A Gua Sha Treatment

I had a wonderful deep-tissue back massage yesterday, followed by a not-unwonderful Gua Sha treatment. That is, unlike some previous treatments, it didn’t feel like someone had used a cheese-grater on my back, but instead more like 200 grit sandpaper.

That said, Ba Huo Guan (Cupping) is still my preference when it comes to such treatment.

  2. No pain, no gain? Does it hurt or just suck all the blood to the surface? I got a massage from a chinese masseur, asking him to work on a persistent agony in my left butt. I was black and blue to 3 weeks, but it worked! And it hurt!

    And what a wonderfully muscular back you have, my dear! xxx Suey
