Getting To Know Gua Sha


For the person who’s already into jade rolling, the next big thing in massage tools is a pocket-size gua sha tool ($25) for increased circulation and improved lymphatic drainage. I keep seeing the heart-shaped rose quartz ones pop up on Instagram this year and then Dr. Elizabeth Trattner used one on me during my first visit and I was like, “Helloooooo improved jaw line!”

The deal-io? Gua Sha is a treatment technique involving pulling a rose quartz stone along the skin, stimulating the skin layers to reduce puffiness, promote anti-aging, flush out tissues via lymphatic drainage (AKA the body’s natural garbage disposal system).

And now you know!
