Gua sha is an old manual scraping technique and is used by acupuncturists and practitioners for centuries in Asia and worldwide.
It is also called coining, spooning or scraping. Gua sha is done with a tool (spoon or similar) which you use on the surface of the lubricated area of the body. Modern research shows that Gua sha generates an anti inflammatory and immune protective effect that holds for days. This is followed by a single treatment for the immediate pain relief. Gua sha helps very effective in acute and chronic internal organ disorders including liver inflammation in hepatitis.
This DVD is a visual learning tool to the book about Gua sha by Dr. Arya Nielsen. It shows the essentials of a safe and effective Gua sha treatment and provides the step-by-step application of the Gua Sha technique with patients. It provides an information from the Dr. Nielsen’s own research of the diagnostic significance of the color of Sha, and immediate Tongue changes as a direct result of Gua Sha.
This Guasha technique fits perfectly to the therapeutic treatment of acupuncturists, massage therapists, physical therapists, physician and nurses practicing. Gua Sha is easy to learn and the combination of the Nielsen’s Gua Sha book and her DVD are the best tools for it.
