“Guasha has been around for centuries, and in the East is seen as folk and family medicine—something that is passed down from generation to generation. And the reason it's been around for so long, and it's still around, is because it works,” says skin care expert Debbie Kung, DAOM, LAc. In this episode of Clean Beauty School, mindbodygreen’s beauty director Alexandra Engler and Kung discuss guasha. The practice may be focused on the face in the West, but in the East it has been used on the body for centuries to help improve immunity, stress, and so much more.
