I find the ribbed end is good for sweeping across the cheeks and chin. This works even better if you put it in the fridge for a while so it's nice and cold! I don't really buy into certain rocks releasing good energy though so I didn't see added benefit in having a rose quartz one specifically, I also found it rather pricey for what is essentially a carved rock. Overall, if you like facial massages like I do this is a great shape and if you like the supposed benefits of rose quartz, this is a good buy.6 months ago
