Body Treatment: An all over healing technique

To use the Gua Sha on your body, apply your favorite balm or oil to the skin for easy glide. Scrape in one direction – down, away from the head, or laterally away from the spine. The first few strokes should be light, then apply a little more pressure as required. Try to keep the pressure consistent, neither going too deep and hard, nor too soft. You will want to start from the top and work your way down the body.
