With Arya Nielsen, PhD

Modern research shows Gua sha produces an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua sha treatment. This accounts for its effect on pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheeze, nausea and vomiting etc., and why Gua sha is effective in acute and chronic internal organ disorders and disease including liver inflammation in hepatitis, renal, lung, cardiovascular disease and so on.

Acupuncturists know Gua sha as a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine used in treating blood stasis. Sometimes called ‘coining, spooning or scraping’, Gua sha is defined as instrument-assisted unidirectional press-stroking of a lubricated area of the body surface to intentionally create transitory therapeutic petechiae called ‘sha’ representing extravasation of blood in the subcutis. The process of raising petechiae and their absorption is key in understanding the mechanism of healing that is Gua sha.

This day with Dr. Nielsen introduces the background evidence for Gua sha and demonstrates application of Gua sha on clinic patients. How to introduce Gua sha to patients and recommendations following Gua sha are central to safe application.

1) Introduce the science and evidence for the clinical effect of Gua sha.
2) Demonstrate Gua sha on clinic patients.
3) Guide students and practitioners in the process on becoming Gua sha practitioners.
