Facial Gua Sha 60 min Massage is a type of muscle fascia release massage technique discovered more then 2000 years ago in China, performed with the use of a handheld tool made of jade crystal. This gentle facial massage consists of a relaxing, repetitive glide-like motion, using slight pressure along specific acupuncture pressure points on the face, neck and chest, and upwards directionality. The jade tool massages and stimulates the meridians that follow nerve and lymphatic pathways along the skin which increase blood flow and stimulates the lymphatic system, providing endless health and beauty results.
