Bian stones, considered to be the best tools for Gua Sha, were formed about 65 million years ago when a meteorite collided with Earth in Shandong, China. Bian stones contains up to 40 trace minerals produce negative ions and have thermal conductivity and heat-storing capabilities. When rubbed against the skin, the stone gives out ultrasonic impulses which help boost microcirculation. Bian stones produce around 3x as many pulses compared with Jade and Rose Quartz, which are often used in gua sha tools.

How to Use
Using the wider teeth edged side of the stone start with downward strokes on each side of the neck, moving from just below the hairline to the top of the shoulders.
Now move to the sides of the throat and stroke downwards from just below the jar to above the collarbone.
Next, ‘hug’ the jawline with the curved edge of the stone and stroke upwards and outwards.
Now using the flat side of the stone, move to the lower cheek and stroke in an upward and outward direction.
Move to the upper check and stroke in an upward and outward direction.
Now ‘hug’ your browbone with the curved edge of the stone and stroke outward toward the temples.
Move to the forehead, using upward and outward strokes starting from above your eyebrows to the hairline.
At the end of each stroke, give the tool a little wiggle to help release tension.
To support lymphatic drainage, sweep down the sides of you throat at the end of your ritual.
Use the tooth edged sides of the stone to focus on areas where you hold more tension and to help with the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Use light side to side wiggle movements on areas of concern.
