About The Event

Gua sha is an integrative therapy that involves gliding a smooth-edged instrument known as a gua massage tool over the client’s skin to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, increase range of motion, and relieve chronic pain.

During this 4 hour course, attendees are live at the studio and will learn:

· The history of Gua Sha

· How to approach a client about receiving Gua Sha

· Post session care for the client

· The indications and contraindications of Gua Sha

· How to care for your tools

· How to integrate this bodywork modality into a massage session, while staying within our scope of practice.

This class will focus on applying Gua Sha to a client’s back, hips, neck, arms, and legs for addressing the soft tissues of the body including the fascia and musculoskeletal system.  A gentle version that can be used on the face as a facial technique will be discussed.

.  

Please bring  a table, linens and lubricant for the skin for this course.   Please bring any Gua Sha, Graston or similar tools you already have. Gua Sha "spoons" will be provided to all attendees.
