Gua Sha

Primarily used on the neck, back, and pectorals, Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese form of muscle scraping that is largely used to treat repetition injuries, scar tissue, or chronic tightness. By use of a smooth, flat tool, the muscles are stretched and scraped to produce ‘sha’, a red petechiae that resembles bruisina. This modality is beneficial for any stubborn tissue adhesion, and works well in conjunction with Deep Tissue. Gua Sha is not suitable for those with loose or delicate skin.
