GUA SHA

Gua sha is a healing technique of Chinese Medicine.  It involves palpation and cutaneous stimulation where the skin is pressured, in strokes, by a round-edged instrument that results in the appearance of small red petechiae called “sha” that will fade in 2 to 3 days. Raising “sha” removes blood stagnation considered pathogenic, promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes.
