Some treatment areas will require less pressure and others will require more, depending on the thickness and elasticity of the skin. For thick or elastic skin, use slight pressure and rub slowly.

No, you do not have to wash your face after gua sha. Having gua sha is actually better than cleansing your face because cleansing your face will remove the natural oils on our skin and make it more oily. During gua sha, the natural oils in the skin will be pushed to the surface of our skin which will make our skin shiny and soft without washing it.
