Pourquoi faut-il se masser le corps avec un Gua Sha ?

Why should you massage your body with Gua Sha?

What if your Gua Sha allowed you to transform your body? Indeed, in recent years we have heard a lot about the benefits of Gua Sha massage for the face: it lifts the skin, sculpts the features and helps decongest the face by draining the lymph towards the lymph nodes, but we still talk little about everything what Gua Sha massage can do to the body.

Why use Gua Sha on the body?

Gua Sha, designed to stimulate blood circulation, relax muscles and promote healing, can be used on both the face and body. For example, when used on the legs, it helps reduce pain and inflammation. By stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation, Gua Sha can also help eliminate toxins from the body. We recommend the use of Gua Sha for people suffering from swelling in the lower limbs, as this tool will drain fluids to the lymph nodes located in the groin.

Which body oil to use?

We advise you to use an oil with a fine texture to facilitate the body massage. If possible, choose one rich in antioxidants and with a non-greasy finish to keep your skin comfortable. Our multi-use oil Every Season Oil is ideal for self-massage of the body and helps fight skin aging thanks to its concentration of antioxidants. You can also opt for pure jojoba oil or argan oil, both of which are perfect for use on the body.

How to massage your body with Gua Sha?

Choose a suitable Gua Sha, which is not too thin and whose shape is designed for body massage, such as our jade or quartz Gua Sha for example. Always apply an oil or lotion to allow the Gua Sha to glide easily onto the skin. Slide the tool along your muscles, following the direction of blood flow, from the lower leg toward the groin.

The key to the effectiveness of Gua Sha lies in regularity. So, by practicing this technique regularly, you will maximize its benefits and gradually see an improvement in the texture and health of your skin. For optimal results, we recommend a 10-minute Gua Sha massage session per day, morning or evening depending on your preference. You can incorporate it into your daily skincare routine, right after applying your body oil.
