Scrubbing Therapy (Gua Sha)

Scrubbing therapy uses a tool like a smooth jade band to scrape the skin along the meridians, usually on the patient’s neck, arms, and back.

Patients experience immediate relief from stiffness and pain, and improvements in mobility.

Benefits of scrubbing include removing stagnation and promoting normal circulation to the muscles and tissues.

It cools the patient who has an over-heated constitution (for example, young people with pimples), warms the patient who is chilled, and nourishes the patient who is deficient, and clears the toxins.
