How to Use Velvette's Gua Sha for Facial Massage

by Joyce Tse February 13, 2023

As Chinese-Canadians, we, the Founders, Joyce & Jenny have practiced Gua Sha techniques as long as we can remember! Honoring these traditional practices, we designed our own patented Gua Sha plate to enhance the efficacy of our face oils!

Gua Sha has been practiced in China for thousands of years. It was originally used as a healing technique to treat a range of ailments, from chronic pain, respiratory problems, and for cosmetic purposes. Gua Sha is a form of massage that involves using a smooth tool to apply pressure to the skin. The pressure helps to increase blood flow, stimulate the skin, encourage lymphatic drainage and promote healing! 

Watch below for a step-by-step tutorial video on how to use our Gua Sha tool! With Co-founder Joyce, you'll learn how to properly hold the tool, massage different areas of your face and neck, and also how to clean and care for your tool to ensure it lasts for years to come!
