Give the Gift of Wellbeing with HAYO'U
It’s widely acknowledged that everyday day life can have a detrimental impact on our health and well-being, so it’s no surprise that an increasing number of people are turning to ancient wisdom for guidance and using traditional methods to help combat modern-day ailments.
Previously predominately linked to ‘alternative therapies’ Traditional Chinese Medicine is increasingly featuring in the mainstream arena, especially when it comes to beauty regimes. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used by millions of people for thousands of years. It acknowledges the intrinsic link between inner and outer health, incorporating a complex understanding of how the body works; physically, emotionally and spiritually. In TCM your outer beauty reflects your inner health and mental well-being.

One TCM practice that is trending in the beauty sphere, is Gua Sha, pronounced ‘gwah shah’. Despite its current popular status, its technique has a firm place in TCM history and is certainly no new kid on the block. This ancient therapeutic method works on the body’s meridian lines, acupuncture points and also benefits the circulatory system.
What’s Gua Sha?
It’s a therapeutic, healing ritual. A self-massage method that can be carried out on the face or body. It involves using a tool to apply pressure and ‘scrape’ the skin to relieve pain and tension and kick start the body’s natural cleansing process (the name Gua Sha comes from the Chinese word for scraping).
