Gua Sha is a form of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) that involves scraping of the skin using lotion and blunt tools specifically designed to provide a mobilizing effect to scar tissue, myofascial adhesions or knots. Benefits of this massage technique include improvement in range of motion, strength and/or pain perception of targeted areas following treatment. Slightly more invasive than regular massage but less invasive than cupping, this is the perfect technique to try if you're struggling with stubborn painful spots that don't seem to want to let go.
