Gua sha

gua sha

Gua sha is a practice within traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).  Gua sha releases unhealthy bodily matter from blood stasis within sore, tired, stiff or injured muscle areas to stimulate new oxygenated blood flow to the areas, thus promoting metabolic cell repair, regeneration, healing and recovery. Gua sha is sometimes referred to as “scraping”, “spooning” or “coining.”
