Gua sha Basics

Does gua sha damage blood vessels?

The red marks (sha) elicited by gua sha are the result of subcutaneous bleeding. Is gua sha harming the blood vessels? No! When areas of the body surface with microcirculation problems are scraped in gua sha therapy, the force of the scraping causes blood to leak from the capillaries into the subcutaneous tissue. This is how sha appears. When the scraping stops and all pressure is removed, no new sha will appear. If gua sha had damaged any blood vessels, the bleeding would continue even after the scraping stopped. Let me be clear: Gua sha will not injure any major blood vessels.
