"I never reach the end of the day and say "wow I did everything I needed to do." There is a surrender knowing it's impossible to do it all. I could stress about it, or just pull out my Empress Stone."

TUTORIAL

Melt Shoulder Tension

Today we wanted to bring you a tutorial that will shift you energetically. While lymphatic drainage requires a gentle pressure, this muscle work calls for a stronger touch. As always, don’t gua sha over any moles or breakouts. If you’re a new mom holding a baby, suffer from poor posture, and/or always carry a heavy back, this series can bring immediate relief.

— 1 —
Using the Comb Edge, start where the hairline meets the neck and sweep down the side of the neck out to shoulder. Do this 10 to 20 times.

woman demonstrating step two

— 2 —
Comb from the breast bone up and out to underneath the front of the shoulder, across the peck muscle. Repeat five to ten times.

woman demonstrating step 3

— 3 —
On the back body, use the Comb Edge of the tool. It will stay parallel to the spine as it sweeps outward toward the shoulder. Repeat this stroke 5 to 10 times.

 

Repeat the sequence on the other side.

Don’t be afraid to use more pressure, but note that sometimes it can leave marks. That’s not a bad thing! If you want to avoid the marks, be mindful and a little more gentle.
