[/one_fourth] [three_fourth_last]Gua means to scrape/rub and Sha is the term used for the rash that occurs as a result of the scraping.

This modality promotes blood circulation, removes blood stagnation, and reduces pain. Used to treat, as well as prevent, the common cold, flu, bronchitis, and asthma, it is especially effective when used in conjunction with cupping and acupuncture to relieve fevers and inflammation in the respiratory system.

Gua Sha is also used to detoxify the body as the scraping draws excess heat and toxins to the surface to be released. The intensity/severity of the bruising is an indication of the severity of the toxicity, stagnation, or fever inside the body, which can last for several days after the treatment.
