Gua Sha

Gua Sha







Gua Sha is a healing technique used in Traditional Chinese Medicine; ‘Gua’ means to scrape or rub, raising the ‘Sha’ which means the blood or Qi stagnation, to promote normal circulation and metabolic processes. Gua Sha involves coetaneous stimulation through repeated pressured strokes over lubricated skin with a special smooth edge instrument, which can be a ceramic Chinese soup spoon or a buffalo horn.


Gua Sha moves promotes circulation and stuck Qi and blood, releases pathogens and moves fluids which contain metabolic waste and stagnant blood that congested into the surface tissues and surrounding muscles.


This technique can result in the appearance of small, reddish, elevated sand-like skin rash called petechiae, also known as ‘Sha’, that will disappear within 48 to 72 hours. 


Gua Sha treats chronic and acute conditions of respiratory and digestive disorders. The patient is expected to experience immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, nausea and other symptoms.
