Gua Sha

Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. The technician may apply mild pressure and gradually increase intensity to determine how much force you can handle. The force and downward motion address stagnant energy in the body that practitioners believe may be responsible for inflammation, an underlying cause of chronic pain. The repeated scraping of the skin’s surface is thought to break up the energy, reduce inflammation and promote healing.
