This ancient Chinese healing technique offers a unique approach to better health, addressing issues like chronic pain.
Gua Sha is a Chinese treatment, similar in effect to cupping. ‘Gua’ stands for rubbing or friction. ‘Sha’ stands for congested or stagnant blood at the surface of the body. When friction is applied in repeated, even strokes, the ‘sha’ surfaces as small red petechiae relieving pain and muscle tension. The red spots and bruising might take 2 to 3 days to heal. Usually a flat tool with rounded ends is used to create this effect. It is wonderful at treating stiff upper necks and backs and dealing with everyday stress.
