Gua Sha

Gua Sha in Vail, AZ

Gua sha is an ancient Chinese healing technique that focuses on improving circulation. It offers a unique approach to improved health and wellness and can provide relief for issues such as chronic pain. That is why we offer gua sha treatments here at our Vail, AZ naturopathic clinic.

This natural, alternative therapy involves using a massage tool to gently scrape the skin. During treatment, a technician will apply massage oil and then use a gua massage tool to gently scrape the skin. This is done through both long and short strokes that increase blood flow by stimulating circulation in the soft tissue of the skin. The technician will scrape the skin in a downward motion until treatment is complete. While this technique is most commonly performed on the back, legs, buttocks, neck, and arms, there is also a more gentle version that can be performed on the face

Gua sha focuses on healing the effects of inflammation, which is an underlying cause of many health conditions, including chronic pain. It is believed that inflammation is caused by chi, or stagnant energy. Breaking up this energy through gua sha can reduce the effects of inflammation and help improve health.
