the benefits of crystal gua sha and rollers
Why Clear Quartz?
Clear Quartz is known as the “Master Healer” as it’s the most powerful healing crystal on the planet. It absorbs , stores, releases, and regulates energy and is useful for unblocking it. Clear Quartz stimulates the immune system and brings the body back into balance. It is used to amplify positive energy and intentions. Clear quartz also has a very high silica content, an important mineral for skin health, so it’s thought to improve the overall wellbeing of your skin when used as a roller or gua sha.
What is a Gua Sha and Face Roller?
Both the Clear Quartz Roller and Gua Sha are designed to promote lymphatic flow of the skin. They help drain puffiness, unwanted toxins, contour the face, decrease eye bags and help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Originally an ancient Chinese healing technique, a gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping the skin with a small tool. The shape of the gua sha is perfectly designed for ‘sculpting’ the muscles in the face, by creating pressure and stretching muscles simultaneously to stimulate. The face roller is massage tool designed to roll the natural crystal over the skin as a soothing treatment that helps to quickly stimulate blood flow and drain puffiness.
