5 Expert Tips to maximize your Gua Sha benefits


Applying a face oil first reduces friction from the scraping motion of the Gua Sha. It also helps the Gua Sha glide better for a more smooth and flowing movement.

Using a Gua Sha with the face oil can also help the face oil penetrate deeper into the skin, for enhanced moisturization!

Scrape at a 45 degree angle for best results.

Use just enough pressure to feel relief, but not so much that you leave marks all over your skin. The scraping motion will leave your skin a bit red and flushed due to the increased circulation, but it should subside within minutes.

Avoid scraping over any open wounds, and only scrape once the wound has healed fully.

This is all up to you! Some people use the Gua Sha only a few seconds a day to massage a few trouble spots, and some people like to use it for long thirty minute massage sessions.

The tutorial video is a good guideline on some ways you can use the Gua Sha, but there's no set routine. Do what feels right for you, and feel free to share what works for you with us!

Yes! Our Gua Sha come with a reusable velvet pouch bag.

After you are done your massage, wash the Gua Sha with soap and water, and dry it off with a towel. Place the Gua Sha back in the velvet pouch that it came with and store in a safe place.

Do not use your Gua Sha if it is chipped or broken. Our Gua Sha is made of delicate Bian Stone, so take care not to drop it on hard surfaces and always store it in the velvet protective pouch that it came with when not in use.

If your Gua Sha arrived damage, please contact us as soon as possible at, and we'd be more than happy to replace it for you!
