Guasha therapy, as it relates to massage, is a specialized fascial therapy. The guasha practitioner exerts force on specific body parts or trigger points with tools or hand manipulation to treat hypertonicity of the fascia and myofascial trigger points with associated build up of toxins in the soft tissue. Biomedical studies show that guasha therapy can directly stimulate peripheral nerves, improve local circulation of blood and lymph fluid, speed up the metabolism, promote nutritional supply, and facilitate the body's defense systems. This improves the state and function of the soft tissue in the treated area. Guasha therapy is a part of the study and application of Chinese medicine, and using the techniques that are within the massage therapists scope of practice can greatly enhance the effectiveness of a massage treatment.
