Unlock the Ancient Health & Beauty Secret: Gua Sha

Gua Sha’s Have Been Dominating The Skincare Industry ( & for good reason! )

They have exceptional benefits that help in reducing puffiness & sculpting the face . These beautiful crystals target the lymph nodes , which carry excess fluids & toxins, that can cause your face/neck to appear puffier than normal.  This Traditional Chinese Medicinal (TCM) tool is not just limited for facial use, because it has wondrous effects on the body as well: boosting blood circulation, reducing muscle fatigue, & improving the look of cellulite. (more on that later 😉 )

First things first, let's hit the reset button. Cleanse your face & follow your usual morning or night routine. Just make sure to use a moisturizer or facial oil on your skin to help your tool slide smoothly without any tugs. Here's the pro tip: use the flat side of the tool for the best outcome & apply gentle to moderate pressure. Remember, comfort is key!



For optimized results, make sure to show your face some Gua Sha love regularly: 3 to 4 times a week is the sweet spot. You can fit this into your morning or evening routine, whatever works better for you. But hey, why not start the day with a little Gua Sha action? You'll feel like a million bucks as your skin wakes up & tightens, ready to tackle the day. Alternatively, evenings sessions could also work as a tranquil worthy nightcap. Blissful relaxation guaranteed !

Daily life stresses can weigh heavily on our faces. Fortunately, a Gua Sha facial  massage can work wonders to reduce tension, stress levels & sinus pressure. (As well as boost your mood!)  



Another great facial benefit, is that it works wonders for TMJ or any form of jaw tension. We often hold so much tension there ( I know I certainly  do ! ) & don't even realize it until we start working with the muscles there. To all of those teeth grinders out there, this practice is for you. Ahhhh sweet relief !



Anyone who has experienced sinus pressure, knows this pain can be debilitating. Our sinuses are small cavities located within the bone structures around our nose & cheeks. When they become inflamed or filled with mucus, the result is a feeling of pressure that can lead to congestion and pain.

Chinese acupressure methods have shown that applying pressure to specific points on the face & chest can help stimulate & energize the sinuses.  Massaging these pressure points, you can help to improve:

  • Blood flow
  • Tense muscles
  • Swelling
  • Mucus congestion
  • Sinus headaches 



Stress is sneaky. It can cause chaos in your mind, body, & even your skin! Banishing stress is a must-do for your mental & physical well-being, but don't forget about your skin. If your skin is feeling the heat from stress, it's time to break out that Gua Sha &  healing oil to soothe & rejuvenate. Knead that stress away girlfriend ! At Beverlee Botanicals, we care about your wellbeing, & want you to thrive on the inside/out.

Another way to enhance your self-care practice is by trying Gua Sha for the body. Although gua sha is commonly linked with the trend of facial rejuvenation in modern-day wellness circles, historically, this practice encompasses the entire body. Traditional Chinese Medicine doesn't differentiate between the two.

In China ( & other eastern cultures ) it has been employed for generations to treat a variety of bodily maladies including muscle stiffness, fever, respiratory illnesses like coughs, and even as a means to revive consciousness.

Say goodbye to that nagging tech neck pain! This healing technique can help rub out the root cause of your pain - the tension in your myofascial tissue. You know the drill, after hours hunched over your desk or phone, that pain creeps up your neck and morphs into a vicious headache or upper back tension. But fear not, Gua Sha can come to your rescue, smoothing out the tension and sending that pain packing!



Cellulite is often a by-product of dysfunctional fascia. Fascia is the connective tissue that encases muscles, nerves, veins, organs. When the fascia becomes stagnant from overwork, injury, sitting for prolonged periods of time, dehydration, & chronic illness, it can cause these dimples in our skin. Let's also not forget that genetics play a huge role in whether you develop cellulite & 90% of women report they have some form of it, so don't fret! 

Working with your fascia on a regular basis with Gua Sha can help restore fascial health, & will assist in making your body feel more nourished & energized in general.

Try using our ultra vitamin rich Boujee Butter  with your Gua Sha to improve the texture, tone & firmness . 



Are you looking for a happier belly? Consider an internal organ massage with Gua Sha, which can stimulate movement in the bowels through circular motions. (think clockwise) This technique is especially useful for women experiencing bloating & cramps during their menstrual cycle.

BONUS TIP: Add a few drops of chamomile or marjoram essential oils to enhance the massage benefits.



So you hit the gym hard, but now your muscles are crying for mercy. It's the classic case of muscle fatigue, & it's no joke. Your body is trying to tell you something after all that exertion. Maybe you feel weak, maybe you're all achy, or maybe you just want to nap for a week. Whatever it is, don't fret, Gua Sha can come to the rescue! Simply massage your tension spots to break up that tight fascia & increase blood flow which will revitalize those tight muscles. 

BONUS TIP: Try this in bed as a snooze worthy nightcap with the help of one of Mother nature's most powerful painkillers, peppermint oil.







(do not use Gua Sha if you suffer from any of these) 

  • sunburn
  • severe acne 
  • open wounds 
  • recent invasive treatments



To achieve optimal health, it is essential to have a body where energy freely flows. Remember, where attention goes, energy flows.

✌️& 💕,


*It is important to note that Gua Sha should not be used over the surface of an implant or an open wound, or if you are taking blood thinners. If you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or have any underlying medical conditions, it is always best to consult with your doctor before starting any new wellness routines or rituals.
