Gua Sha is a healing technique used in Asia by practitioners of Traditional Medicine which involves palpation and surface stimulation where the skin is pressured, in strokes, by a round-edged instrument; that results in the appearance of surface redness called ‘sha’, that will typically fade in 2 to 3 days.

Raising Sha removes unhealthy blood stagnation, promoting normal circulation of blood, lymph, and body fluids. The patient experiences immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, nausea, and other maladies. Gua Sha is valuable in the prevention and treatment of acute infections, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many other acute or chronic disorders.
