Gua Sha is an ancient TCM (TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE) practice used to move qi (energy) through the body.
It was originally used on the body to relieve symptoms of illness, and items such as coins or tin lids were used to perform the "scraping" before stones became common practice.
Facial Gua Sha is known to relieve stagnation, muscle tension, increase blood flow, oxygen flow, and lymph flow, which helps to nourish the skin cells and can help with acne, rosacea, inflammation, fine lines, etc.
The benefits also extend to the scalp to promote scalp and hair health through the practice of massaging the Gua Sha Comb, either alone or with a scalp oil, to stimulate the hair follicles, bring oxygen and nutrient flow, and support healthy cell turnover.
Not only does this practice relieve stress and feel amazing, but studies have shown that daily scalp massage can actually help with hair regrowth, thickness, and overall scalp health. Pair these results with the healing properties of copper, a Stimulating Scalp oil, and you have the perfect combination.
Brass is made from a combination of copper and zinc. There is a significant amount of copper in brass. Anti-bacterial in nature, Copper is a relieving mineral known to be a powerful conductor of energy and helps promote circulation and purification. Copper is an essential nutrient to humans and considered to purify and increase energy. It can reduce visible symptoms associated with inflammation due to it's ability to draw or "disburse" heat from tissues. There is also evidence that copper can promote collagen & elastin, strengthening and renewing the skin and boosting hyalauronic acid which visibly plumps and hydrates skin. All of these benefits make copper the ideal material to practice gentle body stimulation.
