Gua Sha

Gua sha treatment
 
Gua sha, a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique for stagnant qi and blood 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.
