THE TOOL is inspired by the Traditional Chinese Medicine practice of Gua Sha which is believed to aid circulation, reduce inflammation and support lymphatic drainage of the skin. The term Gua Sha is often translated as “scraping”, since the technique is characterized by moving a flat, blunt-sided object against the skin in repeated upward strokes.
Facial Gua Sha activates acupressure points along the twelve major meridian lines in your face. It also helps to stimulate blood circulation, increasing the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the skin, which in turn improves skin health.
THE TOOL is made from hypoallergenic, solid stainless steel and is designed to cradle the contours of the face. The metal base stays cool, helping to calm and depuff the skin.
