Oriental Body Balance - Gua Sha


Oriental Body Balance - Gua Sha

Gua Sha, loosely translates as “scraping of the red marks”. 

Using special tools made of Jade, horn, or ceramic to scrape the skin helps to remove blockages and aims to restore harmony. The scraping squashes the soft tissues bringing stagnated blood and toxins to the surface where the blood supply to the skin can carry it away more readily.

Gua Sha gives a deep tissue massage and can be very relaxing and it  functions to cool the client who feels too warm, warms the client who is too cold, while relaxing tension and reducing anxiety.

Clients experience an immediate change in stiffness, pain, emotional state as the blockages are broken down and the Qi begins to move freely, increasing mobility and releasing the emotions too.https://www.pacificcollege.edu/news/press-
