BIAN Stone Gua Sha
Stimulate. Release. Invigorate.
Perfectly sized for both facial and body massage, YINA's best-in-class BIAN Stone Gua Sha stone is inspired by the ancient practice of Chinese Medicine to activate circulation and invigorate energy.
When practiced regularly, Bian Stone Gua Sha helps to depuff, tone, smooth fascia, and improve circulation on the skin while releasing tension and promoting relaxation.
"BEST GUA SHA" - VOGUE
We chose Bian stone for our Gua Sha tool because of its powerful healing properties. This cosmic stone was formed 65 million years when a meteorite landed in Shandong, China. Stone-age excavation found tools made with Bian stone for surgery and healing.
Our Gua Sha is made with Bian Shi (砭石), a micro-crystalline stone that contains more than 30+ minerals and trace elements that are beneficial to the human body. Mineralogy studies show that Bian stone creates far-infrared waves, ultrasound pulses, and negative ions that help boost and regenerate healthy human cells and DNA.
How To Gua Sha
Use the stone to massage the face, neck, shoulders, limbs, or anywhere on your body that needs attention.
We recommend to use a YINA Botanical Serum for the face, or RECOVERY Body Treatment for your body when practicing Gua Sha.
Glide stone over your body using medium pressure and unidirectional strokes. Move to a different part of your body after 5-10 strokes. Work your way through your entire body by focusing on one section at a time.
When practiced daily as a supportive therapy, you'll experience
- Release of tension and stagnation
- Less puffiness, more toned skin
- Improved circulation
- Better flow of Qi & Blood
- Relaxed mind and body
Purifies and draws out negative energy. Invigorates, and stimulates elemental energy. Enhances mental focus.
Authentic Bian Stone
High quality Bian stones are limited. This is sourced from Shandong, China, the only place in the world that produces Bian stone. YINA Gua Sha is produced by a certified facility that creates medical grade Bian tools.
Bian stones come in a range of colors from brown to grayish black. The highest grade of Bian stones are Xuan Huang 玄黄 - rich brown with copper undertones. These are the stones in our current batch.
No two stones are completely alike. Stones with naturally- formed yellow spots are considered more rare and valuable.
