Gua sha is a traditional Chinese technique that involves scraping the skin with a smooth-edged tool made of buffalo horn to improve local circulation which is a popular treatment in traditional Chinese medicine.
During a gua sha session, a practitioner will apply oil or lotion to the skin and then use the tool to scrape the skin in a downward motion. This technique creates redness and mild bruising on the skin, which is able to promote the flow of blood and lymphatic fluids and stimulate the body’s natural healing response.
Gua sha is often used to treat pain, stiffness, and tension in the muscles and joints, as well as to improve digestion, boost immunity, and promote overall relaxation and well-being.
