LUMI has partnered up with Näojooga to offer you a complete beauty regimen that not only includes top-notch skincare products but also focuses on the state of your facial muscles and metabolism. The Gua Sha massage technique is a tried-and-true method that has proven to be effective for thousands of years.


The Gua Sha facial massage technique has its roots in the ancient Chinese healing practice. The term “Gua” stands for scraping, while “Sha” refers to acute illness. Combining both terms gives us “Gua Sha,” which means to scrape away the disease. Apart from massage, the Gua Sha technique also involves applying pressure on acupuncture points, which boosts blood circulation, fortifies the immune system, and helps in preventing and relieving different symptoms of illness.

The LUMI Gua Sha massage stone is an excellent choice to include in your beauty routine, whether it’s in the morning or evening. This massage stone is made of high-quality, volcanic obsidian, and is designed to enhance your skin’s metabolism, blood, and lymph circulation. The massage helps to eliminate waste products and enriches your tissues with essential oxygen and nutrients. This process also helps to relax your facial muscles, leaving your complexion looking brighter and your expression more vibrant. By using this massage stone, you’ll also see a reduction in dark spots and swelling.

By regularly performing Gua Sha facial massages, you may notice the following results:

  • The skin’s blood flow enhances, leading to better oxygen supply to the tissues. As a result, the process of renewing skin cells speeds up, and collagen production initiates, which enhances the skin’s elasticity and strength. Ultimately, this helps to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines.
  • The lymphatic system plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy skin. When it becomes sluggish, it can lead to various skin problems like swelling, fatigue, and acne. Stimulating the lymphatic circulation is only achievable through muscle movement or massage. Gua Sha is an effective technique that can help boost the lymphatic system and improve skin health.
  • Gua Sha can help reduce the visibility of acne scars by promoting blood circulation. By accelerating the renewal of skin cells, the appearance of acne scars can be minimized.
  • Gua Sha helps to reduce swelling by promoting lymphatic drainage and increasing blood flow. This, in turn, tightens the skin and reduces swelling around the eyes and face. Additionally, improved blood circulation can reduce dark circles and give the skin a more youthful appearance.
  • Gua Sha is an effective technique to relax facial muscles and tissues, which helps to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, resulting in a youthful appearance.
  • Regularly massaging your face with the Gua Sha technique can improve the appearance of your cheekbones and jawline. With the right method, you can achieve a more defined and attractive facial structure. This means you won’t have to rely on makeup contouring to enhance your features anymore.
  • It has the ability to reinforce the blood vessels and can be beneficial for those dealing with rosacea. Additionally, it has a calming effect on the face and chin, promoting healthy and glowing skin.

To ensure that you receive the best possible outcomes from your Gua Sha massage and your stone lasts for many years, it is recommended to follow these instructions:

  1. To ensure proper hygiene, it is important to wash the massage stone with mild soap and warm water before the first use and after each use. After washing, make sure to dry the stone and keep it in the provided velvet bag for safe storage. It’s important to note that the stone is fragile and may break if dropped on a hard surface.
  2. It is important to cleanse your face and neck before performing a Gua Sha massage. If you’re looking for a gentle facial cleanser, LUMI offers two options: the Moisturizing Facial Cleansing Milk and the Tundra AHA-BHA Cleansing Milk. Both options protect the hydrolipidic layer of your skin, which is essential for its normal functioning.
  3. It is common to experience a mild redness on the skin after a massage, as this indicates improved blood flow in the tissues. There is no need to be concerned as it is a normal reaction.
  4. For a smooth massage experience, apply your preferred care product on your face and neck without any cream or oil. We personally recommend the LUMI Superbloom vitamin C serum for a refreshing beauty sleep and the LUMI Sunberry day serum with turmeric for a bright start to your day. Feel free to add more product as needed during the massage.
  5. To hold the stone correctly, you should position it at a 45-degree angle and apply moderate pressure. Be careful not to use too much pressure, as it could lead to discomfort or pain.
  6. To get the best results, make sure to repeat 3-5 strokes in each area while massaging your face. It’s important to always start from the center of the face and move towards the sides. While massaging the nose, move towards the tip and from the bridge of the nose towards the sides. Begin the massage from under the chin and move upwards towards the forehead for a complete massage.
  7. To ensure a thorough and effective process, start by smoothing out each area of the face before moving down to the neck. Finish up by targeting the large lymph nodes located above or beyond the collarbones at the front of the armpits.

Gua Sha massages can be done daily, although performing it 2-3 times per week is sufficient. To ensure you’re doing it properly, you can check out the instructional video with Marion Kattai-Kassihin on Nöojooga!
