Guasha Orthopaedic Massage
Healing touch’s Guasha Orthopaedic Massage is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
According to the principles of TCM, qi or energy, must flow freely throughout the body so you can feel your best. When qi becomes stagnant in certain areas, health issues can occur. Healing Touch therapist uses special concave and convex designed wooden stick, with groove bending that is engineered to gently scrape areas of your body where there is inflammation or stagnant qi to help improve circulation and promote healing. This method use covers a wider area with better results and less discomfort.
Does Guasha Orthopaedic hurt?
Guasha Orthopaedic involves “scraping,” and hand massages. The intensity is gently build up depending on the types of knots that the therapist encounters during the treatment. Healing Touch therapist will apply some oil to lubricate the body first and then “scrape” to your comfort level. They’re going to find the tense tissue and knots, work on it gently and gradually build up the intensity to promote circulation to help break up the areas that are all twisted up. As always, each individual’s tolerance differs, do let the therapist know your comfort level.
