New Moon in Pisces.

One of the most

intuitive signs of the

zodiac.

 

 

 

 

 

 Today, February 20th, the New Moon falls in the sign of Pisces, one of the most intuitive signs of the zodiac. 

As a reminder, every 28 days the moon takes a
break from shining any light - aka: the New Moon. 
The universe is coaching us to do the same - take a moment.
If you engage in any restorative activities over the next 48 hours like yin yoga, drawing, Guasha, having a bath, or journaling, you may find yourself naturally thinking of characteristics ruled by Pisces. 
Represented by the fish, the water sign of Pisces has deep
compassion and empathy for their loved ones. They are drawn to the spiritual, artistic, and magical aspects of life. These characteristics contribute to them having soulful connections to those around them. They care for others deeply.  Often, they are at least a little psychic. 
If over the next 48 hours, you are inclined to explore the deeper topics of life or your close relationships, today’s new moon
might be the reason why. If you keep scrolling, we've suggested a playlist which might be a great soundtrack for the next 48 hours.

Travel Edition

With #rockwithcare being so portable, it’s no wonder so many people travel with their stone.  Travelling with a Guasha tool offers many benefits on the go. 
Try our 5 wellness hacks using #rockwithcare next time you travel. (All of them - they are so great!)

 

Grounded 1002's #rockwithcare guasha stone

Looking to reduce puffy eyes?  Run #rockwithcare under cold water and place the U edge on top of the under-eye area for at least 5 seconds - no pressure required given #rockwithcare is quite heavy compared to most Guasha tools. You can also use #rockwithcare like a cucumber.   Lie down with your eyes closed, placing the stone on your eye area for a cooling experience that works from the inside out. 

 

Want to instantly melt away neck tension?  Close the eyes. Stroke down the sides and back of the neck using the jagged edge of #rockwithcare. Start with no pressure.  You can gradually add pressure after exploring all sections of the neck. Never exceed 6/10 in pressure levels. We recommend slowly taking your ear to your shoulder to extend the surface you will run the stone down.  Where you find knots, lightly wiggle the stone back and forth over the section until the knot disappears.  Never apply hard pressure on the knotty areas.  The body will clear out tension faster with less pressure. This is great on the flight too!

 

Want to keep the digestive system calm and regular despite the time zone? 

Stroke your #rockwithcare from under the breastbone down your abdomen towards your pelvic area with a pressure area starting at 4/10 pressure level.  Gradually, move to a 8/10 after completing all sections of the abdomen. Make sure to cover the entire area of the stomach to massage the organs, move a sluggish abdomen area from all the sitting on a flight, and to encourage lymphatic drainage. Running the stone across the entire body is the ultimate goal for proper circulation. (Do not do any of this if pregnant or on blood thinners without speaking to your doctor.)

 

 

Need relief from mosquito bites?  If you dont have access to an ice pack, run #rockwithcare under cold water and place on the mosquito bites.  Our founder, Neeta discovered this hack last week in India when her 4 year old was clearly uncomfortable with his itchy ankles. It helped so much and involved no watery mess from melting ice.

 

 

 

 

Feeling frazzled being in a new place?  A very easy way to calm the nervous system is to use jagged edge of #rockwithcare across the base of the neck, the entire scalp, and forehead.  Place the stone perpendicularly on the scalp.  Hold in one spot and wiggle the stone using a pressure of 5 or 6.  Do this for 5 seconds. Lift and repeat over another part of the scalp area.  We recommend using it across 10 -12 areas of the scalp, forehead, and base of the neck. Within 30 seconds, you will notice a difference. 

 

 

We hope these tips offer alternative ways to stay healthy while you travel and also why #rockwithcare is an essential for your next vacation.
If you’ve travelled with your stone, please share how you’ve used yours.  We’d love to know.

Either way, the potency of these sounds create good vibes only.
