Gua Sha is a natural alternative therapy that is done on the body and the face. It is an ancient Chinese healing technique. In gua sha, the skin is massaged in a scraping motion using patterned strokes. The strokes are made on lubricated skin with a smooth-edged instrument. Some of its many benefits include increased blood flow, reduced inflammation, and tension relief. Gua Sha can even address issues such as migraines, headaches, tight jaws, and neck, back, or chronic pains.
