Gua Sha Therapy
Gua sha therapy, as it relates to massage, is a specialized fascial therapy. It can directly stimulate peripheral nerves, improve local circulation of blood and lymph fluid, speed up the metabolism, promote nutritional supply and facilitate the body’s defence systems. This improves the function of the soft tissue in the treated area. Gua sha is a part of the study and application of Chinese medicine. “Gua” means to scrape or rub, while “Sha” is a reddish, elevated patch of skin. The result of gua sha therapy is to improve qi flow and blood circulation, balance yin and yang, remove pathogenic factors, discharge or drain stagnant toxins and refresh the mind.
