Gua Sha Massages in Cape Town
Gua Sha Facial Massage, Lift and Lymph Detox
A Gua Sha Facial massage is a technique designed to relieve tension in the muscles of the face. It is a technique used to boost blood circulation and optimize skin plumpness, resulting in a fresh, healthy glow and visible reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The pressure using cool quartz stone helps break up fascia, the connective tissue that hugs muscles but can sometimes interfere with optimal circulation.
Wondering if you should request a reservation for a Gua Sha face massage? Check out some of the benefits below to learn why a Gua Sha face massage might be a great choice for you.
Benefits of Gua Sha:
• Increased blood flow. Increased blood flow means plumping up the facial tissue and muscle resulting in a smoother appearance of the skin.
• Reduced stress. The coolness of the quartz stone implements used in the Gua Sha technique stimulates the blood flow and has a very calming effect on the tiny, but very powerful muscles in the face. The combination of the hands-on attention and the environment should relax you, lowering the level of the stress hormone cortisol in your body. Lowering your stress level offers a surprising number of additional benefits, including reducing or eliminating tension headaches, giving you more energy, and allowing you to get a better night’s sleep.
• Improved immune system. One other great benefit of reducing your stress with a Gua Sha face massage, coupled with a leg and foot massage is that the lower cortisol levels allow your immune system to grow stronger, meaning that you’re less likely to get sick and can spend more time doing the things you enjoy.
A Gua Sha facial massage is perfectly paired with a leg and foot massage. You might think this combination won’t work, but trust us – focusing on the extremes is what makes taking time out for yourself so pleasurable. And your body knows it.
