Handmade Gua Sha
Handmade in Denmark with Love - Gua Sha from Special Nordic Wood.
The Gua Sha is a sacred self-massage tool (scraping tool).
It helps stimulate circulation, smooth out lymphatic stagnation, and can help alleviate painful constriction in the body. In Ayurveda and Chinese medicine, practitioners use Gua Sha to release blood stagnation, reduce lactic acid build-up, and tenderize tight or bound muscles.
Gua Sha is best used on the skin during or immediately after following oil the skin. It also works great when your skin is wet (in the shower, steam room or bath), on your face, and even over your clothes. It’s a nurturing practice that you can do on your neck, legs, arms, face, etc. Use from your feet to your heart, and from your hands to your heart - in the same direction as your natural lymphatic flow.
This Gua sha is specifically good to everywhere on the body + face.
Wooden Gua Sha’s are light, durable and long lasting. Handmade by Riihannon's man Ivar Nammele.
