Gua Sha (Channel Scrubbing) is one of the common therapeutic techniques frequently used in Chinese Medicine. It is performed by rubbing a specific tool against the skin along the Meridians which causes reddening or sha to form. The sha helps increase the micro perfusion (surface circulation of blood). The increase in surface circulation of blood can assist in the healing process.
Also known as Chinese massage therapy, Tui Na is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This type of Meridian point massage can be used alone to improve circulation and strengthen the body, or together with other modalities of TCM.
Cupping is a traditional method of treatment used for over 2000 years. Many other cultures throughout the world understand the benefits of cupping and use it regularly.
