Gua Sha is a healing technique used in traditional Chinese medicine. Pronounced Gwa-Sa, the technique involves applying an edged tool to the skin. ‘Gua’ means scraping and ‘sha’ means sand. The sand refers to a rough and irregular texture that can be palpated as the edge of the tool encounters affected soft tissue.
During treatment, ‘Sha’ can become visible and appear as Petechiae. Petechiae are pin-head sized red dots resulting from capillary haemorrhage. These dots will fade in 2 to 3 days.
So if you are complaining of pain and tightness in your neck, chronic headaches, achilles tendonitis, pain in your mid-back, tight hip flexors, rotator cuff shoulder injuries, then book a Gua Sha treatment. It really is an unbelievable treatment, with an instant reaction!
