Gua Sha

Gua Sha is an ancient healing art that releases stuck energy and promotes energy flow.

It is used for pain releif particularly from muscle over use and past injuries. It can also relieve common cold symptoms and more.

The practitioner uses a ceramic soup spoon to lightly scrape the skin moving stagnant energy called sha reflected in splotchy spots. These spots only occur in tight spots that need energy released.

These spots go away in a few days. Since Gua Sha opens pores, you would not want to take a hot shower or go swimming for about 5 hours after treatment.

It is likely that you will feel a significant shift in your pain but it is recommended that you take the rest of the day off from intense physical work after a treatment.
