Gua Sha has been used for centuries in East Asia and is today used by acupuncturists and other practitioners of traditional East Asian medicine throughout the world. The technique is moving and draining. The technique is performed by the practitioner scratching / rubbing on the skin with a tool, which can, for example, be made of stone, horn, porcelain or jade, etc. Gua Sha can be very effective in preventing and treating acute illness, such as digestive problems and upper respiratory tract, and many other chronic and acute disorders. Clients with e.g. stiffness, fever, colds, coughs, nausea, etc., often experience immediate relief when treated with Gua Sha.
