So what is Cupping and Gua Sha?
Cupping is a practice in which suction is applied to a silicon or glass cup placed on the skin for the purposes of moving blood and fluids from an area of the body.
Similarly, Gua Sha is the practice of skin "scraping" with tools for the purposes of moving blood and fluids from an area of the body.
Sha is the red mark that is left behind after these practices.
Cupping and Gua Sha can be done by a provider, such as an Acupuncturist or Massage Therapist, or can be done personally at home.
