Indexes for Holographic Meridian Scraping Gua Sha Therapy


Scraping therapy originated in ancient times, and was a popular technique of disease treatment and health preservation among the ordinary people of China for centuries. It is well known for its convenient application and rapid effect on common colds and other ailments. This folk therapy has been studied and developed by modem doctors and been applied in hospitals. After systematic research, Zhang Xiuqing and Hao Wanshan have compiled this book, based on meridian theories in combination with holographic theory with improvement of manipulation techniques and expansion of indications. The publication of this book will certainly promote the application of scraping therapy as a means of self-treatment for the general public. It is a contribution to the health of society.
