Gua Sha in Chicago & Palatine

Gua Sha

The name Gua sha (pronounced gwahshah) is the practice of using a tool to apply pressure and scrape the skin to relieve pain and tension. It’s not usually painful, but can sometimes be a little uncomfortable in some areas of restriction. The procedure may cause light bruising, which often appears as purple or red spots known as petechiae or sha. Gua Sha is usually incorporated into your session time, for no additional charge.
