One is for health and one is for beauty.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine we use Gua Sha, which roughly translates to ‘scraping’, for headaches, oncoming cough or cold, hay fever or other types of illnesses. We use normally a buffalo horn or porcelain spoon to scrape your neck, your back and your issue of pain. This comes up in big red purple marks around the treatment area.
Jade Gua Sha for the face doesn’t tend to mark the face like the health treatment does. We use a different style of scraping technique to enhance your lymphatic function, your collagen production and make you look brighter. This facial rejuvenation treatment is excellent for improving muscle tone, circulation, alleviating headaches and repairing the skin. We even use this treatment for assisting people who have had botox or another injectable and need help to settle the injectible in.
Two different treatment tools, two different uses.
