This technique is an ancient Chinese application, Gua – scraping sha – red. Using a ‘tool’ the practitioner scrapes over the skin causing redness to appear in the area. By stimulating the vascular system, it is believed that any stagnation or build up can be removed which can result in relieving any ailment being treated and promoting recovery by stimulating the healing process. It can also be applied to enhance one’s immunity and to maintain good all-round health.
During the workshop we will be introducing different tools including jade, buffalo horn and rose quartz to metal lid tops and spoons, these different items make it very easy to apply and we will look at the very gentle techniques needed for the application to the face and scalp.
We will also be looking at correct application for some common conditions e.g.
- Sinus congestion
- Skin problems
- Facial tension
- Dull skin
- Can improve puffiness
- Works from the inside out brings a general improvement to appearance
Please Note: These are strong, powerful tools, which can deliver harm and bruising pressure to clients if they are used without care. Therefore, using them skilfully and learning how to adapt each technique to a range of builds, tolerances and reactions is a core part of our training.
