Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. It is an ancient Chinese healing technique that offer a unique approach to better health, improve the selfhealing power of each cell and addressing issues like chronic pain.
In gua sha, a therapist scrapes your skin with short or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow. These strokes are done with a smooth-edged instrument known as a gua massage tool. The therapist applies massage oil or other fluid to your skin, and then uses the tool to repeatedly scrape your skin.
Gua sha is intended to activate stagnant energy, called chi or prana, in the body that practitioners believe is responsible for inflammation, which often are not given any direct symptoms and causing long term problems. Inflammation is the underlying cause of several conditions associated with chronic pain and degeneration of tissue. Rubbing the skin’s surface should help break up this energy, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
Gua sha is generally performed on the back, buttocks, neck, arms, and legs. A gentle version of it is even used on the face as a facial technique. Your therapist may apply mild pressure, and gradually increase intensity to determine how much force you can handle.
