Guasha is a therapy in Traditional Chinese Medicine where a tool is used to scrape or rub (gua) an area of interest on the skin with the intention of raising “sha” to the surface of the skin. Sha is the red or purplish, rash looking petechiae that indicates blood stasis in the tissues below the skin after it has been raised to the surface.
An assortment of tools can be used for this technique. However, guasha typically calls for a short plastic tool that comes in various shapes to fit the contours of the body, as well as a lubricated medium for more comfort.
Guasha is appropriate for acute and chronic cases of blood stasis, that is, where there is a blockage of blood circulation through the body. It is effective for musculoskeletal pain and it also promotes circulation, stimulates the immune system, and detoxifies. As well as musculoskeletal pain, guasha also treats common colds, asthma, bronchitis, and more.
