5 Expert Tips to maximize your Gua Sha benefits
1. Apply face oil first
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! By using the Gua Sha together with face oils, you'll also encourage the oils to penetrate deeper into the skin, for enhanced moisturization!
2. Hold at 45 degrees
45 degrees is the optimal angle for using the Gua Sha. This angle allows for the tool to effectively contour and sculpt the face at just the right amount of pressure - Not too much, not too little.
3. Use light pressure
Gua Sha should never hurt or cause discomfort. After a Gua Sha massage, your face might become more flushed with a tinge of pink, due to increased blood circulation, but it should never be bruised or red. Use gentle pressure and let the tool glide across your skin.
4. Stroke towards the lymph nodes
The lymphatic system is responsible for removing waste and toxins from the body, so stroking towards the lymph nodes can encourage proper lymphatic drainage. Stimulating lymphatic drainage can improve the appearance of skin, reduce puffiness, and promote a healthy glow!
5. Consistency is key
Gua Sha is not a one-time solution for skin concerns, but rather a technique that requires consistent use to achieve the best results. Daily use can help improve skin elasticity, reduce fine lines, even out skin tone, and stimulate collagen production. To see the benefits of Gua Sha, we recommend incorporating it into your daily or weekly skincare routine.
I love all of the products that I’ve tried so far. The facial and hair oils are exceptional. Using Gua Sha has helped to relieve my migraines and tension headaches. My skin looks a lot better too after just one treatment. My 9 year old son, is a fan as well. Now every night he asks for a Gua Sha massage 😆 Highly recommended!!

GREAT THERAPEUTIC TOOL
I use my gua sha for relieving tension in my forehead, scalp and neck areas. I'm prone to headaches so I had been massaging with my fingers before, but the gua sha works 10x better. When you first try it you realize it's super high quality stone. The weight, stiffness, and smoothness let it glide over your skin with the exact amount of pressure you want. I love the scoop edge the best!
I'm usually pretty bad with self care but I'm so glad I tried this out! I didn't expect that much tension in my face/head area. Just imagine how good a scalp massage feels, but for your face. I've been using it for my neck and scalp as well. The scoop edge really helps with getting the perfect angle. It's just so wonderful and I can definitely see this becoming a habit. Not to mention the benefits for your skin. Highly recommend!
GUA SHA IS AMAZING!
The tool by Velvette has helped me relieve tension in my jaw, and overall inflammation in my face.
I already love Velvette's face oil so this is the best all in 1 kit.

FIRST TIME USING A GUA SHA AND IT WORKS!
I purchased the Gua sha and face oil kit and I'm soooooo happy! The gua sha tool is amazing. This is my first time using a gua sha and I can feel the difference. The facial oils are the best oils I've ever used. They are so nourishing. My skin has never been better.

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.
