Gua sha tulee sanoista gua = kaapia, raaputtaa, hangata (scrape/rub) ja sha = punoittava jälki, petekia (reddish rash). Se on yli tuhannen vuoden ajan Aasiassa ja erityisesti Kiinassa käytetty itsehoitomuoto, jonka juuret ovat kiinalaisessa lääketieteessä. . Gua sha hoidossa vartalon ihoa hangataan voimakkaasti lastalla, joka on yleensä valmistettu jadekivestä, ruusukvartsista, bian-kivestä tai luusta – mutta hoitoon voi yhtä hyvin käyttää vaikka hillopurkin kantta tai kiinalaista soppalusikkaa! . Hoito vapauttaa jännityksiä lihaksissa ja faskioissa sekä parantaa hoidettavan alueen verenkiertoa ja aineenvaihduntaa. Hoidettavalle alueelle ilmestyy voimakkaita punaisia jälkiä. . Käsittelyn jälkeen olo on elinvoimainen ja virkeä, sillä gua sha parantaa myös qin eli elämänenergian virtaamista meridiaani- eli energiakanavissa. . Gua sha saa myös hermoston rentoutumaan, jonka myötä jännityksetkin laukeavat. . Gua sha on hyödyllinen hoitomuoto esimerkiksi migreenistä, pääkivusta, niska- ja selkäkivuista sekä stressistä kärsiville. . Kuka tahansa voi hoitaa itseään kotona gua shalla. Kosmeettinen gua sha kasvoille on myös tehokas hoitomuoto, joka tekee ihosta välittömästi elinvoimaisen. . Gua sha välineet tulevat myyntiin kesäkuun alussa ja ovat saatavilla isoimmista luonnonkosmetiikan verkkokaupoista sekä muutamalla valikoidulla jälleenmyyjällä. . @yinyourskin on verkkovalmennus, joka yhdistää ohjatun meditaation, transformatiivisen yin joogan ja sound healingin, korealaisen ihonhoitorituaalin ja kosmeettisen gua shan.

What is body combing? 

Also known as body brushing, it’s originated from the ancient Chinese practice of Gua Sha – a type of self-massage where you “press stroke” the skin with a cool, flat-edged tool.

Using a comb made out of crystals like jade or rose quartz, it’s an alternative therapy for chronic pains. Just like the name suggests, simply “comb” or massaged the areas of concern.

Helps to get rid of cellulite 

Oh yeah, body combing can help reduce the appearance of cellulite by keeping the skin firm and smooth. Unlike regular cellulite message which pushes the toxins inwards, this pushes the toxins out. It can also potentially encourage weight loss if done regularly!

According to Katie Brindle, founder of wellbeing company, The Hayo’u Method, she told The Sun, “Body combing, particularly around the abdomen, stimulates the qi, which supports the digestive system and rebalances the internal organs.”

“There is a meridian here called the ‘Dai meridian’. According to Chinese medicine, fat accumulation in these areas is often due to the blockages in this channel.”

De-puff and smooth fine lines 

As you brush your body, you’re stimulating blood circulation that can help de-puff your body and smoothen out fine lines while relaxing facial muscles. It can also detoxify your lymphatic system that allows the skin to heal and regenerate easily.

Clearing all the negative jujus 

In Chinese medicine, it’s often believed that health issues arise because of the disruption of energy flow around the body.  The comb unblocks energy channels and releases stagnation of energy by stimulating blood flow or moving your lymphatic fluid.

How to do body combing?

Apply water or your favourite body oil to your body and start combing your skin in downward strokes. It is as simple as that!

But if you don’t own any crystal comb, you can always opt for lymphatic massage treatment. Superdeals has the perfect pamper gift for you, for RM 48 you’ll get to enjoy a full-body relaxing lymphatic massage treatment + hot stone therapy. Book your weekend spa sesh now at Superdeals!
