''Gua sha'' back massage
Gua sha meaning "scraping sha-bruises", is a traditional Chinese medical treatment in which the skin is scraped to produce light bruising. Practitioners believe gua sha releases unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing.
Gua Sha is an age-old bodywork technique that can be used for pretty much anything from improving immunity, your daily aches and pains or headaches to chronic severe ailments. It is used to intentionally lightly bruise the skin by using a scraping technique in order to help detoxify the body and relieve pain. It releases built-up waste and stimulates blood flow and healing.
During this treatment a flat piece of wood or stone (called a gua sha) is used to move the lymph, release lactic acid from the muscles, break up scar tissue, and to release congestion and stagnation along the energy lines of the body.
