A breath of calmness in your busy life. A daily ritual, an act of self care.

What it is
Gua sha has been practiced in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. This gua sha sculpting tool encourages the gentle release of facial + jaw tension through acupressure.

What it does
Designed specifically for more precise work and a deeper massage, this tool can help:
  • Sculpt facial features like the cheeks
  • Drain puffiness from the face
  • Melt facial tension through acupressure points
  • Release jaw tension
How to use:
- Always start with clean skin that has been prepped with skincare product. Our favorite is the Calming Herbal Repair Facial Massage Balm to ensure that tools can glide on the skin without pulling.
- Use the rounded spoon side to gently sculpt the face, focusing underneath the cheekbone. The specialized, rounded shape of the gua sha spoon allows for a deeper release.
- Use the smaller end of the tool on acupressure trigger points, focusing on the areas near the brow bone, the temples, the ears and along the jaw. Massage in small, slow circles into the trigger points.
- Breathe deeply and feel the tension melt away.


Due to natural variations in stone, every stone tool is unique in pattern and color. The stones + crystals we use are authentic and natural. We do not artificially dye or treat the stones to let their true beauty shine through.
Use our facial tools and skincare for naturally glowing, radiant skin. Pair different tools together with our skincare to maximize results. We harness ancient beauty secrets with a modern approach to craft gentle yet effective tools and skincare. Our products are easy to use and perfect to add to your everyday ritual.

Soooo good

Bought this during a drawn out cold/flu spell. I have issues with sinuses and stress in general. I use the spoon while on my client calls to help with drainage as well as to relieve stress from talking with people all day.

Great product

Well made and very helpful tool. For me the most important is acupressure point. I love it!

Only Okay

The pointed end is only ok for release. The spoon end was more flat. Due to being more flat than rounded, it doesn’t carve as well as other Gua Sha tools for me.

LOVE

I'm so happy with this Gua Sha spoon. I'm new to this type of skin care, but it's become a but of an obsession. I love how the cool stone feels on my face on these warm nights. I've purchased almost every Mount Lai tool over the past couple months and don't regret any of the purchases.

Use it almost daily!

I use the gua sha spoon almost daily to help with jaw pain/tension (which has gotten significantly worse for me during the pandemic). It's relaxing and I notice a real difference between the nights that I do and don't remember to do it. I loved it so much I got one for my mom for mother's day - she's a gua sha pro and is already loving the new addition to her routine!

THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE RITUAL

Why It Works

Mount Lai tools are designed to work on the lymphatic system, address adhesions in the fascia and melt tension in the facial and jaw muscles, promoting a radiant complexion + combatting fine lines and wrinkles.

01 / Why is lymphatic drainage important? The lymphatic system is a part of the immune system that helps the body get rid of toxins and waste. ...

02 / The benefits of lymphatic drainage are two-fold. Lymphatic drainage removes toxic and congestive substances from the tissues, which allows greater absorption of nutrients. ...

03 / Why is using a tool better than using your hands? The beauty of Mount Lai tools is that they work on the skin without pulling. As a result, the tool is able to work on the very surface level of the skin to target the lymph system and fascia that you wouldn’t be able to target with your hands. ...
