Jade Facial Tool Gua sha Annes Apothecary
Gua sha is a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine.
In fact, modern research shows Gua sha produces an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua sha treatment.
Jade means purity or purification. This stone and shape was specifically designed to activate the body's natural healing abilities, increase circulation and stimulate the skin by sending nutrients to starved areas.
As a beauty treatment, this technique is easy to perform, inexpensive and very powerful.

I love the gua shua tool, it really helps with drainage and uplifts my facial muscles allowing my face to appear more toned!
Purchased this for my brother, he loves it! Really great quality and the size is perfect.
If you've been curious about trying out this tool for a while, I say go for it! I use it for so much more than my face. I massage my neck and shoulders, even my legs. It eases my sinus pressure and tension headaches. Another plus is how easy it is to clean before each use; warm soapy water or a disinfecting wipe if I'm lazy. I watched a YouTube video on how to use it best, and I love to incorporate it in my daily routine
I add mine into the fridge. I can't say it's magic or anything but if you use facial tools I do really like this one. It glides easy and fits well in the hand. ONE THING- if you want cold put it in the FREEZER for some time before use it doesn't hold it's coldness for long. It's nice and solid. I would say the price is what got me. But it is Jade so.
The product itself is beautiful, and by the way it feels, you can tell that it is well made. It feels amazing on the skin and reduced my dark circles in the matter of one night!
