Gua sha (Body scraping)

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

In gua sha, a therapist scrapes your skin with short or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow. They make these strokes with a smooth-edged instrument known as a gua massage tool. The therapist applies massage oil to your skin, and then uses the tool to repeatedly scrape your skin in a downward motion. Gua sha is intended to address stagnant energy, called "qi", in the body that is believed to be responsible for inflammation.

Gua sha may reduce inflammation, so it’s often used to treat ailments that cause chronic pain, such as arthritis and fibromyalgia, as well as those that trigger muscle and joint pain. Gua sha may also relieve symptoms of other conditions such as:

  • Liver inflammation - caused by Hepatitis B

  • Migraine headaches - when over the counter medication does not work

  • Breast engorgement - caused by breastfeeding

  • Chronic pain (back, neck)

  • Tourette Syndrome - involuntary movements such as facial tics, throat clearing, and vocal outbursts

  • Perimenopausal syndrome - Perimenopause occurs as women move closer to menopause. Symptoms include:

  • insomnia

  • irregular periods

  • anxiety

  • fatigue

  • hot flashes

Cupping Therapy


Cupping Therapy is a natural ancient form of alternative medicine in which the bodies vital life force (or qi) is improved. It is the term applied to a technique that uses small glass cups or bamboo jars as suction devices that are placed on the skin to disperse and break up stagnation and congestion by drawing congested blood, energy or other toxins to the surface. In dry cupping, the therapist will simply place the suction cups on the skin. In wet cupping, the practitioner will make a small incision on the skin and then apply the suction cup to draw out small amounts of blood. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, bronchitis, ease scar tissue (cellulite).
