​An ancient Chinese medicine scraping technique usually performed with a jade stone, antler horn, or porcelain spoon.  The friction from the scraping tool causes adhesions to break up and aids in the circulation of Qi and blood; thus promoting healing.  Gua Sha can also be used at the first sign of illness to reduce future severity. Conditions treated by Gua Sha include: asthma, bronchitis, colds and flu, muscle strains and sprains, muscle spasms, Fibromyalgia, and general pain.  Gua Sha may also be used on the face using a gentler scraping technique. Facial Gua Sha encourages lymphatic drainage, collagen production, relieves facial muscle tension, and improves blood circulation.
