Gua-sha, sometimes called ‘coining, spooning or scraping,’ is similar to massage in its technique of pressing into the body and supporting lymphatic drainage as well as blood flow. This modality, however, is instrument-assisted and requires unidirectional press-stroking of the body's surface. The intention is to create transitory therapeutic petechiae called ‘sha.’ Raising sha produces an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single treatment. Experience relief from musculoskeletal pain, stiffness, fever, chills, coughing, scar tissue build up and more.
