Today at traditional Chinese medicine I decided to try Guaa Sha, which we know as scraping. Supposedly it is better than cupping. It definitely looks like it should have hurt but for the most part it didn’t. Some parts, like the very red section on my right side, stung a little, but it wasn’t bad. It looks to me like the skin was rubbed off, but it wasn’t. Scraping brings the toxins to the surface and helps to balance your chi.
The beginning of the treatment. You can see how red it becomes. It colored quite quickly.
This evening about 9 hours after receiving the treatment.
