Get Your Gua Sha On: The Secret To Healthy Skin

Get Your Gua Sha On: The Secret To Healthy Skin


Gua Sha, pronounced “gwah-sha,” may sound like a made-up word, but it’s a centuries-old Chinese practice that’s becoming all the rage in the beauty industry. This traditional technique involves using a flat, handheld tool to scrape the skin in long, sweeping motions. But what’s the point, and why would you want to scrape your face? Well, let me tell you all about it. Gua Sha is a gentle and non-invasive way to improve your skin’s overall texture and appearance.


So, why exactly is Gua Sha good for your skin? For starters, it helps to increase blood flow and circulation, which can help give you that coveted healthy glow. The technique also works to smooth out any fine lines or wrinkles, making your skin look more youthful and refreshed. Our skilled estheticians at Icebox use a massaging technique on your face with a Gua Sha tool. With this treatment massage, you’re also encouraging lymphatic drainage, which can help detoxify your skin, flush inflammation, and improve its overall health. You can find Gua Sha included in our Glow & Flow specialty facial.


One of the best things about Gua Sha is that it’s customizable to your needs. If you’re dealing with puffiness or dark circles around your eyes, we can focus on that area and use the tool to gently massage it until the puffiness goes down. If you have tension in your jaw or brow, we can use the tool to help release that tension and ease any headaches. And if you have specific areas on your face where you’d like to see more lift or definition, just let us know and we can use the tool to help sculpt those areas over time. It’s the perfect booster to add to any of our Icebox Skin facials.


And don’t just take my word for it – there are tons of Gua Sha enthusiasts out there who swear by the technique. Some even say it’s helped with everything from sinus congestion to TMJ pain. But even if you’re not dealing with any physical ailments, the benefits of Gua Sha on your skin are worth taking note of. With regular use and our curated Icebox facials, you can expect to see a clearer complexion, smoother texture, and a noticeable improvement in skin elasticity.


So, whether you’re a skincare newbie or a seasoned facial pro, there’s no time like the present to get your Gua Sha on. As a $15 booster at Icebox, it’s an affordable and easy way to take your Icebox facials to the next level.
