Gua Sha in Hazlet, NJ
Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese medicine treatment that relieves tension and muscle pain. During the treatment, a tool is used to rub on the skin to create pressure. The tool is then moved back and forth to create light bruising. This intentional bruising helps break up adhesions and scar tissue in tight or spastic muscles and helps blood to flow freely again. Don’t worry though, there will be no skin removal or breaking of the skin’s surface. Gua Sha is a very safe topical modality that can help with various Neuro-Musculoskeletal conditions.
Alongside an acupuncture treatment, Gua Sha is commonly used to reduce headaches, pain due to neuropathy and radiculopathy, muscle related issues, sports-related concerns and at the first signs of a cold or flu. This treatment should only be applied by someone who understands how it works and how to identify tension spots on the body. At Airport Plaza Spine and Wellness, our skilled staff has training in the proper use of Gua Sha and can perform the treatment for you while explaining how it works.
