What is Gua Sha?
Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. Addresses issues like chronic pain.
How does Gua Sha work?
Massage oils are applied to the skin, and then the gua massage tool (smooth+edged instrument) is used repeatedly to scrape the skin in a downward motion.
This stimulates microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow.
