GuaSha is an ancient Chinese healing technique that some may refer to as theraputic scraping. Why? Because that is what is actually happening. Your Acupuncturist will use a special tool, like the one shown above, and gently scrape your skin in a downward motion. This is meant to address stagnant energy or qi that may be responsible for inflammation. Scraping your skin in this manner is thought to increase microcirculation of your soft tissues and allow for better blood flow. Some conditions that Guasha can help with include: fevers, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, migraines, breast engorgement due to nursing, perimenopausal syndrome, and neck pain to name just a few. Come in and see if GuaSha is a right fit for you.
