<![CDATA[Does the "sha" make damage to skin? ]]> http://www.guashashop.com/gua-sha-treatment/does-the-sha-make-damage-to-skin/ After gua sha, the skin will be raised red or purple "sha" and it looks very horrible. So some people wonder whether the skin was damaged, but you are no need to worry about it whatever the color of the "sha" is. Usually, the color of the "sha" will be a indicator of the disease severity. The heavier the disease is, the deeper color does the "sha" show.

The "sha" is one type of toxins or waste "bleeding", which already be blocked in the blood vessels, It is totally different from the bleeding after physical breakness of the blood vessels. After this type of "bleeding" The toxins and waste are expelled from the blood but the blood vessels remains intact.

Under normal circumstances, the "sha" on the skin will gradually subside within 3-5 days and will take one week maximumly to go back to normal status. So It will not damage the skin, on the contrary,It will make the skin more healthy, beautifull than before by promoting the blood circulation and strengthening the local blood circulation.

<![CDATA[What is gua sha?]]> http://www.guashashop.com/gua-sha-treatment/what-is-gua-sha/ Gua sha therapy (Scraping therapy) is an ancient Chinese traditional natural therapy and is based on the theory of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), By scraping the skin of the relevant parts of the human body with the tools of horns , jade or other material, We can get the purpose of promoting blood circulation and dredging meridians.

With the skin being scraped by a gua sha tool, The skin will be raised small red petechiae which called 'sha' in chinese ,and the "sha"will fade within 2 or 3 days. By Raising sha, the capillaries will be highly dilated and it will enhance the sweat secretion and circulation of the body blood.It will helps to remove blood stagnation which considered pathogenic and promote body metabolic processes.

Gua sha has immediate effect for Hypertension,stiffness,heat stroke, fever,cough,chill,nausea,and muscle pain caused by cold syndrome. The patient will experience immediate relief from above symptom after gua sha tehrapy.By performing gua sha regulary, we also can coordinate the "qi" of the body, relieve fatigue and enhance immune function of the body.

For these reasons, gua sha is widely used in clinic,SPA relaxation salon, Beauty Salon and homes in China, But in western contry, gua sha is seldom known to the poeple, But we also can find some trace of gua sha therapy from the current popular graston therapy, massage therapy or some other natural therapy.

Gua sha therapy is an easy performing technique and it is valuable in preventing and treatment of upper respiratory,digestive problems,acute infectious illness and many other acute or chronic disorders.

Many people want to learn gua sha but they are fully upset by complicated theory of the TCM (traditional chinese medicine ),But I can declare that, for the beginner, you are no need to grasp everything includding "meridians" "qi" "acupoint" and so on, What you need to do is just follow the gua sha guide step by step and scrape the appropriate position with gua sha tool by correct method. That's enough to get effect no matter whether you understand the theory of TCM or not.
