Taking care of your health is not a matter of doing something only once you are ill, though that is part of it. Truly, though? Taking care of your health means that you are proactive and that you nurture your wellness as a natural part of your routine lifestyle. That can mean the more well-known acupuncture, it could be something less-familiar to you, like tui na or other manual therapies. It could be herbs or mindfulness practice. When all is said and done, you have an incredibly rich resource for your health if you go with Chinese medicine. Try it, you’ll see!
In my own practice as an AOBTA-CP (a fancy term that designates my qualifications to practice Asian bodywork therapies, including tui na and gua sha), I employ gua sha routinely as part of a tui na session. When I’m done with board exams and licensed for acupuncture and herbs (by mid-September if all goes as planned), I will continue to provide these services with or without needling.
So why, you may be asking, is this worth a blog post?
The long story short is that I have been doing a lot of facial rejuvenation work this past year and, more and more, I use gua sha as part of the service because it works so very well. I find, though, that people have never heard of gua sha and that means…blog post!
A Two Hearts Wellness signature treatment will begin with tui na to boost circulation and to enhance the healthy function of your organ systems in a way that is similar to an acupuncture treatment. With your body in a state of balance and relaxation, the jade gua sha instrument can lift and sculpt, and smooth and refine. Cupping moves fluids and reduces lines and puffiness. The jade roller, finally, defines and perfects. All total, a treatment can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, dullness, and uneven tone. This can result in a tighter neck and a defined jawline, brighter skin tone, and lifting of brow and eye areas.
