If YOU have experienced a Gua Sha Body Massage, we hope you are feeling looser and lighter after your recent Remedial Massage treatment.
Gua sha is a therapeutic method of classical Chinese medicine that works to improve circulation and blood flow to reduce tension and chronic pain. The scraping of skin with a gua sha tool causes the appearance of purple or red spots known as petechiae or sha.
Although this may appear visually similar to mild bruising, it actually signifies the impeded circulation of qi, blood or fluids in the area of treatment. Gua sha is used to address stagnant energy, blood and fluids within the body and to move the body back into a state of homeostasis and promote overall well-being.
We trust that you left the studio feeling rejuvenated and with increased mobility in those tight and painful areas. If your pain persists, please Contact Us.
