BLACK OBSIDIAN GUA SHA

Black Obsidian cleanses negative energy from our bodies, minds, and spirit.  It’s born out of fast cooling lava, which flows from volcanos. It may also draw out the tension and stress from the body and replace it with relaxation and calm.

Due to natural variations in stone, every hand-carved gua sha is unique in pattern and color. The stones + crystals we use are authentic and natural. 

ORIGIN 

Practiced in (TCM) Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years, Gua sha is a massage technique that helps increase circulation and lymphatic flow in your face + body.

FACIAL gua sha helps to improve the function of the skin which helps with many skin conditions; Deep lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, rosacea, acne, acne scars, pigmentation, dark circles & puffiness. It retrains the muscles of the face, relaxing them, strengthening, lifting, and toning. If you’ve ever felt tension on your face, around your jaw, or between your brows, gua sha might be the tool you’re missing. 

BODY gua sha aims to move energy, known as qi or chi, around the body. The treatment involves using a gua sha tool to rub the skin in long strokes, applying enough pressure to create mild redness if DIY. Gua sha may help to break down scar tissue and connective tissue, improving movement in the joints. Gua sha is also known for helping reduce the appearance of cellulitis.

OAKËI TIPS: 

  • Relax, take deep breaths, and move slowly with intention.
  • Hold the stone flat and connected to the skin with light to medium pressure.

  • Drink plenty of water before, during, and after gua sha.
  • Practice this ritual as often as daily or 3-5 times a week.
  • For best results, perform each movement 5-10 times per area
