Service Description

GuaSha aims to move energy, known as qi or chi, around the body. The treatment involves using a crystal tool to rub the skin in long strokes applying pressure. According to traditional Chinese medicine, qi or chi is energy that flows through the body. A person’s qi must be balanced and flowing freely to ensure their health and wellbeing. Qi can become blocked, causing pain or tension in the muscles and joints. Gua sha aims to move this blocked energy to relieve aches or stiffness. Traditional East Asian medicine also views blood stasis or stagnation as a cause of pain and illness. Another aim of guasha is to move pooled or stagnated blood to relieve symptoms. GuaSha may help to break down scar tissue and connective tissue, improving movement in the joints. The treatment does not have any serious side effects but is not suitable for those with certain medical conditions. Gua sha is not suitable for everybody. People who should not have guasha include those: who have medical conditions affecting the skin or veins who bleed easily who take medication to thin their blood who have deep vein thrombosis who have an infection, tumor or wound that has not healed fully who have an implant, such as a pacemaker or internal defibrillator
