My favorite tool for gua sha is a Chinese soup spoon. The non porous porcelain edge grips the skin just enough. The shape makes it easy to hold and to work the fascia in many different parts of the body. A stiff neck, shoulder ache, pain in the lower back, and planar fasciitis are no match for this simple tool. Make an appointment to experience what gua sha can do to promote healing.
Gua Sha is a technique in which a tool is scrapped across the skin to bring blood flow into an area. It works like cupping. In combination with acupuncture needles it can be just the thing to help that stiff, sore, and over stressed shoulder or back. Book an acupuncture appointment to give it a try.
