Gua sha is a body and face scraping technique that’s used for a variety of health benefits. It’s a part of the system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with mentions in the Shanghan Lun, a Chinese medical text on illness from BC 220.

Gua sha involves the use of a tool to stroke the skin and increase circulation. This may promote detoxification, relax tight muscles, and encourage healing.

What is gua sha?

The literal meaning of gua sha is “to scrape sand,” which refers to the light, speckled bruising on the skin after a treatment. In TCM, gua sha is believed to move blood and chi. 

The most common conditions and symptoms treated with gua sha include:

  • back pain
  • shoulder and neck tension
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • tennis elbow
  • poor circulation
  • scar tissue

To promote lymphatic drainage

  1. Start at the chin, then sweep the gua sha tool along your jawline and up to the ear.
  2. Move the tool behind the earlobe, and then down the neck.
  3. Repeat three times.

To relieve tension in the head

  1. Start in the middle of your forehead and work your way out toward the temples, all the way to the hairline.
  2. Repeat as many times as you’d like.

To contour and de-puff your nose

  1. Lightly scrape the tool up the bridge of your nose.
  2. Bring it down along the side of the nose to the cheek.
  3. Repeat three times.
