Skin health is closely related to the functionality of your lymphatic system as it plays a major role in detoxification, and it can cause fluid retention and puffiness if it is stagnant from facial procedures, acne, and congestion. Sometimes our lymphatic system needs a little extra love to get going. Since it doesn’t have a pump of its own, our lymphatic system counts on us to manually stimulate it. Lymphatic massage helps your lymph nodes unclog to get your skin glowing and reduce swelling – especially after facial surgery. Gua Sha is recommended particularly after procedures such as jawline contouring, facelift, and EmbraceRF.
The 3 most common methods of lymphatic massage include manual manipulation, Gua Sha, and use of a jade roller. While all are beneficial, Gua Sha stand outs because it provides even pressure over a large surface area. The jade gua sha tools come in multiple shapes which are all fairly simple, making them easy to clean, while also being able to maneuver through through all the contours and crevices of the face and neck.
There are numerous tutorial videos online to help you as you learn more advanced techniques. You can also find Gua Sha tools of various materials and shapes to fit your budget and lifestyle. Using these tools in your beauty ritual is a part of caring for yourself and connecting to your needs!
