Gua Sha is a centuries old Chinese therapeutic healing modality. Gua Sha Therapy is very popular in China. It’s not only used for the healing attribute, but also used for the diet, beauty, relaxation, etc.
In Chinese,”gua” means rub, scrape or friction, and “sha” is a term used to describe blood stasis in the subcutaneous tissue. The system promotes “Qi” (Life Force) in the body and facilitates lymph and blood circulation. This aids in the removal of toxins and stagnant fluids. Gua Sha can loosen adhesiveness and lift connective tissue, aiding blood flow to skin and muscles.
