Gua Sha | 刮痧
Gua Sha is a form of TCM therapy, frequently used to relieve muscle tension and soreness.
It involves rubbing the skin in long strokes with a tool, together with herbal oil to promote blood circulation, cleansing of toxins, and clearing the meridian channels for better flow of qi.
The treatment has no major negative effects, however it is not recommended for people who have specific medical issues.
