This is a Chinese word that is pronounced as Gwah-Shah. It is defined in two parts — 'Gua' means "scrape" while 'Sha' is said to mean "sand" by some people, while others seem to give it "redness of skin".
We could say it is a method of scraping away disease, fever or some type of sickness from the body generally. However, other words for the term Gua Sha are skin scraping, spooning, or coining.
It is a healing technique taken from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It was a natural therapy using a "spatula" made from buffalo horn to massage the skin.
The Gua Sha tool has been updated over the years and made from better materials such as jade and rose quartz. They massage an area of the body with gentle scraping motions in order to relax stiff muscles while relieving pain and tension, treat certain illnesses, as well as improve blood circulation.
A Gua Sha is a flat tool, made of semi-precious stone, that is used to massage the face.
Green Jade (or feng jade) is the traditional choice for facial rolling and gua sha. Jade is naturally cool to the touch and has a ‘soapstone’ feel to it. It has a long history of use in Chinese medicine and is considered the ultimate gemstone of ancient Chinese beauty treatments.
