guashGausha translates directly from Chinese as, “to scrape away fever.” Traditional Chinese Medicine has long believed illnesses such as colds get trapped on the exterior of our bodies where they meet the “troops” of our immune system. Performing guasha involves taking a specific guasha tool and repeatedly rubbing or scraping the tool on the skin over the sore area.

gua_sha“Sha” is best defined as the red splotches or petechia that appear on the skin from rubbing the tool repeatedly over the affected area promoting blood flow.  Blood Flow is decreased anytime we have a spasm or injury.  Both lactic and uric acid can get trapped underneath the skin or within a bound up muscle due to lack of drainage caused by the decreased blood flow.

Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, healing. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place.
