Gua Sha Therapy
Freedom from pain, inflammation, and chronic illness
Gua sha (press-stroking therapy) is a remarkable healing modality that has been used for hundreds of years to treat a variety of conditions relating to pain, limited range of motion, impaired circulation, and inflammation. There has been recent scientific research showing that gua sha protects against oxidative stress, reduces inflammation, strengthens the immune system, and weakens allergic reactions.
Gua sha can be used to treat acute and chronic pain, as well as debilitating chronic conditions including hepatitis B and Lyme disease. It is extremely effective at clearing the lungs in conditions like asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory disorders. It has also been shown to be effective in treating digestive disorders such as acid reflux, constipation, and colitis.
Additionally, gua sha is a wonderful modality for treating the effects of everyday stress such as tight neck and shoulders, reducing anxiety, and easing the heaviness of grief or depression.
Patients love the way they feel after gua sha, and regularly request this treatment again and again. Please ask me about it!
