Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese beauty treatment that gives relief for the pain caused by issues such as migraines, chronic pain and Tourette’s syndrome while also offering a temporary sculpting effect. This fully safe form of massage is growing increasingly popular, with over 2 billion views on Tiktok. In this course, we will take you through the methods used for Gua Sha, the history of the treatment in Chinese medicine, preparation and aftercare.
