What is Gua Sha?
Gua Sha is a natural therapy that involves gliding a massage tool across your skin to improve circulation. This is an ancient Chinese remedy that has recently gained a lot of attention after some western studies have confirmed its effectiveness.
Who's using it?
Celebrities such as Gwenyth Paltrow and Elle MacPhereson swear by Gua Sha. Massage therapists in China have been using it for centuries and it's recently been gaining traction in western massage therapy.
How does it work?
Recent studies have shown that Gua Sha may improve immune response and have anti-inflammatory effects. A group at Harvard used bioluminescent imaging with a mouse and showed that Gua Sha treatment up-regulates gene expression for an enzyme (oxygenase-1) at multiple organ sites immediately after treatment. This enzyme is an antioxidant and cytoprotectant.
Historically, Gua Sha has been used to treat many illnesses such as headaches, migraines, various aches and pains (throughout the body) as well as chronic diseases such as hepatitis B (being extensively studied).
