--Gua Sha is the Chinese term for a physical therapy technique which is equally a folk remedy and a serious practice throughout Asia.
--Loosely translated, Gua (刮) ("gaw"), means "scrape", "scratch", "rub" or "extract", while Sha (痧) ("shaw"), means sand or sediment, signifying the congestion, or toxins brought to the surface by the rubbing. The "sha" surfaces as tiny red petechiae on the skin, often described as the size of millet. In this Gua Sha is like cupping, but the rubbing covers wider areas than cupping treatments. The Vietnamese "Cao Gio" is the same technique.
--Using the Gua Sha tools the massage therapist or acupuncturist will gently scrape or rub the skin over a problem area as a deep massage, using a downward direction. The patient experiences immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chills, coughs, nausea, and so on. Gua Sha is valuable in the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many other acute or chronic disorders.
--The intention in Gua Sha is to raise the "rash" or red petechiae through the firm but not violent friction of the tool against the body. C-hi or Qi (pronounced “chee”) is the constant and vigorous movement of energy or life force that keeps us healthy and alive. Balancing the C-hi, in Traditional Chinese Medi-cine, promotes blood circulation and the removal of toxic heat, stagnant blood and lymph fluid from the body.
