Gua Shais part of the system of East Asian Medicine, which uses a whole-system medical theory to analyze constitution and health complaints, diagnose imbalances in these systems, and treat patients with various tools such as acupuncture, cupping, herbs, exercise, breath work, and Gua Sha frictioning techniques.Although Gua Sha is the more well-known name for the technique, it also has deep histories throughout South East Asia.
Gua Sha is performed using uni-directional press-stroking massage movements to manipulate and stimulate specific energy lines and points along the face and body, which help break up blood stagnation, free toxic accumulation, promote lymphatic drainage and increase the life force energy that runs throughout our body.
By increasing movement through massage and restoring inner mobility, the skin is able to naturally clear deleterious obstructions that lead to acne, rosacea, puffiness, dark circles and sensitivities. Igniting this natural healing power, the skin flourishes, develops a fresh healthy glow that radiates from within and results in long-term benefits.
