Gua Sha

Gua means to move and Sha refers to inflammation and stagnation. This ancient technique is performed by gently “scraping” the skin using a stone made from either, rose quartz, jade, or black obsidian and helps to support immune function and relieve muscle pain. There has been more scientific research done in the past few decades that support Gua Sha’s numerous health benefits.

Our Approach
& the Benefits...

No two acupuncture patients receive the same treatment for the same disease or discomfort. Acupuncturists treat patients, not diseases. They are trained to take in every detail of you, from the sound of your voice to the quality of your skin to the sparkle in your eyes. They care about your whole story, past and present. They see your body as a network of interdependent parts: muscle, bone, fascia, organs, blood and body fluids, as well as more subtle layers like meridians and qi. They see what is deficient and what is stuck, mentally as well as physically, and make adjustments like a traffic cop, facilitating the body’s own healing ability.

  • Gua Sha can help support and strengthen the immune system.

  • Gua Sha can treat over 50 western medical disorders.

  • Great results without negative side effects.

  • Detect subtle imbalances in your system and work to correct them.
