Gua sha massage

Gua sha  is a traditional healing technique consisting of passing (press-stroking) a stone tool over a lubricated area of the skin. The objective is to intentionally create transitory therapeutic petechiae, called ‘sha.’ Modern research shows that a single Gua sha treatment is able to produce an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that can persist for days, making it useful for pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheeze, nausea, vomiting, and so on.  Gua sha is also effective on acute and chronic internal organ disorders, including liver inflammation in case of hepatitis.

 

In particular, the Gua sha therapeutic massage is very helpful to treat muscle pain and stiffness especially affecting the upper back, the neck or the lower back, and to get rid of viral infections more quickly.
