Gua Sha Tool
This tool is approximately 3.5" x 2.25" and is made from hand hammered copper with subtle curves to comfortably hug your clients body as you work. The ergonomic shape makes this tool easy to handle while reducing hand fatigue. They now feature a brushed satin finish that enhances grip when using oils and salves. The hand hammer pattern on each tool will vary making it a truly one of a kind creation. Over time the copper will take on a beautiful and unique patina that exemplifies the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi.
About the Design Process
After studying dozens of traditional Gua Sha tools and modern physiotherapy tools I set out to create the perfect Gua Sha tool. I wanted one tool that could do it all and do it better than anything else. I experimented with steel, stone, bronze and even pure silver before deciding on copper. I chose copper for its durability and energetic properties. After multiple redesigns and seven prototypes I asked colleagues to test the tool in a clinical setting. In the end, I believe that this is the perfect Gua Sha tool. Please leave your spoon in the kitchen and use the right tool for the job. Your clients will thank you.
