The Body Restorer Ritual

The Body Restorer helps you clear away the daily build up of stress, in just one minute. This simple self-treatment is based on a tried & tested Chinese Medicine technique called Gua Sha - where a round, smooth edged massage tool (in our case, the Body Restorer) is press-stroked on the skin to free areas of tightness, congestion and pain.

It targets the key areas where tension is most readily stored in the body - the neck, shoulders, chest and upper back. This tension, left unchecked, can result in all manner of issues from aches, pains and stiffness to fatigue and insomnia.

    Practising Gua Sha for the first time can seem a little daunting, but rest assured, you really can’t get it wrong. Just start gently and be lead by what feels right for you. Redness is not only common, it’s the desired result – a sign that you are bringing stagnation to the surface and the treatment is working effectively. It will subside quickly, but we advocate treating in the evening to allow your skin time to settle.

    Take a moment and listen to your body. Are there particular areas of pain and niggling tension? Use a firm pressure and slowly sweep the Body Restorer across the body, following the arrows on the diagram to start with. Do about 8 strokes in the direction of each arrow and then repeat on the other side. Imagine you are scratching an itchy insect bite, and use a similar pressure.

    The chest, neck and back form the basis of the evening ritual, as these are the main areas that hold stress and tension. Please note, you should wait until any redness has subsided before re-treating that area.

About the The Body Restorer Ritual

You may well be new to Gua Sha - but the good news is that it’s incredibly easy to do yourself and can fit effortlessly into your life. Scientifically proven to exponentially improve surface circulation of blood (which explains any reddening of the skin), Gua Sha purges toxins, drains lymph and enables nutrient supply.
