Gua Sha Therapy

Gua Sha has been practiced in China and Southeast Asia since around 200 B.C.E. if not longer.

It is the practice of scraping the skin until the sha, or rash, is formed. It is theorized this causes the immune system of the body to be stimulated at the site of the sha, therefore invigorating the area.

Steve makes his own herbal lotion to use in conjunction with this technique, to stimulate the flow of blood and lymph to the scraped area – thus causing a profound and deeply-felt warming effect.

Gua Sha can often remove pain instantly

Although it can be a little uncomfortable while the technique is being administered, many people report gua sha resolves their pain immediately.

It would seem that counter irritation and the stimulation of the body’s own healing mechanism produces a very calming effect on the tissue.

N.B. At Holistic Hands we use disposable tools, so there is no tool ever used on two people.
