Gua Sha involves pressured strokes with the smooth Gua Sha tool over lubricated skin. Much like a deep tissue massage, these strokes are used to promote blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, and release lactic acid from sore muscles. This process releases congestion and stagnation along the energy lines of the body.
Gua Sha benefits include:
- Pain relief
- Increased range of motion
- A relaxed sensation where there once was tension
