Gua Sha is a technique that is little known in the West, but that we truly believe YOU need to know about if you are interested in being healthy and happy.
This simple technique can make your life (and those around you) more pain-free and help you be healthier during cold and flu season. You can do it on yourself, your family, or on your friends. If you’re a massage therapist or healer, you will definitely want to add it to your bag of tricks and techniques, it is that powerful.
Gua Sha is thousands of years old. This isn’t just the latest fad in alternative healing therapies. This is the real deal…an ancient technique that has been passed down generation to generation by parents to their children and by healers to their apprentices. It’s known to be extremely safe. Gua Sha was—and still is—a healing tool “of the people” and is sometimes referred as a folk medicine. It is currently used worldwide, mostly in Asia. Westerners are quickly learning the amazing benefits of Gua Sha making it one of the HOTTEST healing modalities in the world today! People have been “spooning” as we like to sometimes call it for over a couple thousand years, and we see no end in sight!
So, what exactly IS Gua Sha? You take a simple tool, like a ceramic soup spoon or the lid of a baby food jar, and you lightly scrape the skin. The scraping releases stuck energy from the body, particularly the muscles and fascia. Once the energy is released, the pain, tension, and resistance in the body goes away and you feel RELIEF! You also see redness come up in the areas that were stuck. This redness is what we call Sha.
That is a great beginning of what you need to know about Gua Sha.
