Gua sha Basics

Zusanli (ST 36) and Shangjuxu (ST 37) are points on the stomach meridian. Yingxiang (LI 20) are the first and last points on the large intestine meridian, and the little finger has a connection with the small intestine. Scraping acupoints on the stomach and large intestine meridians, and points related to the large and small intestines can activate the flow of qi and blood in the meridians, which indirectly improves intestinal peristalsis to treat constipation. Scraping the area over the small and large intestines can directly improve intestinal peristalsis.
