Gua sha is an ancient massage technique used to reduce pain and muscle tension. A round-edged tool such as a jade stone or ceramic spoon is applied to the skin with massage oil. Benefits of gua sha are increased local blood circulation and breakdown of scar tissue. Common areas treated with gua sha are the neck, back and shoulder, though it can be applied anywhere on the body. Gua sha can leave temporary bruise-like markings on the skin, which are an indicator of the increase blood circulation and usually resolve in 3-7 days.
