Therapeutic Effects of Gua sha Therapy

clip_image002Many people living in modern societies have deficient constitutions caused by blood stasis. Many modern people also eat too much, which overburdens the stomach and intestines.

Furthermore, irregular lifestyle habits, stress, excessive thinking, lack of physical activity and insufficient sleep can cause endocrine and metabolic disorders. These can lead to an accumulation of metabolites in the body, which obstructs microcirculation. Over time, patients will begin to feel fatigued and can even become actively ill.

Gua sha therapy eliminates toxins from the body to improve microcirculation, promotes the flow of the larger circulatory system to resolve blood stasis, strengthen the immune system, and clean the body’s internal environment. It is a unique method for maintaining good health.


1, Eliminating Toxins to Prevent Chronic Diseases

Toxic accumulations are an important cause of sub-health and disease states Sha expressed by scraping the skin can eliminate toxins
Internal toxins are a pathogenic product that can cause zang-fu organ disorders. Toxins not only contaminate the body, but also obstruct qi and blood circulation, and are therefore an important factor in the onset and development of disease. If appropriate interventions are not performed, severe microcirculation, endocrine and metabolic disorders can occurSymptoms and diseases: various sub-health states, hyperlipemia, diabetes, heart and brain diseases, mammary hyperplasia, dysmenorrhea, gastrointestinal diseases, bone and joint pain, disorders of the immune system, and inflammation Gua sha is a dispersing and eliminating therapy.After gua sha is performed, the sweat pores are open and pathogenic qi can be eliminated directly. When Gua sha is applied on areas where toxins have accumulated, sha will appearGua sha releases blood containing internal toxins, expressing them from blood vessels to the body surface in the form of sha. The appearance of sha is the manifestation of the anti-inflammatory and antibiotic effects of gua sha therapy. Unlike conventional medication, the effects of gua sha are produced through regulating qi and blood movement, improving microcirculation, strengthening the functions of lymphocytes and other white blood cells, and accelerating the elimination of waste and toxins. By strengthening the metabolism and the self- regulatory system, gua sha can reduce inflammation and eliminate infections

2, Cleaning the Internal Environment to Maintain Youth and Beauty

An unclean internal environment results in premature aging Clearing the external body purifies the internal environment
Internal toxins: When a zang-fu organ is in a sub-health or disease state, the metabolism slows down and metabolites are not properly eliminated. They accumulate and eventually transform into toxins that pollute the bodySymptoms and diseases: dark and gloomy face, thirst, bad breath, constipation, dark-yellow urine, irritability, poor appetite, dizziness, fatigue, insomnia and poor memory Clearing the external and internal body: By opening the sweat pores and expressing sha, gua sha rapidly eliminates metabolites from the blood, promotes qi and blood circulation, stimulates the metabolism, improves microcirculation, clear the skin and cleanses the internal organsBenefiting urination, relaxing the bowels and promoting sweat:By scraping acupoints on the trunk and limbs, as well as relevant holographic zones, gua sha regulates the zang-fu organs, and repairs and strengthens the body’s ability to excrete waste by benefiting urination, relaxing the bowels and promoting sweat


3, Enhancing the Regulatoiy Functions of the Immune SystemjBoosting Immunity to Strengthen Bocfy Resistance

Unhealthy lifestyles lead to a hypo- functioning immune system Eliminating waste through sha enhances the immune system
Unhealthy lifestyles such as extremely stressful environments, smoking, excessive drinking and staying up late have a negative impact on the immune system. Lack of physical activity weakens the muscles and impedes the body's ability to respond to stress. Rich food reduces gastrointestinal peristalsis. Polluted air harms the respiratory tract and dirties the bloodSymptoms and diseases: common cold, asthma, allergies, infectious diseases and immune system disorders Mobilization of body cleaners: The blood, lymph and interstitial fluids contain lymphocytes and phagocytes. These immune substances are the “janitors” of the body, and act by recognizing and eliminating foreign substances.Sha expressed through gua sha will be recognized as a foreign substance by these janitors and quickly eliminated. Regular gua sha thus encourages the elimination of foreign matter and pathogenic products through the expression and fading of sha


4, Rapidly Activating Blood Circulation to Relieve Pain

The main causes of pain are qi stagnation and blood stasis Gua sha therapy helps by unblocking obstructions and eliminating waste
Qi stagnation and blood stasis: Traditional Chinese medicine holds that obstructed qi and blood in the meridians and collaterals lesds to pain. Qi stagnation and blood stasis are thus important causes of painSymptoms and diseases: various kinds of pain such as headache, neck and shoulder pain, low back and leg pain, gastrointestinal spasms and neuralgia;Other symptoms caused by qi and blood stagnation dizziness, blurry vision, lassitude,shortness of breath, chest oppression, acne, chloasma, and a sallow or dark complexion Gua sha therapy assists the body by unblocking obstructions and eliminating waste without using any external supplements or medicationsScraping the skin opens the sweat pores to express sha, which unblocks the meridians and collaterals, activates blood circulation, resolves blood stasis, and eliminates toxinsFree-flowing blood keeps the zang-fu organs supplied with qi and blood, and the cells with oxygen and nutrients
