Dear customers: Please read our FAQs and Refund Policy pages before booking a course or emailing us, as your question may already be answered. 🙂 To book a course simply find your city below and click on the link that says ‘To enrol, click here’. You will be taken to our shop where you can book and pay online. Please read the following information carefully.

  • Course status: Lockdowns and travel restrictions are making it next to impossible to plan and hold courses interstate. So we are unable to predict which courses will go ahead in the future. At this stage Victorians are unable to enter most states in Australia.
  • Online courses: Our ability to hold face-to-face courses interstate has been severely compromised by Covid19 travel restrictions and lockdowns. Unfortunately we’ve had to cancel many courses due to last minute government decisions. As a result we are planning to put all of our courses online and hold practical days in Melbourne. Please ask to be placed onto our mailing list so we can keep you informed of the first online class/course.
  • Discounts: Please note that due to sustained loss of income over the past 18 months, we are very limited in our capacity to offer discounts. We thank all of our loyal customers and students for their continued support during the pandemic.


2021: Online Training & Chat

Venue: Zoom

We are currently in the process of setting up our courses online, to be held with a combination of delivery modes and options, such as theory online, live and recorded demonstrations of techniques, in person training, and post training support sessions for practitioners who have questions regarding their practice on clients.

We’re also looking into weekly informal chats that anyone can join, especially if you are interested in traditional medicine, cupping, traditional Thai massage and more.

Feel welcome to email us your interest and to be placed on our mailing list.

“My youngest daughter had a throbbing headache for which she was about to take a neurofen tablet. I encouraged her not to take the tablet but alternatively suggested she try a new technique [I had just learned] called Gua Sha. She accepted and I started treatment. Miraculously, her headache completely disappeared. She started walking up and down the hallway, not quite comprehending what had just happened.”

Jenny Scoufis
Gua Sha Day student, Sylvania 2021
