Gua Sha

Gua sha treatmentGua sha, a Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment for heat conditions that involves the scraping of the patient’s neck, chest and/or back, dates back more than 2000 years.

Gua sha involves palpation and cutaneous stimulation in which the skin is pressed with a ‘scraper’; that results in the appearance of small red patches.

Sha means blood stasis, and once blood circulation is obstructed, illnesses are sure to follow.

Gua sha can help excrete noxious waste and dissipate blood stasis.
