An ancient Chinese healing technique that releases unhealthy matter from blood stasis within tired, stiff or injured muscle areas. This stimulates new oxygenated blood flow to the areas, promoting metabolic cell repair, regeneration, healing and recovery.

Gua sha is an alternative therapy that involves scraping the skin with a massage tool in short or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation, increase blood flow and address concerns like chronic pain. 

The strokes are performed using a smooth-edged instrument (a gua massage tool) to produce light petechiae. Gua sha is intended to address stagnant energy, called chi, in the body that is believed to be responsible for inflammation, which is an underlying cause of several conditions associated with aches and pains. Rubbing the skin’s surface with the gua massage tool is believed to help break up this energy and reduce inflammation, this helps to promote healing in the area.

Gua sha is mostly performed on the back, buttocks, neck, arms, and legs. We also offer a gentle version of this technique for the face.
