What Is Gua Sha?

Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) technique that helps break up the stagnation of blood flow in the areas of pain in the body. A smooth-edged instrument is used to apply short or long strokes in the pain areas or on the back parallel to the spine.

While gua sha is most commonly used to treat pain, it can also be used to treat conditions such as, asthma, bronchitis, colds, flu, fever, heatstroke, fibromyalgia, strains, sprains, and muscle spasms.
