One of the oldest forms of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Gua Sha treats pain associated at the 'yang' (positive) surface of our body (e.g. back, neck, shoulders etc).
This is a totally safe, non-painful treatment that removes negative energy and toxic heat in form of lymphatic fluids (sha) which raises to the skin in small, red, purple or light green discolourations. This millet-like petechiae is both diagnostic and prognostic and will disappear in a couple of days.
So, why don't you give your Swiss Cherry thermal neck pad or massage balls a well deserved rest and the Chinese 'Gua Sha' a go to get that 'qi' of yours flowing again? Go on then and don't forget to let us know what you make of it.
