Gua Sha, also called spoon massage, is a dermal friction technique used by a variety of medicinal cultures around the world. This technique is also known as Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. It is used to move stagnant blood from the tissue so that it can be perfused with fresh blood. Shown to dramatically increase the microcirculation within the tissue this technique can be used for pain, trauma, chronic stiffness, as well as bruises and skin conditions. This course will introduce you to the basic tools and techniques for this wonderful modality as well as provide you with the underlying theory and practice to know when to apply this modality.
