Gua Sha techniques are an integral part of acupuncture and TCM-related techniques. Some tools are for acupressure and deep tissue massage, others are specific for Gua Sha techniques. Gua means to scrape and Sha means redness or swelling. Therefore, Gua Sha techniques involve the use of instruments to apply pressure or scape the skin to promote the extravasation of blood and fluids to promote normal circulation and metabolic processes.
