Gua Sha is a face scraping technique based on an ancient healing technique. Originally, to obtain 'Sha'—redness that encourages the skin to heal itself. "Gua" means to scrape, while "sha" means sand, referring to the red spots that occasionally appear on the skin afterward.

The key point is to scrape the skin (commonly the upper back) to invigorate blood flow, release heat-toxins, stimulate lymphatic drainage, activate various points of the body, and bring helpful cells to the area by stimulating an immune response.

Originally a body treatment, Gua Sha has since been adapted to be used in facial therapies, with the scraping motion evolving to a gentler gliding technique.

Gua sha facial massage is a method that promotes lymphatic drainage, which helps to eliminate bloating caused by interstitial fluid (fluid trapped under your skin that needs to be released to your lymph system). In other words, gua sha facial Singapore is good for you—and could have some additional benefits to your


Before we delve into the practical aspects of Gua Sha, it's essential to appreciate its rich history. Although the Gua Sha massage technique is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, it has also been used in Japan for centuries.

In Japan, Gua Sha is known as “kashin”, and was initially used as a form of healing, aimed at addressing various ailments by scraping the skin to release blocked toxins and energy. Kashin was used by the samurai to relieve muscle tension and improve circulation after training, and also by geishas to improve their skin and complexion.

Of course, Gua Sha has adapted and evolved over time. It has transcended its therapeutic roots to become a cherished ritual that not only enhances the skin but also nurtures the soul.


So far research indicates face gua sha may work as follows: 

  • Improve blood flow to the treated area: A small 2007 study found that gua sha facial Singapore may improve microcirculation, aka blood circulation in small blood vessels, for about 25 minutes after treatment. 
  • Reduce puffiness: Applying light strokes or movements on the face can help keep the lymph fluid moving, which may reduce puffiness and inflammation.
  • Minimize wrinkles: A 2020 case study found that gua sha facial massage may improve wrinkles and fine lines, but more studies are needed to investigate this benefit further.

While face gua sha may lead to improvements in the skin's appearance, results are often temporary. For instance, your cheekbones may look more sculpted after a round of gua sha facial massage, but will usually puff up again the next morning. That's because when you lie down to sleep, water can collect in the face and cause a mild swelling due to gravity.


The benefits of Gua Sha Facial have been reaped in TCM for years and through generations. When using gua sha for facial massage, you could experience several benefits.

1. Promotes lymphatic drainage

The scraping motions used in a face gua sha massage help to aid lymphatic drainage as you take time to work on the different areas of your face. You’re in complete control, so you can decide to use light or heavier pressure. 

2. Reduce tension and pain

TCM has used gua sha facial tool to help alleviate tension and pain for thousands of years. Adjusting the pressure you apply with your gua sha facial tool stone in different problem areas of the neck or face can help to reduce tension and pain. 

3. Improves circulation

As well as promoting lymphatic drainage, face gua sha massage can help to improve circulation. With improved circulation comes a brighter complexion as toxins are shifted and cleared from the body. 

4. Relieves puffiness

Gua Sha's gentle massage can help drain excess fluid from the face, reducing morning puffiness and promoting a more sculpted appearance.
