What are the benefits of Gua Sha? Is it safe?
Gua Sha is a completely safe technique. In many cases the patient feels an immediate shift in their condition for the better. Gua Sha promotes circulation and normalizes metabolic processes. It is a valuable treatment for both external and internal pain, and is an excellent treatment for acute and chronic disorders.
We recommend rest after treatment, but if you must be active we suggest keeping it to a minimum. We also ask that patients refrain from alcohol, drugs, sex, feasting, fasting or hard labor (including working out) for the rest of the day.
