Handmade Natural Stone Gua Sha / Scraping Massage Tool
Gua Sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve circulation, promoting recovery and relieving pain.
In Gua Sha, a technician scrapes your skin with short or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow. They make these strokes with a smooth-edged instrument known as a Gua massage tool. The technician will typically apply massage oil to your skin, and then use the tool gently but firmly to scrape your skin in a downward motion.
This ancient Chinese technique is intended to address stagnant energy in the body ("Chi") which many practitioners believe may be responsible for inflammation. Inflammation is the underlying cause of several conditions associated with chronic pain. Rubbing the skin’s surface is thought to help break up this energy, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
Gua Sha is generally performed on a person’s back, buttocks, neck, arms, and legs. A gentle version of it is even used on the face as a facial technique. Your technician may apply mild pressure, and gradually increase intensity as the treatment progresses.
This Gua Sha tool is made in the traditional manner from natural stone and has been modeled on an ancient Chinese design, to meet Gua Sha standards.
Color of actual product may vary as these tools are made from natural material.
