Gua Sha

Gua Sha is not only in Chinese medicine a well-known scrapping technique, to let out pathogenic factors in acute diseases.

"Gua" means literally "to scrape away" or "to rub or friction".
"Sha" describes a stagnation of fluids and blood at the surface of the body appearing like a "reddish elevated, millet-like skin rashes".

The Gua Sha technique allows the releasing of toxins to the surface of the body which accumulated under the skin and muscles and which blocked the meridians. Many patients may feel after the treatment tenderness on the skin, have an increased feeling of warmth and motion and do not feel the pain. It is particularly suited for cold, fever, common cold, or any pain of the skeletal system.
