The Gua Sha treatment is a thousand-year-old massage and drainage method of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In Chinese, Gua stands for “scraping” and Sha means “acute illness”.
With the help of the Gua Sha stone, certain areas of the skin are scraped. As a result, reflex zones and so-called meridians, channels through which the life energy Chi flows, are activated. In TCM, massage is mainly used to prevent diseases, to stimulate blood and lymph flow, and to expel toxins.
