Learn How To Do The Gua Sha Facial Treatment At Home

When I first heard of Gua Sha, I thought it was some kind of old practice of skin rejuvenation or an ultimate spa experience like an Ayurvedic treatment. Turns out, I was a little right. Gua Sha tools are like the famous jade rollers, which has become one of a skincare junkie’s favorite form of skincare and self-care. I’m sure you’ve seen this tool somewhere along the beauty aisle and it comes in different shapes, sizes, and material. Did you know that just a few minutes of Gua Sha treatment facial every day can improve your skin and clarity?

What is Gua Sha?

Learn How To Do The Gua Sha Facial Treatment At Home

Gua Sha is a traditional East Asian and Chinese technique that is used in order to invite well-being, proper circulation and toxic removal in the body. The Gua Sha tool is used gently on the skin of the face, and a little aggressive on the skin of the body. Basically, Gua means to scrape and Sha means to sand. This practice has been used for thousands of years and the tools that are used vary. From animal bone, Chinese soup spoon to rose quartz and other gemstones, you can choose which works for you the best.

What is Gua Sha for?

In traditional Chinese Medicine, it says that the entire channel of the organ system unites on the face. It also pre-dates from acupuncture. It says that the stroke pattern awakens the meridian lines or lifeforce path in order to activate the body’s natural healing system. For our skin, Gua Sha encourages the production of collagen and helps sculpt and tone the face shape. It promises to help the skin become radiant since it can increase blood circulation in the area. It also allows the inflammation to drain and for the muscles to release tension. Basically, it’s like a massage but a lot gentle and aesthetic in nature.

It is said that the Gua Sha’s effect is skin deep. Because the meridian lines are involved, organs like the stomach, spleen, liver, heart, and kidneys also receive rejuvenation. If you work your way over the area of the face that is connected to the kidneys, such as down the meridian line of the kidney, you can release toxins and help it relax. Thus, enabling it to function at optimal capacity.

Here’s a quick breakdown of what Gua Sha can do for you:

  • Aids in diminishing dark spots and hyperpigmentation in your skin.
  • Eliminates dark circles around your eyes.
  • Prevents and lessens sagging skin.
  • Reduces wrinkles.
  • Brightens the complexion.
  • Can relieve or heal rosacea.
  • Helps in the absorption of your skincare.
  • Speeds up the recovery and healing time of breakouts and pimples.
  • Can relieve migraines.
  • Can even be an alternative to face-lift surgery but only when practiced on a regular basis and when you’re receiving treatments from a licensed practitioner.

Step By Step Procedure of Gua Sha

  1. Start with cleaning your face and washing your hands. After patting your face dry with a clean washcloth, use a facial mist that has hydrosol like OSEA’s Sea Vitamin Boost. Hydrosol is the perfect base to drive the oil, in which you’ll apply next.
  2. Apply facial oil.  My favorite is also from OSEA, which is their Undaria Argan oil. Apply it starting on your forehead downwards. This activates movement in skin and tissues which is a great prep stage before the Gua Sha.
  3. Warm your Gua Sha tool. You can do this by slightly rubbing it between your hands and adding a little facial oil so it doesn’t tug on your skin.
  4. Sweep up your neck on both sides. Do this very gently over your Adam’s apple.
  5. Sweep up under your chin, from the middle of your face outwards to your earlobe while keeping your tool flat.
  6. Sweep from the middle of your chin over your jawline, towards the back of your earlobe. Gently jiggle at your ear to encourage fluid to drain down the neck to the lymph nodes.
  7. Sweep underneath your cheekbone, towards your hairline. Lightly jiggle the tool at your hairline.

  • Gua Sha is a very relaxing technique. I usually do this at night along with aromatherapy and it works really well for me. I feel like I’m able to sleep well.

    • Rebecca Givens says:

      Me too, Krystal Rose! It’s like a spa night every day.

  • Opal Greene says:

    That video was very easy to follow. Thank you for including that. I was a little confused just reading through the instruction. Got my jade gua sha tool in Amazon and it works amazing.

  • Elsa Morales says:

    I always see these gua sha tools in dollar stores and I thought it was some sort of undereye patch or something. Definitely checking it out next time.?

    • Rebecca Givens says:

      There’s no problem in using cheaper alternatives for Gua Sha tools, Elsa. Just make sure that there’s no sharp edge or bad trimmings, especially if it’s plastic and it’s not made from gemstones or animal bones. The face has very delicate skin!

  • Tabitha Horvath says:

    That’s a lot of claims for a very small tool. But if you really look into it, it’s a massage tool and massages really do improve circulation.

  • Kathryn Matthews says:

    I saw this in KORA Organics. The one that they have is the rose quartz. They call it a beauty tool instead of a Gua Sha tool but I guess that’s the purpose of it, they just didn’t care to explain how great the benefits were.

  • Sounds really fancy but it does work. Been trying this for a week now since I was curious about natural remedies and natural methods for a youthful skin.?

    • Rebecca Givens says:

      This is why I also recommend this. It’s very natural, no products needed aside from your very own skin care. Just a good Gua Sha tool and you’re all good!

  • It’s the first time I’m hearing of Gua Sha but I’ve heard of jade rollers and rose quartz rollers. I kinda like that more though because it seems non-abrasive.

  • Googled this and it scared me because others got bruises over this. Is that for real??

  • The jade tool is very common but I don’t even know the difference. Is there even a difference?

  • Emilie Dock says:

    Loved this. I am going home and giving myself an at-home gua sha massage.

  • Maria Hargrove says:

    What should I apply after the gua sha? Do I apply a moisturizer?

  • Sarah Rothman says:

    I did it with coconut oil and credit card. I had the smoothest skin for weeks after doing it. It’s time to redo.

    Where can we buy the gua sha tool??

    I really need a machine for making puree. I don’t have any at home and I can already tell that dates will be great as toppings for salads and other baked goodies.

  • Madison Doyle says:

    Learned so much in this article, thanks! This can really turn my whole skincare routine in a whole new level.

  • I will really try this. It’s nice to know that our face is open to suggestions so it’s important that we always use a lifting motion whenever we would apply or touch our face.

  • Estelle Doriss says:

    I should teach my hubby to do this to me. We can have Gua Sha nights! ?

  • Sara Marshall says:

    There’s no harm in trying this since it doesn’t really involve anything other than a tool for gentle massage. I wonder if I can use essential oils if it’s done on the body?

    I’ve never heard of this before but it seems interesting! Won’t hurt to give it a go I guess.

  • Elizabeth Reagan says:

    Quick question. I’m assuming with this technique there is a bit of lymphatic drainage happening. Would you also use a downward motion on the side of the neck to help flush what you’ve moved out of the sinuses?

  • Kathleen Straus says:

    Magnificent! Thank you for being so down to earth with your teaching. I love it!!!

    Thanks for sharing. I just bought the facial gua sha. And I am going to try it once it arrives.

  • Mary Jansen says:

    I used to have very dark under-eye bags and I tried every product on the market in hopes of treating them. Eventually I just accepted that they were there to stay, until I discovered gua sha. It literally drained away the darkness, so to speak. Lol. Now they’re slowly creeping back though.

  • Anita Smith says:

    Hi! Thank you so much for this one, really helpful! I also have a night time routine with gua Sha massage, but I do something different. Instead of going downwards with the tool on the neck, I go upwards because I feel like I should massage against the gravity. What do you think about it? Thank you!

  • Kelly Bretz says:

    Loved this! I’m an acu student, so I have this tool, but have never applied it to myself – thank you for the inspiration!

  • Eve Moran says:

    I am 61 and always looking for natural connected healing. You are pretty amazing for one so young. Thank you for being such a wonderful healer and sharing it!

  • Jill Thomas says:

    I’ve been using both jade roller and this for a while now and prefer Gua Sha. I’ve seen more change in my skin with Gua Sha. I do love the idea of using the jade roller with a sheet mask!

  • Signe Fuller says:

    If you would like more fat, plumpness in the face, do you think this might not be good to use?

  • I did this with coconut oil and a credit card after reading the Romans did this. Then found it’s called ‘gua sha’ so it’s good to see it done. I had the smoothest skin for weeks after doing it. It’s time for a redo.

  • Oh wow this sounds so comfortable. A good exercise for the face muscles. I need to try this out.

  • So is it basically breaking up the fascia? Is it the oil that helps with the “bumps” to guage the area that needs more work? First time seeing this, very interesting!

  • The good thing about gua sha is that you can do it with whatever material available. My grandparents used to use coin and left over cooking oil to perform gua sha during the war.

  • I get this done on my back and I just finished my monthly session and my back is really bruised.

  • Marilyn Blackwell says:

    I get this done on my back and I just finished my monthly session and my back is really bruised.

  • Donna Black says:

    Anyways, how do you take care of your neck skin?? No wrinkles! I’m 19 years old but mine got wrinkles more and more

  • Stefanie Borelli says:

  • Donita Wright says:

    Been using my gua sha for about 2 years now. I’m 38 and I think it’s really improved my skin tone and texture ?❤️?you have gorgeous skin! Wish I’d been more proactive and avoided the California ☀️ sun !

  • Clementine Lilly says:

    I would not recommend either one of these tools for acne prone skin. These tools can cause extra friction on the skin, therefore irritating existing acne and acne prone skin.

  • Suzanne Heise says:

    Gua Sha is a little bit like dry brushing for the face in a sense that it helps with lymphatic drainage when done correctly. It also helps a lot with water retention. My mom and I started doing it a few years ago and felt a big difference. Our faces seem firmer and less puffiness. For reference I’m 27 and my mom is 52

  • Holly Kramer says:

    This really works, it helps improve blood circulation makes skin texture looks finer, really smooth out the skin. The scraping opens up the pores of the face and it’s the best time to apply essence or apply essenced paper mask to your face after the scraping. Face scraping is also good for general health too especially the T-zone area, as they’re reflections of different organs of the body such as lungs, heart and liver etc, improving blood circulation on these areas will also help improving condition of respective organs.

  • Guasha is helpful to increase blood circulation but not lymph drainage, as you actually need to use light as feather pressure to flow it. Once the skin is pressed where there is indentation you are actually pressing the down the lymph system, which is above where your hair root grows!

  • Thank you, that was really helpful!! As for the accupressure points, how long do you have to press them? It can’t work quite that fast, can it?

  • There must be something to this idea! I saw a lady using a CD on edge for same benefit!

  • If it is a lymphatic massage shouldn’t you go downward on your neck ? No offense, I am just curious 🙂

  • Love this! I’ve decided me and my sister are going home and giving ourselves an at home gua sha massage tonight!

  • Could this be used for cellulite or is their something better for stimulating that area. I would love an article on that. I’m pretty fit but that damn cellulite.

  • Great post again! I’ve incorporated the gua sha with one of my facials. I use it regularly on myself 🙂

  • Jessica Barrett says:

  • Rosalva Johnson says:

    You just convinced me to try this, been looking for a new method of lymphatic drainage since I used to do the Tanaka face massage daily.

  • Betty Custer says:

    I was curious so I just tried with my bare hands and the right side of my face just felt lighter it was so good I’ll try to do it more often and hopefully with the tool !

  • Julie Black says:

    I just want to say that I love this article. I have never ever heard of this before but I would really like to try it so I will definitely purchase a facial tool and hope to see an improvement in my skin. THANK you for making this tutorial ☺?

  • Gladys Mielke says:

    Great info! But I’m curious as to why many people do gua sha with the smooth edge of the tools? Like when I see this being done on people’s backs, arms, etc on places like YouTube or Instagram. Should the tool always lay somewhat flat while doing gua sha on the face and neck only? Are you supposed to use the smooth edge of gua sha tools on the back, arms, and legs? Or does this depend on personal preference? Truth be told, I’m very new to this.

  • Ethel Baptiste says:

    This is so helpful! Now I just need to get the tool so I can give it a try 🙂 Thank you!

  • Katherine Swain says:

    ? Very informative post. Looking forward to using these techniques! No wonder your skin is beautiful?

    Do you wash your face with water or soap after guasha before the usual skin routine?

    Fantastic tutorial. I am going to buy one right now. Do you know if this tool will help with acne scars?

  • Debra Hall says:

    What if you have acne or just red irritated skin? I don’t want to make anything worse.

  • Serena Godley says:

    Does it matter which material the tool is made of? They offer jade, rose quartz etc.

  • Monique Miller says:

    Would using this over the neck have a negative impact on the thyroid gland? I have recently been diagnosed with a hyperactive thyroid, and I am nervous to potentially stimulate it even further.

  • Lydia Burke says:

    Really well explained! How often should I be doing this massage? Few times a week? Everyday? AM or PM?

  • Catherine Rosenthal says:

    Love this! Thank you so much for telling us about the secret of Chinese beauty. They never look old.

  • Eula Richard says:

    Thank you so much for this article! It was really thorough and easy to follow. I just recently got a jade roller and a jade gua sha tool and an excited to get started using this technique.

  • Diana Rice says:

    Wow I already have a rose quartz Gua Sha tool. Do I need roller too? What’s the difference between the two?

  • Alvina Esterly says:

    I’m wondering if this affects the symmetry/assymetry of the face. Also if this slims the face down .

  • Emily Crozier says:

    so how come we go up and not down? some places go down for the lymph drainage? or are you supposed to just go up?

  • Deborah Sudduth says:

    I am curious and always learning new things. This evening I am going to do exactly this routine. Can’t wait!

  • Andrea Cottle says:

    Thank you for sharing this knowledge one of the best Guasha articles I’ve seen. Very informative and thorough. Using this for training purposes for my Holistic Skin Care business in the downtown area.

  • Elizabeth Ortega says:

    Very helpful! Does this help to reduce smile lines or wrinkles and how often should I do it? Thanks!

  • Debra Whaley says:

    This is the holy grail of gua sha tutorials. Small question – can we start with the face and then do the neck ? Reason being, sometimes I have heavy neck oil or cream and wouldn’t want that on my acne prone face. Thanks.

  • Veola Sancho says:

    By far the most complete and clinically correct technique. Wonderful education. Thanks you so much!

  • Kaitlyn Liddell says:

    I can attest to this working! I do this daily after a shower and have seen astounding results in fine line reduction. I do each step 10 times utilizing rose water and shea butter (cost effective and works great for my sensitive skin.) apart from the physical benefits this is incredibly meditative.

  • Seen loads of this online and I don’t even know what it does until I saw this. How do I figure out which shape I should choose?

  • Hayley Sorlie says:

    If you’re already investing your skincare, I think it’s great if you invest your time in doing this daily. The benefits are really nice and if it does work, then wow! ?

    The jade rollers actually work similar to this but I think the jade rollers are only for the face (that’s the only place I use it). Compared to this that can be used on your body. Such a small tool with big benefits.

    I haven’t heard of Gua Sha but it really is similar from the rollers. I used that one before but I was having trouble doing it on a regular basis.
