Gua-Sha is a massage technique used in Chinese medicine to relieve pain and muscle tension. It is applied using oil and a rounded edged instrument. Gua-sha improves local circulation and breaks up scar tissue or adhesions in the muscles and connective tissue. This technique can be performed anywhere on the body, but is commonly done on the back, neck and shoulders.
