This is based on the Traditional Techniques of Gua Sha. Core purpose was to “induce crisis to hasten the resolution of disease” by using a specific tool to massage the area by countering internal inflammation. These short stroking techniques were used along traditional acupuncture involved in pain. These short stroking techniques were used along traditional acupuncture meridians involved in pain.
These same traditional tools stimulate piczo—electrical current and spread the interstitial fluid along connective tissue planes (increasing local blood flow) with light, gentle, repetitive strokes. This offers another venue to manually decrease inflammation.
These tools are available at Physio4U.
