Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. This stone is designed to stimulate collagen production and lymphatic flow. The teeth on this stone gently erase fine lines and bring fullness to the area. This stone is also good for massaging sore muscles and diminishing cellulite from the surface of the skin.
By using your favorite glō Luxury Oil first, the Gua Sha stone can then be used to enable absorption of nutrients from the products as well as to stimulate lymphatic flow, reduce inflammation and bring blood flow to the surface leaving you with a healthy glow. Proper use of Gua Sha stones encourages circulation under the skin bringing nutrients and boosting collagen and elastin to the area. Regular Gua Sha treatments are often called the Botox alternative because of its effect of relaxing facial muscles and stimulating collagen the prevents and or softens fine to deep lines.
HOW TO USE: Gua Sha (aka:press stroke) First apply your favorite glō oil generously to clean skin. Hold the stone gently with the rounded edge pressed against your skin. Begin at the mouth and stroke upward towards your ear. Repeat 5 times on each side. Then move to your forehead between the brows and stroke up toward your scalp. Repeat this movement 5 times moving out to the end of your brows so that the entire forehead is stroked. Move down to the jaw line and with the two point end placed along the jaw bone, gently stroke from your chin along the jaw line towards your ear and repeat 5-10 times on each side.
Finally move to the neck area. Begin below your earlobe (many lymph glands reside here) and stroke downward to the base of your neck. This movement also helps boot the immune system! Repeat gliding movement 5-10 times on each side. Lastly move to below your chin with the end of the tool that naturally fits over your "Adams Apple". Glide the tool gently from the bottom of your chin to the base of your neck 5-10 times
