Gua Sha is a tradition in TCM (traditional chinese medicine)! 

There are many ways to use Gua Sha tools/stones and one is Self-Massage on the face and throat areas.  There many benefits, including lymphatic drainage – so important for maintaining healthy circulation and detoxing.

Another excellent and time honored application involves self massage on the face and throat areas.  It’s important to first apply high quality oils and/or creams to lubricate the skin so that when you use your preferred stone, it will easily glide across your skin.  With the grooved part of the stone, one starts at the mid line of the face and sweeps upwards and outwards toward the ear.  Doing this for about 30 to 60 seconds per day brings circulation, toning, smoothing and strengthening of your skin, as well as helping to rejuvenate your skin.  Your cheeks will appear pink and toned afterwards.  It’s a wonderful feeling and great to know that we can practice this form of self care…. at such a low cost!  Please send us a message if you have any questions about this:

It bears repeating that pure water is the big missing link when it comes to optimizing your health, including that of your largest organ………your skin!

It is a fact that our cellular absorption from the nutrients we consume, including water, diminishes as we get older.  To compensate, one can apply it topically in various forms to restore our skin to a healthy level of hydration and nourishment.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is equally important when it comes to skin rejuvenation!  When combined with other wholesome and organic ingredients, as featured in the products of this blog, one can restore suppleness, plumpness and volume to the skin.  HA is known to bind water to collagen and to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as it retains water.  Hence, one can experience a more youthful appearance and younger looking skin……….something that most of us want as we get older!
