Gua Sha, a type of traditional Chinese medicinal practice, is an essential part of our therapeutic offerings at Grand Madison Acupuncture. With a history that spans thousands of years, Gua Sha is known for its ability to alleviate chronic pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing and wellness.
Gua Sha involves using a smooth-edged instrument to apply short or long strokes on the skin, typically in the area where you’re experiencing discomfort. This action, often described as ‘scraping’, increases blood flow to the surface, promoting metabolic cell repair, regeneration, and healing.
Benefits of Gua Sha
Gua Sha therapy offers numerous benefits. It can boost circulation, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the immune system. If you’re experiencing musculoskeletal issues, Gua Sha can provide relief by breaking down scar tissue and connective tissue, improving movement in the joints. Gua Sha is also beneficial for those dealing with chronic conditions like migraines, fibromyalgia, and neuropathy. The technique has been found to release unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulate oxygenation and improved cellular function.
