images (1)Gua what?  Gua Sha is a healing technique used in Asia, and is slowly making its way Westward, including Scott Family Chiropractic.  Literally meaning “to scrape away fever or disease”, Gua Sha uses pressured strokes with a round-edged instrument on the patient’s back and shoulders.  This removes blood stagnation, promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes.  Patients experience immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, and nausea and is also valuable in preventing and treating acute infectious illnesses, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and several other acute or chronic disorders.  For more information on Gua Sha or any other technique used by the Loveland chiropractic firm, visit http://scottchiro.com/ today!
