Gua Sha

Gua Sha is a Chinese massage technique to relieve pain and muscle tension such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle pain, etc. It is a natural and safe technique that improves circulation and blood flow, and can be performed anywhere on the body. Just like cupping, Gua Sha can cause temporary markings on the skin called petechiae, which will naturally disappear in a few days.

People who are taking blood thinners or have clotting disorders are not good candidates for Gua Sha.
