Gua Sha

What is Gua Sha?
Gua Sha is a healing technique involving palpation and cutaneous stimulation where the skin is pressured in strokes by a round-edged instrument or scraper. This results in the appearance of small red elevated patches called 'sha'. Sha is the term used to describe blood in the subcutaneous tissue before and after it is raised as a small red bump. This will fade within a few days. If it takes longer to fade, it could indicate poor blood circulation and the practitioner must determine whether there is a deficiency of blood, Qi, Yang or a deeper organ deficiency at the root of the problem. 
 How does it work?
Raising Sha removes blood stagnation which are considered pathogenic, promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes. 

The patient experiences immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, nausea, and so on.
 What does Gua Sha feel like?
During treatment, a particular oil is applied on a particular area of the skin where our practitioner will scrape the area with a gua sha scraper. On the places where disorders are hidden, red spots appear in the skin (not on the skin) comparable to something like a hemorrhage. Because the scraping is on the oily skin you will hardly feel pain - neither during nor after the treatment. The skin will not be damaged, and the red spots will fully disappear within 3 to 7 days.


How many treatments will I need?
Treatment plans are based on each patient's individual needs, depth and duration of disease. Our experienced practitioners will give you a prognosis and treatment plan at your first visit. Our goal is to help you feel better as soon as possible. 
 What are the common conditions Gua Sha is used for?
Gua Sha is valuable in the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many other acute or chronic disorders. Gua Sha therapy is regularly used to:

~ Treat fatigue due to heat exposure (especially heat-stroke) or cold.
~ Cough and dyspnea: bronchitis, asthma, emphysema.
~ Muscle and tendon injuries. 
~ Reduce fever 
~ Push sluggish circulation, fibromyalgia.
~ Headaches
~ Stiffness, pain, immobility.
~ Digestive disorders.

For a different setting, murals of a garden or installing a wall fountain can set the mood. Store them in a cool dry place so that they remain usable. i just get concerned when Breitling watches say that they are going to have to give up anything and everything that they love for this.

In addition to mention earlier, other plant extract also are very popular and useful, for example: pomegranate extract powder. In daily life, almost all people are familiar with the fruit – pomegranate which is a red fruit with a tough outer layer, only the juice and the seeds inside are edible. Pomegranate powder often is used to lower blood pressure, relieve or protect against depression and osteoporosis, etc.

Only a proper, cheap acrylic cosmetic organizer supplier gesso should be used to prime canvas in preparation for painting with acrylic (however, acrylic paint can be applied to raw canvas if so desired without any negative effect or chemical reaction as would be the case with oils).
