It’s no secret that things have been emotionally intense lately, and that’s putting it mildly. Between personal challenges, unexpected transitions, the overwhelming state of the world, nerve-racking scrolling, endless to-do lists, and so much more, we as a collective are stressed out.
At Wildling, we’re often asked: can gua sha help with stress? And the answer is … yes, it can! The Empress & Aura Rituals safely & effectively ease stress as well as alleviate many of the symptoms we see as a result of worry, pressure, or distress. Utilizing gua sha as a stress-busting technique is a 100% safe, drug-free, and non-toxic form of selfcare. Gua sha provides a meditative moment to be in your body, become present, and self-soothe.
