In the Ming dynasty from 1368 to 1644 it was even written into their medical records.
The use of stones to scrape the skin and treat disease has been gradually improved throughout the ages, and was prominent in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).
A Gua Sha stone routine promotes lymphatic drainage to help eliminate toxins. However, you’ll definitely want to make sure you're stroking upwards and outwards, so you won't push lymph and blood toward the center of your face.

Stimulating those delicate facial muscles with this type of technique helps to bring oxygen to that area, which helps with anti-ageing because collagen production improves with increased blood flow. This means you will get maximum benefit from a nourishing ultra anti ageing lotion.
