To reduce external age-related changes, get rid of edema, prolong the youthfulness of the skin, try Guasha facial massage. The lymphatic drainage procedure is carried out on the basis of ancient Chinese technology and is characterized by the use of special plates (scrapers) made of natural stone.
What is Guasha massage
In traditional Chinese medicine, great importance is given to the human energy channel. Channels-meridians with circulating “live” energy have an external and internal outlet. The ends of the meridian are characterized by the location of biologically active points. By acting on these points from the outside, the massage specialist influences the functioning of internal organs, improves the movement of lymphatic fluid, and accelerates blood circulation.
Scrapers made of stone: agate, onyx, jade act as a massager and an auxiliary tool. Sometimes the master uses a roller to influence the reflex points.
There are many acupuncture points on the human face. Therefore, the massage therapist’s manipulations have a cosmetic and therapeutic effect. Problems associated with improper metabolism disappear, dull skin color changes to healthy. The face begins to look more well-groomed.
