The Obsidian Gua Sha
The massage with the Gua Sha stone is your daily self-care ritual for glowing skin and relaxation. The ancient Chinese beauty technique helps you to accentuate the contours of your face, relieve tension and bring out your natural glow.
The massage with the Gua Sha stone is very simple and only takes a few minutes: put a few drops of facial oil on your cleansed face and gently pull the stone outwards from the centre of your face.
WHY IT’S GOOD FOR YOU
The massage with the Gua Sha stone
- effectively relieves tension in your face,
- stimulates your blood circulation and lymph flow,
- removes toxins,
- increases the elasticity of your skin,
- highlights the natural contours of your face, and
- promotes your natural glow.
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL
The ruhi Gua Sha stone is made of natural obsidian of the highest quality. Due to its special shape, it perfectly reaches the contours and pressure points of your face.
Each Gua Sha stone is made by hand and is therefore unique. Shape and colour may differ slightly from the picture shown here.
The stone is delivered in a hand-printed canvas bag made of 100% cotton.
THE POWER OF THE BLACK OBSIDIAN
The beautiful, black obsidian is considered a particularly powerful stone. It arises from volcanic lava and is used in naturopathy to promote blood circulation, relieve tension and blockages, and strengthen connective tissue. In addition, it is known to increase the absorption of vitamins C and D.
This makes black obsidian the ideal stone for your Gua Sha facial massage – especially in combination with the right facial care! On an energetic level, the stone is best known for its anti-anxiety effect. A true multi-talent that should not be missing on any beauty shelf.
Preparation: Thoroughly cleanse your face and apply a skin oil of your choice. Use light pressure with 3 to 5 repetitions on each side.
Eyes: Use the tips of the Gua Sha stone, place it in the inner corner of your eyelids and under your eyes, and glide with light pressure towards your temples.
Cheeks and chin: Use the wide, inward-curved side, start at the chin and glide up towards your hairline. Go up to your mouth and nose and stroke towards your ears.
Forehead: Using the broad outwardly or inwardly curved end of the stone, place it in the centre of your forehead and stroke horizontally to your temple and up to your hairline.
Neck: Use the wide outwardly curved end of the Gua Sha stone, start at the base of your neck and slowly move the stone up towards your chin.
Cleaning and care: Clean your Gua Sha stone with a damp cloth and let it dry.

ABOUT THE RITUAL
The Gua Sha treatment is a thousand-year-old massage and drainage method of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In Chinese, Gua stands for “scraping” and Sha means “acute illness”.
With the help of the Gua Sha stone, certain areas of the skin are scraped. As a result, reflex zones and so-called meridians, channels through which the life energy Chi flows, are activated. In TCM, massage is mainly used to prevent diseases, to stimulate blood and lymph flow, and to expel toxins.
Die Verpackung ist sehr gut und die Lieferung ging auch super schnell. Benutze das Produkt regelmäßig. Eine Ergänzung wäre vielleicht eine Anleitung zur Nutzung bzw. Welche Möglichkeiten zur Anwendung es gibt und was man beachten sollte. Das wäre dann ein netter Zusatz, aber kein muss :)
Ich benutze das immer morgens mit einem Gesichtsöl. Mein Gesicht ist danach sehr glowy 😍
Ein Geschenk für meine Tochter und sie ist so begeistert von der weichen und so tief wirksamen Möglichkeit, ihr Gesicht erstrahlen zu lassen!
Habe schon die Massagebürste für das Gesicht, die ich täglich benutze. Den Obsidian Gua Sha benutze ich abends um mein Bakuchiol Ölserum von ruhi in die Haut einzuarbeiten. Klappt super, habe den Eindruck dass ich ein noch besseres Ergebnis auf diese Weise erziele. Ausserdem ist es eine wohltuende Massage am Abschluss des Tages. ❤️
