How it Works
4 Massage touch points
The Gua Sha's versatile comb shape offers 4 massage touch points as well as the flat surface for pressing against the sheet mask or skin to help relax muscle tension and boost serum absorption.
Excellent warmth retention
Due to the black obsidian's volcanic origin, it has excellent warmth retention properties, making it a premium "hot stone" for warmed massages that help stimulate blood circulation.
believed to have protective energies
In Crystal therapy, black obsidian is believed to have protective energies against mental stress and negative thoughts. Similarly in Feng Shui, it is thought to help clear out obstacles in one's career and life path, protecting its user from deception.
How to Use
Soak Hot Stone in 110F water (not boiling) for 1-3 mins. Place Hot Stone Facial Sheet Mask over cleansed, dry face. Retrieve hot stone and dry it quickly. Press the Gua Sha for 5-10 sec over sheet mask, focusing on pores/blemished areas. Continue massage for 5-10 min. If using without sheet mask, apply facial oil to skin first.
Gently scrap outwards from the center of the face

What's the difference between the Facial Roller and Gua Sha?
Both the facial roller and Gua Sha can be used to massage, de-stress and de-puff the face while speeding up product absorption, however the Gua Sha can also be used to "scrape" across lymphatic points under the chin, along the neck and shoulders. Gua Shas can also be used on the body, where Rollers are traditionally only for the face. Facial Rollers are traditionally used cold, while Gua Shas are warmed up for massage.
Will the heat from the Gua Sha trigger redness in my skin?
How often should I use this Gua Sha?
Is this product safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women?
Can I use a microwave to warm up the Gua Sha?
NEVER use a microwave to warm up the Gua Sha. Our Gua Sha is made from natural black obsidian stone and its natural heat retention properties mean that it will heat up extremely fast. It is likely to become too hot for use even if you put it in a microwave for just a few seconds. Please use water around 110F to start, and avoid using boiling water for safety reasons.
Any Gua Sha Tips and Tricks?
Try the Gua Sha on your hands! Hand Reflexology with Gua Sha is fast, great way to relax at home and can be done easily on your own (just alternate both hands).
SAFETY: If you accidentally break your Gua Sha, please dispose of the shards immediately in a safe manner. Obsidian is a very sharp natural material and is best kept away from children and pets.
Our Happy Customers
it came packaged very protectively without too much packing, the box itself is hard paper which kept it from being smashed in the post. They were smart to put the diagram on the lid itself instead of wasting paper. Minimal foam. My box came in a beautiful recycbale paper box with biodegradable wrapping, stickers and all! Very thoughtful company.
I was recommended this all the way from Taiwan! The gua sha is absolutely perfect.
Came quickly and the obsidian is really good quality. It's a little slippery when using with oils, but after a while I got the hang of it and it's been so relaxing to use (especially on the neck and shoulders).
bought one for myself and will buy this as a gift for my niece as she is in love with all these wellness items. Never tried the brands skincare but will consider as I prefer to stick to my obagi.
the shape isn't unique, it warms up OK but it does the job
