Summary : ‘Sometimes called coining, spooning or scraping, Gua sha is defined as instrument-assisted unidirectional press-stroking of a lubricated area of the body surface that intentionally creates ‘transitory therapeutic petechiae’ representing extravasation of blood in the subcutis.’ Gua sha has been used for centuries in Asia, in Asian immigrant communities and by acupuncturists and practitioners of traditional East Asian medicine worldwide. With the expansion of traditional East Asian medicine, Gua sha has been used over broad geographic areas and by millions of people. It is valuable in the treatment of pain and for functional problems with impaired movement, the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many acute or chronic disorders. Research has demonstrated Gua sha radically increases surface microperfusion that stimulates immune and anti-inflammatory responses that persist for days after treatment. The second edition expands on the history of Gua sha and similar techniques used in early Western Medicine, detailing traditional theory, purpose and application and illuminated by science that focuses its relevance to modern clinical practice as well as scholarly inquiry. This book brings the technique alive for practitioners, with clear discussion of how to do it – including correct technique, appropriate application, individualization of treatment – and when to use it, with over 50 case examples, and superb color photographs and line drawings that demonstrate the technique. NEW TO THIS EDITION • New chapter on immediate and significant Tongue changes as a direct result of Gua sha • Research and biomechanisms • Literature review from Chinese language as well as English language medical journal database • New case studies • Over 30 color photographs

Summary : The title purports to introduce Gua Sha to the general public as an effective yet safe therapeutic protocol with a short learning curve, making it an extremely appropriate form of home-based treatment. The treatment is deliberated at three different levels of proficiency — plane, line and point, that correspond to myofascial, meridian and acupoint treatment, the last which effectively transforms Gua Sha into a non-invasive, needleless form of acupuncture.Conceptualized with a utilitarian resolve, this title spared little effort in covering the historic aspect of the subject matter unless it is essential foundation knowledge. Organized in three parts, the first section of the book helps build a theoretical framework for the reader by introducing TCM theories relevant to the subject. Building on this foundation, the next segment on Treatment Protocols presents the practice aspects of the subject that lay further groundwork for the chapter on Applications. In the final part on Applications, the nature of common disorders is deliberated from both contemporary medicine and TCM perspectives before touching on the treatment protocol, execution caveat and other considerations.

It is used professionally as an instrument to scrape people's pores and skin, it is said to have a therapeutic advantage. In Gua-sha, a technician scrapes your skin layer with brief or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation of the smooth cells, which increases blood circulation; they make these strokes with a smooth-edged device known as a Gua-therapeutic massage tool, the specialist applies massage essential oil to your skin layer, and then uses the tool to scrape your skin layer in a downward movement frequently. The procedure of this particular medication has a French name called tribo-effleurage. Gua-sha is an all-natural option therapy that involves scraping your skin layer with a therapeutic massage tool to boost your blood circulation. This ancient Chinese curing technique provides a unique method for better health and also deals with issues like chronic pain. Gua-sha is usually performed on the back, buttocks, neck, hands and legs. A mild version of it is even applied to the facial skin as a cosmetic technique. Your specialist may apply moderate pressure and then steadily increase strength to regulate how much pressure you are designed for. Gua-sha is supposed to handle stagnant energy called chi, professionals believe that this "chi" is responsible for swellings in any part of the body. Swelling is the reason behind several conditions associated with chronic pain. Massaging the skin's surface is considered to help split up this energy, reduce irritation and promote recovery.

Summary : The concept of self-care is, in fact, thousands of years old. This buzzword is rooted in a 2,500-year old Chinese philosophy. ‘Yang sheng’ means to nourish life – fostering your own health and wellbeing by nurturing body, mind and spirit. In this book, Katie Brindle teaches readers how to harness this powerful natural healing system to improve every aspect of their life. Yang Sheng fits and works brilliantly in modern life. Some of the techniques may seem unusual, but they are all simple, quick and effective. Even more appealing, a key principle of Chinese medicine is balance; that means not being perfect or excluding foods or having too many rules or pushing yourself to exhaustion with overwork or over-exercise. And so, Yang Sheng encourages you to have the green juice and the glass of wine, a full-on day at work and a night out dancing. For people who are overtired and overtaxed, stressed, lacking a sex drive, or who feel anxious or hopeless, the practice of Yang sheng restores balance. Our bodies are designed to self-heal – Yang Sheng knows the mechanics of how to activate this.
