    Lymphatic Drainage and Body Tools

    Lymphatic Drainage and Body Tools

    WHAT IS LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE?

    Lymphatic drainage is a massage technique that works on the lymphatic system to stimulate the movement of lymph to your lymph nodes (located throughout the body but mainly located in your neck, armpits and groin). This gentle massage will encourage and accelerate the process of removing excess fluid and toxins from the body.

     

    BENEFITS OF LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE:

    - Stimulate circulation and exfoliate skin

    - Improve immune system by aiding with lymphatic drainage and eliminating toxins from the body

    - Tone, sculpt and smooth skin to reduce the appearance of cellulite

    - Provides both body and mental relaxation

    - Reduce swelling and water retention

    - Energize and invigorate the body leaving you with an overall sense of wellbeing

     

    HOW TO USE OUR BODY TOOLS FOR LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE:

    Start with our dry body brush pre-shower to trigger the lymph to start draining.

    On dry skin, start at your feet and brush upward toward the heart using gentle long strokes in an upwards or circular motion. Repeat up the arms starting at the hands. For the stomach area work in a clockwise direction. Repeat strokes 3-6 times on each section of the body.

    Do not use on the face or irritated skin and use very gently on the neck and chest area.

    For optimal results follow with up our Body Gua Sha tool post-shower to continue stimulating circulation and moving the lymph. Again the goal is to move the lymph towards the heart so that your body can properly flush out excess fluid and toxins. Start by applying a body oil or lotion for slip and start at your ankles moving up the legs using medium to firm pressure. Repeat up the arms from wrist to underarms and shoulders. Finish by moving in downward strokes down the torso to eliminate excess fluid and toxins from the body. Repeat strokes 4-8 times on each section of the body. The comb and wavy edge are designed to help smooth skin and break up fascia - especially great for thighs and cellulite prone areas.

    What Is Gua Sha?

    blog post image

    What Is Gua Sha?

    Gua Sha is an ancient and natural massage technique that can be traced back thousands of years to early traditional Chinese medicine.

    Believed to relieve sore, tired, stiff or injured muscles, the art of Gua Sha saw its first wave of popularity upon its introduction to Vietnam, where it is still commonly used to remedy a plethora of ailments.

    When used on the face, the benefits of Gua Sha are:

    - Firming, lifting and sculpting of the face

    - Jaw and facial tension relief

    - Puffiness and dark circles reduction

    - Promotion of lymphatic drainage

    - Increased circulation and a natural glow from within

    Gua Sha stones come in a number of shapes and materials. Ávra Gua Sha Stones are made from authentic natural stones and crystals. Due to natural formations, each stone is unique.

    Results are best maintained by using 2-3 times a week up to once a day.

    About the Stones

    BIAN

    Ávra specializes in Bian Gua Sha stones. Designed with every natural curve and contour of your face in mind, our stones will help you get better acquainted with your skin while creating a glowing complexion and enhancing your self-care routine.

    Bian Stone is the most authentic material for Gua Sha tools and has the highest rate of ultrasonic pulses (3670 pulses vs 1834 pulses for Jade), which allows it to resonate with the body. It also contains over 40 minerals and trace elements that produce negative ions which are known for their antioxidant properties and anti-aging effects.

    Metaphysically, Bian Stone protects the aura & aligns all chakras, purging the body of any negative energy.

    Due to natural formations in the stone, each one is unique. Our Bian Stone Gua Sha is made from authentic, 100% Bian Stone and comes with a storage pouch for safekeeping.

    Rose Quartz is known as the universal stone of love. It is said to restore harmony and trust in all relationships. Rose Quartz purifies and opens the heart at all levels to promote self-love, love in relationships and friendships, deep inner healing and feelings of peace, reflection and acceptance.

    Due to natural formations in the stone, each stone will be unique in color and pattern. Our Rose Quartz Gua Sha is made from authentic, 100% natural Rose Quartz crystals and comes with a storage pouch for safekeeping.

    How to Gua Sha

    blog post image

    How to Gua Sha

    STEP 1: Cleanse - always start with a clean face.

    STEP 2: Spritz skin with a facial mist - hydration is key.

    STEP 3: Warm your favourite serum in your palms and apply to your face and neck - we suggest an oil-based serum as it will provide the slip needed without pulling at the skin.

    STEP 4: Get that Glow! Holding your Gua Sha tool almost flat to the skin and applying light to medium pressure (being very gentle around the eyes) begin by making short strokes in just one direction (up / out). Repeat each stroke 3-6 times.

    STEP 5: Starting at the chin, glide the Gua Sha along the jawline moving towards the ear. At the top of the jaw, wiggle the Gua Sha back and forth before sweeping down the neck; this will stimulate lymphatic drainage and brighten your skin.

    STEP 6: Continue working your way up your face using the same technique to sculpt your cheeks, soften smile lines and reduce dark circles and under eye puffiness.

    STEP 7: Next lift the brow by running the gua sha along the brow line towards the temple.

    STEP 8: Follow by using the Gua Sha to smooth lines just above the brows working up the forehead toward the hairline.

    STEP 9: Let’s not forget to give some love to those tech lines! Starting at the center of your neck glide the Gua Sha up along and across the neck to the chin.

    STEP 10: Always finish with downward strokes from the chin down the sides of the neck to aid with lymphatic drainage.

    Results are best maintained by using 2-3 times a week up to once a day

    Our Story

    Ávra Skin is the result of my long-time search for natural methods, tools, and skincare products to reduce signs of aging, relieve tension, and improve the overall health and radiance of my skin.

    I’m a young mom of three (almost) grown kids - a few fine lines are par for the course. But as I neared my 40th birthday, I decided it was time to up the ante on my skincare routine. Turned off by the typical invasive procedures and harsh chemicals, I began to look for more natural options that would still yield the result I wanted: to look as fabulous as I felt.

    This personal journey turned into a deeper interest once I discovered the wonderful world of Gua Sha. As a natural healing remedy, I found its connection to both ancient ritual and skincare intriguing. Plus, my skin had never looked better! I knew I had to share my newfound skincare secrets with the class.

    After experimenting with different stone shapes and styles, I began narrowing my focus to materials. I selected the Bian and Rose Quartz stones based on both physical and metaphysical properties. Not only will they provide immediate results in the appearance of your skin, but they are also intended to balance and heal the body’s energy, leaving you with a heightened sense of well being.

    This is a new level of self care and I’m so excited to share these incredible tools with you.
