Body gua sha is one method to enhance your self-care routine. Gua sha is most often used for facial renewal, however this treatment has historically been used on the entire body. The stone Gua Sha tool can ease muscle soreness and tension in addition to reducing the look of cellulite on your thighs, legs, and buttocks.
The Gua Sha Tool
Gua sha tools are flat, smooth stones that can be made from a range of semi-precious rocks, including crystalline, rose quartz, jade, and quartz, among others.
Due to the belief of the early practitioners that blood stagnation could result in pain or illness, the device has been utilized in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The gua sha instrument is still used today to improve ailments like fluid retention, tension in the body, cellulite appearance, joint and muscular pain, and poor blood circulation.
Reducing tension improves blood flow to the skin by dissolving facia adhesions which improves collagen and elasticity in the skin can tighten and firm its appearance.
The Benefits of Full Body Gua Sha
Body Gua Sha has many benefits including helping increase circulation, reducing cellulite, lymphatic drainage, releasing tightness, and more.
Reduces the look of cellulite
Body Gua Sha will help to relax the fascia. All of your muscles are connected by fascia, so by relaxing it you may redistribute any fat, giving you a more even appearance.
Regular Body Gua Sha can help redistribute fluid. When your fascia is efficiently and regularly stimulated, your lymphatic system may work more effectively.
Relieves muscle tension
Your muscles stiffen up and contract when you have fascial adhesions; releasing the fascia with a body gua sha practise helps to release this tension.
Improves your immune system
If your fascia is knotted and tight it is possible for toxins to get stuck in your body. These systems influence your digestion and hormones and therefore maintaining fascial health can aid and contribute to the improved health of your entire body.
Releases muscle pain
Tension can be one of the primary causes of pain that frequently manifests as a headache or upper back tightness. Gua sha aids in releasing this muscle stress.
How Gua Sha Reduces Cellulite
A gua sha tool can lessen the look of cellulite so that you notice fewer bumps and dimples even though it cannot totally remove it. Fat cells that protrude into the layer of skin are what generate cellulite. It may appear on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen.
Gua sha breaks apart the bands of connective tissue beneath the skin's surface and softly scrapes the skin's surface to reduce the appearance of cellulite. The gua sha tool can be applied to any area of the body where cellulite is noticeable. Gua sha will offer you the extra boost you need to see results when combined with consistent exercise and a nutritious diet.

Step 2: Shower with A Body Scrub
Take a warm shower and exfoliate your body, in particular your thighs and legs, with an Eminence Organics sugar scrub.

Massage your chosen Eminence Organics oil or cream to your legs and thighs. Balance one leg up on a stool or a chair so you can access easily the thigh area.
