Gua Sha Is An East Asian Healing Technique.

A trained professional uses a small, smooth-edged tool to firmly stroke your skin in one direction. This can help improve blood flow and reduce inflammation.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, good health relies on chi, or energy, to easily flow through your body. If this important force gets blocked in an area, you can start to have health issues. Gua sha is believed to get this vital energy "unstuck" and flowing again.
