When using Calmlish Sculpt Gua Sha® you’ll work with the fluid within the skin to contour and sculpt your face back to its youthful, toned look. Sculpt is perfect for reducing the accumulation of lymphatic fluid, as well as reducing tension, to make your face look more toned, lifted and tight.
Clear quartz is a multi purpose crystal that transforms and clarifies all skin types. Clear quartz is the ideal crystal to program with your own unique intentions and skin wishes. This stone is often recommend as the “beginner’s gua sha”, since the energy is agreeable with all.
Clear quartz is also ideal for super sensitive, reactive and allergic complexions that relax with the cooling calmness of clear quartz.
Please note that all our crystals are unique and therefore there will be variations in color, shape, structure, surface etc
The 5 edges of the Sculpt Gua Sha each work with different techniques and areas of the face to sculpt and tone.
1 • The textured edge
The textured edge is used for increasing flow to the skin surface to promote a healthy glow, as well as to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
2 • The small straight edge
With this edge you can drain away eye bags by gently placing the edge just below the eye at the inner corner and with feather-light pressure gliding the gua sha out to the outer corner of the eye. Imagine you are pulling a small water balloon under the skin.
This edge can also be used just below the eyebrow to lift and gently stretch the eyebrow muscle. You do this by placing the edge right beneath the eyebrow and gently pushing up on the muscle to stretch it in an upwards motion.
3 • The curve
Use this curve to hug each side of the eyebrow, each side of the cheekbone, and each side of the jawline to release build up tension and fluid and to tone the skin.
4 • The long edge
Use this edge for the classic gua sha scraping technique to stretch and lift the connective tissue and therefore the skin.
5 • The warped edge
We call this edge the lymphatic drainage edge, as the warped line creates a small vacuum when pulling it gently, with feather-light pressure, against the skin. This movement helps drain away fluid retention. It is important that you keep the gua sha as flat as possible on the skin, so that the edge is constantly touching the. Make sure your pressure is light and your pace is slow. Imagine you are pulling a water balloon under the skin.
WHEN NOT TO GUA SHA
Gua Sha massage is not ideal when you have:
- Infected skin
- Damaged skin
- Skin cancer
- Swollen lymph nodes
If you are in doubt, always ask your doctor. Use with caution if you are taking blood thinning medication. If you have any type of blood disorders, or have extra sensitive skin due to illness and medicine, talk your doctor first.
CAN I USE MY GUA SHA WHILE I'M PREGNANT?
It is safe to perform Gua Sha massage on your face while pregnant, but ask your doctor first before doing Gua Sha on your body, as this treatment is detoxifying.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY GUA SHA?
You should wash your Gua Sha with soap and water after each use.
Crystals absorb energy, so we also recommend cleaning your Gua Sha crystal energetically with sea salt baths. Fill a bowl with 1.25 cups of water and 1 tbs sea salt. Place the Gua Sha in the bowl and let it be there for up to 24 hours. If you have more than one Gua Sha crystal to clean, clean them separately, not in the same salt bath.
The metal on the glow rollers doesn't tolerate salt water, so to energy cleanse the glow rollers place them on a bed of dry sea salt for up to 24 hours.
HOW DO I RECHARGE MY CRYSTALS?
You can place your crystal Gua Sha tools in the windowsill during a full moon to charge them. You can also hold your Gua Sha in your left hand and place your right hand above the crystal and set a healing intention from your hand to the crystal, mentally reciting the properties you would like from it. Remember energy flows where intention goes.
HOW OFTEN CAN I USE MY GUA SHA?
There are no rules, but for visible results, we recommend you start by doing Gua Sha 5 times a week. Once you have your desired results you can maintain them by doing Gua Sha 3 times a week or as needed.
DO I NEED TO USE ANY SPECIFIC PRODUCTS WITH MY GUA SHA?
It's important you use an oil appropriate for your skin type or a balm that will provide glide for the Gua Sha tool.
WHICH CRYSTAL SHOULD I CHOOSE?
Choose the crystal that you feel intuitively attracted to or use the crystal descriptions for guidance.
