GUA SHA

The purpose of Gua Sha is to break up stagnation as well as bring oxygen and nutrients to the surface of the skin. This is done by scraping the area with a smoothed edge instrument.  The strokes result in 'sha' or redness on the surface where treatment is performed, increasing microcirculation and influencing the body's own natural painkillers.
