Guasha Detox

Guasha is an ancient healing technique used throughout Asia. Gua means to rub or scrape and Sha is the term used to describe congestion of blood just beneath the surface of the skin. When friction is applied with a slice of water buffalo horn in repeated even strokes along the Meridian lines the Sha surfaces as red or purple blotches which disappear totally in 3-4 days and do not cause any pain. Gua Sha is a powerful detoxifying treatment which can immediately reduce pain and stiffness and improve mobility. Because the body’s response to Gua Sha mimics sweating it can also resolve feverous conditions. Your Chisense therapist will consider Gua Sha for any case of pain or discomfort, respiratory or digestive problems and any condition where palpation of the skin indicates the presence of Sha
