Cupping Therapy and Gua Sha(Scraping) Treatment

Cupping has the sensation of your skin tightening up and scraping is a fast gentle scratch. If you are worried about the marks staying for too long, take a hot shower or go for a run within the next few days after treatment.

Come in stressed, leave revitalized

The benefits of both Cupping Therapy and ‘Gua Sha’ are immediate. When used for muscular aches, you will feel your body relax and open up. Lymph passages are facilitated and unblocked, creating an efficient cleanup system for your muscles. Performing ‘Gua Sha’ takes between 5-10 minutes depending on the area being worked on.

The ‘Gua Sha’ or “scratching” process begins by applying oil on the muscles being worked on to reduce friction.

It then involves a smooth narrow edged object, often made from jade stone, to gently but repetitively slide over or ‘scratch’ the muscled problem area.

Depending on the condition, a temporary trial of darkness may appear on the problematic site.

Chinese medicine’s original use of these two techniques were to speed up recovery of those suffering from the common cold or flu based on the layering in the meridian theory. Modern use presents the benefits of treating muscular pain effectively.

 

Those with broken, irritated and infected skin should avoid these services until healed.
