Gua Sha or scraping is another part of the field of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) which is used alone or usually after an acupuncture treatment. In this method, you go with a rounded edge of a porcelain or jade spoon on a skin area (usually on the back/ meridians) to increase the blood circulation and loosen muscle fascias. In traditional terms this brings the stagnant blood to the surface where it is released into the general circulation.Â This can cause petechiaes/ hemorrhages and hematoma under the skin. The body now will bring all its attention to the respective area in order to heal the tissue. Automatically, you have also addressed muscle tension and stiffness to heal and the body is able to move more freely with increased energy.Â In order to get good results on a long term basis, you will need several treatments.
Just likeÂ cuppingÂ Gua Sha can release tension/ stiffness, because the circulation is intensely stimulated duringÂ the treatment. By causing hematomas the body must pay special attention to the areas and can now repair the tissue and bring healing. Hard and sticky muscle fascias as well as overly trained muscles can be relaxed. Hot flashes are alleviated and detoxification is initiated and promoted.
In traditional Chinese medicine, you would say that this treatment opens the meridians, relieve blockages, and thus the “Qui”, the life energy can flow freely again. Figuratively you can visualize yourself a jam on a highway (the Meridian in this case) which you solve by clearing the defective vehicle with a tow. Thus the other cars have again free passage, as the meridian has regained free flow.
