Enhancing benefits of using Gua Sha massage with bian stone tools
Welcome to the newest healing trends from an old tradition! Gua Sha is a natural method of healing used in the medical world as alternative therapy. Many acclaimed this ancient healing procedure from China as one of the best options towards wellness as well as address other health issues.
Gua Sha procedure
In the Gua Sha massage, painful body spots are identified and healed through the use of pressures in acupressure or acupuncture points. Special Gua Sha tools are used to complete the procedures.
- Apply a substantial thick balm, oil or ointment to the skin.
- Hold the instrument steadily in your hand while arms and shoulders are relaxed.
- Position the instrument between 30 to 40-degrees to the spot for treatment.
- Begin scraping in single direction; try to keep the pressure consistent, going not too deep or hard, nor too soft.
- Each stroke should be repeated between 10 and 30 times before proceeding to the next area.
Once an area is completed, keep it warm by covering immediately with a towel. Move on until all painful spots are done.
The Gua Sha tools
Gua Sha uses special types of tools from different types of materials. The top materials for tools are jade, buffalo horn, stainless steel, Rose quartz and Bian stones.
Best tool for massage
Bian stones are considered to be the best tools for Gua Sha for two reasons: they have the most ultrasonic pulses and the best frequency ranges.
Bian stones originated during the Cretaceous period when the earth was impacted by meteorites. For centuries, they were utilized for healing. An ancient medical book in China known as “Nei Jing”, had listed the five major medical practices used by the “Yellow Emperor” in Chinese religion. These are: acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine, Qigong, and Bian stone therapy. An amazing fact came out that Bian stone therapy came prior to acupuncture. For your Gua Sha massage, do it the authentic way by using Bian stones.
By doing this ancient form of healing, you manage your stress and heal diseases using the natural ways. Minimize your dependence on pharmaceuticals or other remedies that only bring temporary relief.
