How Body Contouring with a Gua Sha Works

Using a Gua Sha promotes lymphatic drainage, reduces inflammation, and improves blood flow. Initially, incorporating a Gua Sha into your evening routine may seem tedious, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes an essential and rewarding practice.

How to Use Gua Sha for Body Contouring

To effectively use Gua Sha for body contouring, follow these steps:

  1. Apply a body oil or moisturiser to the area you will be treating. This helps the Gua Sha tool glide smoothly over the skin and prevents irritation. We recommend pairing with our AFTER oil.
  2. Hold the Gua Sha tool at a 15-degree angle to your skin. Using gentle to medium pressure, scrape the tool in upward and outward strokes. Focus on areas like the thighs, buttocks, arms, and abdomen. Repeat each stroke several times, ensuring consistent pressure. Be mindful of sensitive areas and avoid using excessive force.
  3. Repeat multiple times over and for optimal results. Repeat up to 3-4 times per week.

Benefits of Gua Sha Body Contouring

  • Unlike surgical body contouring methods, Gua Sha is non-invasive and involves no downtime.
  • Gua Sha not only improves physical appearance but also promotes overall health and well-being by enhancing circulation and lymphatic function.
  • The results from Gua Sha are subtle and natural-looking, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a gradual improvement in body contours.

Body contouring with a Gua Sha is an accessible, natural method to enhance your body’s appearance while promoting overall health. By stimulating lymphatic drainage, improving circulation, breaking down fascia, and promoting collagen production, Gua Sha offers a holistic approach to body sculpting. With regular use, you can enjoy smoother, firmer skin and a more toned appearance, all from the comfort of your home. 

We love using the body Gua Sha and are so happy to be able to have this available to our ed&i babes. By using Gua Sha on your body you release tension in the fascia, helping to redistribute fat under the skin creating a more even, glowy look to the skin.
