Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. This ancient technique may offer a unique approach to better health, addressing issues like chronic pain. In gua sha, we scrape your skin with short or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow. They make these strokes with a smooth-edged instrument known as a gua massage tool. We apply massage oil to your skin and then uses the tool to repeatedly scrape in a downward motion.
Gua sha may reduce inflammation, so it’s often used to treat ailments that cause chronic pain, such as arthritis and fibromyalgia, as well as those that trigger muscle and joint pain. Such as chronic neck pain, migraine headaches, Breast engorgement, Tourette syndrome, & Perimenopausal syndrome.
