Gua Sha

 

Gua Sha is a healing technique used in Asia by practitioners of Traditional Medicine, in both the clinical setting and in homes, but little known in the West.

 

Gua Sha involves 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.  The patient experiences immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, nausea, etc.   Gua Sha is valuable in the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many other acute or chronic disorders.
