Gua Sha Therapy
Gua Sha is an ancient therapy used to stimulate blood flow and break up stagnation in the body; it reduces inflammation which aids in quicker recovery time. The treatment is carried out by the therapist scrapping a Gua Sha tool down the body which breaks the capillaries directly under the skin resulting in a localised reddening of the skin. The aftermath of the treatment can look painful but is actually not painful at all. The micro-traumas caused by the Gua Sha results in the body starting a healing response helping the injured area to heal quickly.
