Gua Sha Course – Melbourne – February 9


The aim of the Gua Sha Day is getting practitioners on the right track with a thorough knowledge and practical skills-set for successful practice.

We explore the methods and applications of gua sha, otherwise known as ‘spooning’. By drawing a smooth edged instrument across the skin where an injury or imbalance resides, a distinctive reddening of the skin, known as “sha” can be observed. This is ‘colouration’ is a positive response and brings immediate and lasting benefits by reducing inflammation, coldness, tightness and pain from both the superficial and deeper levels of the body.

Typically gua sha is very effective for treating all forms of injury, as well as heat syndromes, dizziness, chills and aches. In short, it has been said: “if there is illness, gua sha treats it; if there is no illness, it strengthens our bodies”.
