      Gua sha is a Chinese home remedy that has been in existence for centuries, preserved by traditional practitioners of Chinese medicine as well as the average everyday housewife who learned it from her mother and so forth. In fact, Gua Sha is one hundred percent natural, which means no chemicals and no commercially distributed product from big pharmaceutical companies that only want to make big bucks for little relief.

      This gua sha tool (Guasha.

      This little curved tool, made of wood, makes the entire process of Gua Sha a little less painful when you take the old homegrown way and try to do it yourself.

      Needless to say, I’m a complete amateur when it comes to do it yourself holistic medicine, and had never held to ...

      • the old wives’ tales of how awesome it is.

        What it basically is is the “scraping” of the sides of the back of your neck in an effort to stimulate the acupuncture points there, and you continue scraping it until you see dots on your skin.

        It can be rather painful, yes, but it also works like the dickens, as I found out.

        I found this tool to be infinitely useful, more so than using any old

        more or less curved thing to scrape away at my neck.

        Most other tools that I used were normally cumbersome or did not have a long enough handle so that it was near impossible to reach around to fully transverse the full length of my neck.

        The fact that the handle was long also served for a much better grip; it’s actually quite surprising how tired your arms get after a while if you do it for a very long time.
