Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. This ancient Chinese healing technique may offer a unique approach to better health, addressing issues like chronic pain.

The technique of Gua sha is as old as the Ming Dynasty but it has recently enjoyed a resurgence of interest as a manual skin-smoothing and muscle-relaxing practice, including for facial treatment.

Gua sha is most often used to relieve muscle and joint pain, including back pain, tendon strain.  It can also benefit the immune system and reduce inflammation.

PLEASE NOTE at Kelli Howard Zen Medicine, we offer Gua sha combined with other techniques in our Cosmetic Acupuncture package.  We do not offer this as a standalone therapy.
