Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese wellness and beauty technique that uses a facial tool made of natural stone that is gently scraped across the skin to smooth away muscle tension, encourage healthy circulation and lymphatic drainage.
In the video below, Wellness guru @HelloNaturalMaven walks us through her step-by-step Gua Sha practice to help relax the facial muscles and reduce the discomfort of TMJ.
This technique is also great for anyone who finds themselves clenching their teeth during times of stress and even those who grind their teeth at night.
Other Gus Sha benefits include promoting healthy lymphatic drainage, the break up of fascia and improved blood circulation to the skin tissue.
