Gua Sha Skills
8 CEs Hours
Class Description: Based on the traditional Chinese medicine technique, Gua Sha has now become a trending technique used by chiropractors (Graston Therapy), sports therapists (instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, IASTM) and massage therapists (gua sha or muscle scraping). Utilizing a gua sha tool will assist the MT to smooth the myofascial and flush inflammation while relaxing deep set muscle tension. In addition to being a great hand saver for the massage therapist, it is particularly effective on tendons, ligaments and large muscle bundles like the hamstrings. The therapist will learn to apply the techniques to break up adhesions and scar tissues as well as for sinus congestion and headaches. And a routine for a firming beauty facial will be included.
