Gua Shua Charlotte

Gua Shua, also called scraping therapy, is an essential and lesser-known treatment tool used in traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The Gua Sha, or scraper tool, is a relatively simple tool that’s roughly the size of your hand. Gua sha works to unblock qi, a Chinese philosophy of energy medicine that controls and balances our spirit, emotions, mental health, and physical well-being. It is believed that blockages of qi cause pain and other adverse conditions in the body. Gua sha treatment is performed by our acupuncture

Gua Shua help to heal injuries and also help for:

  • Inflammation
  • Musculoskeletal issues
  • Respiratory issues
  • Scar tissue
  • Menopausal Symptoms
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The technique can be used on the face to relieve sinus pressure and TMJ (jaw tightness). Practitioners use oil and a scraping tool to increase circulation and blood flow, which can help alleviate tension and pain, minimize wrinkles, and improve your skin’s appearance. Gua sha means “scrape red” and involves scraping the skin to create abrasions.

After the treatment, it results in a rash-like spotting, which can be jarring to those unfamiliar with the treatment, but it is a sign that healing is taking place. The scrapping motion releases toxins and stagnation built up in the shallow layers of the body. It helps move stagnant blood, boosts qi energy, improves the immune system, and is an excellent treatment for inflammation, chronic pain, migraines, fever, and colds.

Gua sha tools have also become popularized in the natural beauty world. Natural remedies for skin health can be a more cost-effective alternative to expensive and sometimes dangerous modern medical practices like plastic surgery, facelifts, and Botox treatments.

Auto accident recovery testimonial

I was in recovering from the major surgery stage when I was injured in a car accident while being a passenger. The chiropractor Dr. Alec Khlebopros was very compassionate and knowledgeable. My health condition had tremendously improved, and if I can walk and run it's all because of the amazing Dr. Alec Khlepobros. His ability to understand the core of the problem and his skills exceeded all my expectations. I'm eternally grateful and would recommend Proactive Chiropractor and Rehab Center to everyone who needs that.
