Although Acupuncture and herbs are the most well known therapies used by Chinese medicine practitioners, I also use Manual Therapy techniques.

One of those is gua sha.

This is where I put some liniment on the skin and then use a smooth edged tool (a gua sha "comb") to slide it along the affected area of the skin. It is very very useful for pain and feels good.

Both acute and chronic pain are treated successfully with gua sha but it is also used to treat other conditions like chest colds, sprains, post surgical stagnation, etc.

The motion of gua sha increases oxygen and blood flow to the treated area and stimulates the body's own healing systems.
