This gua sha combs stimulates blood flow to the scalp, promoting hair growth. However, it is more versatile than just being used on the scalp. The indent on the end is used on the fingers to relieve pain and arthritis, while the top and rounded edges can be used on any area of the body with pain, stiffness or stagnation.
Do not scrape over any mole, pimple, varicose veins, skin disorders, wounds or scratches.
Gua sha is not recommended during pregnancy.
Do not use gua sha on the weak or elderly whose skin may be too frail.
Do not use on people with bleeding disorders, who are taking anti-coagulant medication or who have communicable diseases.
When using on the face only use gentle pressure to avoid bruises or marks.
