Guasha massage

Chinese gray-bearded aksakals have long been famous for their ability to preserve youthful vigor and health until a very old age. They owe this to renowned massage techniques, many of which are rooted in antiquity. One of these techniques, massage Guasha, has long been recognized in Europe – because it can enhance the health of both aged gray-haired and young children.

Scrape off adversity and sores
The traditional name for Guasha massage is a combination of two words. “Gua” is translated as “scraping movements in one direction”, “sha” – “bad, nasty, wrong.” Thus, “gouache” translates as “scraping all the bad and nasty.”

Indeed, in the framework of this technique, special jade or horn scrapers are used to influence the patient’s body from ancient times. Traditionally, before the massage procedure, the entire body of the patient is covered with a thin layer of a special moisturizing oil. Then, certain points and zones are localized on the skin to which massage pressure is applied.

First, the skin turns red, and subsequently dark spots begin to appear on it, which signal that the process of withdrawal of “inanimate” blood containing lactic acid has begun. This should not be scared: the appearance of this kind of spots is quite natural. As the Chinese say, “there is no exacerbation – there is no cure.” Patients do not feel pain, on the contrary, pleasant heat begins to spread evenly over problem areas. Bruises usually go away after a few days without causing any discomfort. With each new session, their size and volume decreases significantly.

After the session, experts advise drinking a lot of warm water in order to improve the dynamics of metabolism. It is also recommended to observe peace: massage can provoke the appearance of severe fatigue. No wonder: Guasha’s masters say that the effect of massage is comparable to the effect of running two dozen kilometers.

Year after year, grow our vigor
At the moment, the scope of the therapeutic use of Guasha massage is extremely diverse. Scraper massage normalizes blood circulation and helps to reduce inflammatory processes. Due to this type of massage, the functioning of internal organs and metabolism is established, muscle cramps are relieved, lymphatic drainage increases.

Scraper massage also has a positive effect on the nervous system. It stabilizes the general tone of the body, improves immunity and improves sleep. Guash massage techniques relieve fatigue and normalize appetite. In short, a wonderful massage allows you to heal both the body and the soul.

Guasha massage is also actively used in the beauty industry: as a result of the use of scraper techniques, the skin condition improves and its rejuvenation is significant. In particular, pigmentation is eliminated, skin elasticity is increased, and the general aging of the body is also slowed down.

Often, the effect of a Guasha massage can be felt already during the procedure. In general, experts in the field of traditional Chinese medicine recommend practicing Guasha massage at least once a year as part of prevention. According to them, this avoids many diseases. As a rule, at present, Guasha massage is practiced in combination with other types of healing practices, such as can massage and therapeutic heating with wormwood cigars.

Today, Guasha massage techniques are available to almost everyone: after all, in order to master them, you do not need to go to distant China. At present, both in Europe and in Russia one can learn the ancient massage art, which, according to the famous poet, will allow us to “grow up to a hundred years without old age”. We are not destined to stay young forever – but it is within our power to allow ourselves to retain youthful stature, enthusiasm, and health for a long time.
