Gua Sha Massage Technique
Gua sha is a traditional Chinese medicine healing method where a smooth-edged tool is used to stroke the skin. This motion raises small red dots under the skin called petechiae. The appearance of the petechiae is the clearing of blocked qi from your energy pathways.
Gua sha therapy is especially effective at treating fascial adhesions, including Dupuytren’s contracture, carpal tunnel syndrome, IT band syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and common ailments such as frozen shoulder, headaches, and low back pain. It can also help treat inflammatory conditions where fluid is getting stuck in some regions of the body.
