Gua Sha in Phoenix
Gua Sha has been used in China for as many as two thousand years.Gua means to scrape or rub.Sha is a redish skin rash(petechiae).First, herbal or massage oil is applied to a specific area on your body. I then use a smooth gua sha tool to apply short brisk strokes to that area. This creates red patches of skin (called “Sha”), detoxifying your blood and restoring the healthy flow if Qi (energy) to the area. There is no pain involved, and the Sha will fade in 2 to 3 days. But the sense of health and vitality you experience from it will last much longer.
