You probably have heard of gua sha or even tried it on your body in a TCM clinic. This is a traditional Chinese therapy that involves scraping your skin with a tool and is said to improve micro-circulation and improve your qi so that inflammation can be reduced and healing can occur.

Did you know that gua sha facial is a variant of this technique and is gaining popularity because of how it is able to achieve several skincare benefits?

You may associate gua sha with red, scary-looking marks for the TCM body treatments. Good news: gua sha facials aren’t the same. While they use a scraping tool and works using the same concept, they are a lot gentler and hardly leave behind any marks, if at all. Gua sha facials are sought after for their ability to deliver firming and lifting benefits, and to improve complexion’s overall radiance.

If you want to give gua sha facial treatment a try, consider one of these salons that offer them. We even reviewed one of them to find out what it’s like!
