Gua Sha

Service-Gua-ShaGua Sha is a Traditional Chinese Medicine practice that involves the scraping of the skin, historically with a spoon or coin and more recently with specialized tools made of stone or bone. It is theorized that GuaSha may help break down scar tissue and reduce inflammation thereby improving movement in the joints and relieving pain in musculoskeletal conditions. Gua Sha can increase collagen, ease migraine pain, get rid of puffy eyes and dark circles, smoothing fine lines and sagging facial muscles, improve blood circulation and promote lymphatic drainage on the face. Gua Sha can benefit the immune system and reduce inflammation. Gua Sha is often used with breastfeeding mothers experiencing breast engorgement. It can relieve painful and swollen breasts making it difficult for babies to latch. Women experiencing Perimenopausal Syndrome have also found that weekly Gua Sha treatments help to relieve insomnia, irregular periods, anxiety, fatigue, and hot flashes.
