Cupping

Guasha

This is a smooth-edged instrument used gently across the skin where a subcutaneous injury or imbalances reside. The reddening of the skin allows for the reduction of inflammation, the release of pain from the superficial layers of the body to address tight muscles. This is also a wonderful technique that is used in a gentle way for facials to counteract puffiness and smoothen out wrinkles.
