Gua Sha (pronounced gwah SHAH) is a treatment that has been used all over the world as a home remedy for all sorts of ailments. During a gua sha treatment I first apply an herb-infused oil to the area that will be treated. Then, using the side of a Chinese soup spoon, I rub the treatment area in order to relax muscle tension and increase the blood flow to an injured area to speed healing.
