GUASHA IN ACUPUNCTURE
Guasha is a treatment used to release unhealthy elements and toxins from the patient's skin. Through lightly scraping the skin creating small bruises, toxins are naturally released. Guasha can be used to release chemicals from the body and also promote the rapid healing of injured areas. Practitioners of Guasha will lubricate the patient's skin and then make repeated strokes across the affected area. A smooth edge is used to apply pressure to the muscles allowing blood flow to increase.
