GUA SHA

The scraping and underlining of certain areas of the skin stimulates the blood circulation and reduces the tension of the muscles.

Where the blood is particularly firmly jammed into the tight muscles, after treatment hematoma and petechiae are seen. Depending on the color of the hematoma it can be seen how long the disease has existed. For Gua Sha some simple home resources are used, such as spoon, lid or buffalo horn.

Indications:

  • Highly tense muscles
  • Pain
  • Acute colds (cold due to air conditioning or swipe)
