Gua sha is a Traditional Chinese Medicine practice that is popular in both homes and clinics. A low level pink ‘flush’ will appear and then quickly disappear during a treatment. This varies from person to person but this shows that you’re successfully drawing circulation up into the skin under the epidermis. Scraping the skin causes it to become stimulated so that stagnant lymph and toxins are cleared out of the system. Healthier skin cells can be created once these toxins are flushed. Gua Sha is not only a massage technique, but also a detoxification technique.
