Gua Sha (pronounced “gwa sha“), or gentle scraping, is another technique used to release muscle tension, tightness and constriction. This is a fantastic technique to help break down scar tissue from old injuries.
A specialized tool is used to gently scrape or rub the skin over a problem area.
It can also help increase immunity and release stress. Gua Sha feels similar to a deep massage and may also leave slight redness that will quickly dissipate.
