Gua Sha involves repeated pressured strokes over lubricated skin with a smooth edge. Gua means to scrape and Sha is the red area that appears after scraping.
This is called kitchen or folk medicine as it has been known in China and many other asian countries for ages. A chinese soup spoon, honed animal bones, water buffalo horn, jade or even a simple metal cap with a rounded edge can be used.
If there is a problem in a specific region small red or dark patches under the skin will occur after the treatment. The red patch will disappear within 2-4 days.
Gua Sha has good effect on muscle pain, infiltrations and rheumatism. The treatment opens blockages, increases blood circulation and cleans out the toxins.
Gua Sha is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine.Online booking
