Last month, we showed you how to get started with gua sha as well as five ways movements you could use to promote movement of lymph through the body. April is National Stress Relief Month and we talked with Woodside Licensed Esthetician and Massage Therapist, Trina Blake to learn four areas you can gua sha that can help relieve tension and stress in the body.
Some of the most common places we carry stress in the body are our heads, jaws, neck and shoulders. Storing stress in these parts of our body can lead to a number of health issues like headaches and migraines, heart and blood pressure issues, irritability, fatigue, decreased immunity and insomnia just to name a few. Gua sha is a great way to not only relieve stress and tension in the body but also lift and sculpt the body for firmer more supple skin.
