Gua Sha

According to leading authority, Dr. Tin Yau, this therapy is “a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine. Sometimes called ‘coining, spooning or scraping,’ gua sha is defined as instrument-assisted unidirectional press-stroking of a lubricated area of the body surface to intentionally create transitory therapeutic petechiae called ‘sha’ representing extravasation of blood in the subcutis”.

In layman’s terms, gua sha involves scraping a tool (we use bone) across the skin to release areas of muscle tension. Gua sha is a relaxing and therapeutic experience.
