Many years ago, the Chinese used a different technique to flush out antioxidants in their bodies called Gua Sha . Today, including Hattiesburg, Mississippi, people are bringing back this intense physical scraping to make their bodies the best it can be.
In the image above, Reed is performing Gua Sha. This therapeutic scraping produces an anti inflammatory and immune protective effect that lasts for days after an initial treatment. People feel relief from fever, sickness including Hepatitis, nausea, vomiting, and more. The more toxins you have in your body, the more dead blood cells will rise to the surface leaving the body looking bruised.
Many of my friends who are active find it effective for their body. Their only complaint is the redness that stays on their bodies for a few days. Some people get it done once a week for best results. Before trying Gua Sha, I recommend researching safety guidelines to ensure your body is being treated properly, preferably by a professional.
Until next time,
