Gua Sha is natural therapy which involves scraping your skin to improve your circulation with a massage tool. This is an ancient healing technique that can help with chronic pain and improve overall health. Dr. Ye and her team at Juntendo Clinic are experts in gua sha and have 30 years of experience. Your technician at Juntendo Clinic will scrape your skin in a downward motion with a gua massage tool to increase blood flow.
Gua sha is intended to get rid of inflammation which may cause chronic pain. Rubbing the surface of your skin repeatedly will help reduce inflammation and promote healing. Gua sha is mainly performed on patient’s back, neck, legs, and arms. A gentler version of gua sha can be used on the face. Gua sha treats a wide range of health issues like joint pain, muscle pain, inflammation, migraine headaches, and neck pain.
